A Nanjing university lecturer has become something of an internet celebrity after photos of him brandishing an AK-47 and other assault rifles in front of his class were posted online.

The class entitled "The Structure of Automatic Weapons" aims to teach students at the Nanjing University of Science and Technology how to handle and assemble a range of firearms from different countries. Attendance is strictly limited to students majoring in weapons manufacturing.

The teacher's name has not been made public, and a profile in Nanjing's Modern Express identified him only by the alias Wu.

The course has been warmly welcomed by students, many of whom say they never skip the class because it is so rare to have a chance to handle real guns.

Wu noted that the classroom's 36 seats were all occupied by students, adding that although the two-hour class is over at 10 am, many students are reluctant to leave and often linger until noon.

The course is taught in a special classroom that has its own bathroom, which serves as a built-in safety precaution against students leaving with a gun under the pretense of using the lavatory.

Private gun posession has been illegal in China since 1966, and university authorities say that the use of the weapons in Wu's class has been approved by the Ministry of Public Security.

Gun ownership in the People's Republic of China is heavily regulated by law. Generally, private citizens are not allowed to possess guns.
Guns can be used by law enforcement, the military and paramilitary, and security personnel protecting property of state importance (including the arms industry, financial institutions, storage of resources, and scientific research institutions).
Civilian ownership of guns is largely restricted to authorised, non-individual entities, including sporting organisations, authorised hunting reserves and wild life protection, management and research organizations. The chief exception to the general ban for individual gun ownership is for the purpose of hunting.[14][15]
Illegal possession or sale of firearms may result in a minimum punishment of 3 years in prison, with the maximum being the death penalty (needs better citation).[16]
Gun ownership in Hong Kong and Macau is tightly controlled and possession is mainly in the hands of law enforcement, military, and private security firms (providing protection for jewelers and banks). Still, possessing, manufacturing and import/exporting airsoft guns with a muzzle energy not above two joules of kinetic energy is legal to citizens in China's SARs. Under the Section 13 of Cap 238 Firearms and Ammunition Ordinance of the Hong Kong law, unrestricted firearms and ammunition requires a license,[17] and those found in possession without a license could be fined HKD$100,000 and imprisonment for up to 14 years.[18]
