Japan's Strict Gun Laws: Tight regulations make shootings rare

In the wake of the recent Nashville primary school shooting in the US, the debate over gun violence has resurfaced. Today's focus takes us to Japan, a country known for its low murder rates. Although gun ownership is not uncommon in Japan, it is tightly regulated. Japan's anti-gun culture has deep roots that date back 150 years and were reinforced during the US-led Occupation after World War II. Report by Ryusuke Murata, Pierre-Emmanuel Delétrée, Alexis Bregere and Justin McCurry.
