Video: Finland mulls new gun laws

Government considers tougher regulations after two deadly school shootings.

    Finland's parliament is set to debate tightening the country's gun laws, nearly one year after a school shooting in which ten people died.

    An estimated 500,000 people hold gun licenses in the country, but after a series of shootings the government wants greater scrutiny of people applying for weapons permits.

    Alan Fisher reports from Jokela, which was the scene of a school shooting in 2007.
