Venezuelan gun-crime survivors speak out

Victims narrate their plight as government enacts law to curb gun purchases.

    Venezuela has the highest murder rate in South America.

    There has been a rise in gang-related crime over the past decade, particularly in the sprawling poor slums that circle the capital, Caracas.

    The government is fighting back and has enacted a law to restrict gun purchases.

    Injured gun-crime victims tell of their plight to Al Jazeera's Adam Raney.
