Cameroon has placed a ban on the sale of firearms.
The move is aimed controlling conflict in the country.
Cameroon has been dealing with a separatist uprising to the west and Boko Haram incursions to the north.
According to the Cameroonian government, the ban is meant to deal with rising violent crime.
However, some citizens say the government should rather tackle the issues that push citizens to buy guns in the first place.
