Mexico City is offering cash and computers in exchange for guns to help combat violence.
This voluntary disarmament programme comes a month after a 10-year boy was killed by a stray bullet inside a movie theatre.
The exchange point is in Iztapalapa, a borough of the Mexican capital where youth crime is among the highest.
Civilian gun ownership is illegal under Mexican law unless the owner buys the weapon from a special government run shop.
The voluntary disarmament program has been met with mixed feelings.
