  Have guns become part of UK culture?
Updated 09 April 2003, 10.59
Guns given up in an amnesty
More children than ever before own guns and fake guns.

The government's so worried about the problem that it's launched a gun amnesty during April, and for the first time it's targeting young people.

People will be allowed to take a guns to their local police station and hand it in without getting into trouble. So do you think there too many guns around? And have guns become a part of our culture?

Let us know what you think!
