People in France with unregistered firearms are being urged to hand them in the country’s first ever nationwide weapons amnesty. The programme, running until December 2, has been organised by France’s Interior Ministry, which estimates there are between 5 and 6 million unregistered weapons in the country. FRANCE 24 visited one of the collection points in a town outside of Paris.
