Minneapolis police have recovered over 400 firearms

Minneapolis police are recovering guns at a faster rate than last year, with 26 guns taken off the streets in the past week.

The Minneapolis Police Department announced the recoveries in a Tuesday Facebook post, which indicated the 26 guns recovered from June 6 to June 12 were either used in a crime stolen, or possessed by an individual who was prohibited from having a firearm.

The department has recovered 443 guns so far in 2017, which is a 62 percent increase from the same time last year.

In the comments section of the post, many urged the department to hold an auction for the recovered firearms. However, the department indicated all recovered firearms are melted down, with the exceptions being stolen guns that are returned to their rightful owners.

The department praised the officers for their hard work and dedication, as well as community members who offered their assistance.

    Sounds to me they are on the right path to slowing gun violence at the hands of street thugs. They need to do the same on the south side of Chicago and elsewhere. I like “stop and frisk” concepts of law enforcement that’s allegedly unconstitutional due to profiling. If you are in an all black neighborhood engaged in policing then one can hardly be accused of profiling since 99.9% of the residents are black. If you are convicted felon on parole and have gun in possession you are headed back to jail…period! I’d like to see mandatory minimum sentences for gun violations increased to ten years with no chance of parole. That would make felons think twice before they decided to pack heat. So too it would clean up the streets of this human garbage very quickly..

      I agree with parts of your post, but NOT “Stop and Frisk”. That is entirely unconstitional, and violates our Fourth Amendmet rights big time. Police already have a wide latitude, when it comes to being able to search a suspect or vehicle, but they need due cause. Stop and Fisk is a clear violation of due process!

  • Bayside GolfClub

    The demcorats are full of shiit. If they were truthful about ‘gun safety’ and crimes with guns, they would support ‘stop and frisk’.. But as usual they are exactly the opposite. They want to disarm everyone but the criminals..
    More than ‘opposite’.. They are azz backwards….

      If you give government an inch , they wind up taking yours and mine, NOT HERE IN TEXAS PAL !

        Come and take it!!!

  • J. Ernst

    Doesn’t state how or why they were able to “recover” 400+ firearms in one year.
    Is it because of proactive POLICE WORK or is it a “guns for cash” program?
    Sharia LAW IS COMING under the guise of Freedom of Religion. Muslim/islamic textbooks are already being used in the elementary AND jr. high levels in the PUBIC SKOOLS to indoctrinate your and my children AND grandchildren…along with the very IDEA that gayism is taught in the same manner.
    Inclusion folks…that’s what makes the money AND changes thinking.
    Liberalism IS the communist manifesto to internal change. It’s been going on for 50 YEARS to date.

      Freedom in Islam, that’s rich! Why a bat flying backwards in a blizzard has more sight than any “FOOL” who actually thinks Islam has any freedom! FACT: Islam is a system of Govt control that tells a man/woman what to do, from the cradle to the grave! I mean, when to pray, in what direction to pray, what may or may not be eaten, and how to eat it (Halal) and what to “GIVE” and to whom it may be given, (JIHAD-Sharia Law #2 and 5) and how much! READ the Koran, get a FREE one, and the Sharia Law and then KNOW!! Islam has NO compassion for anyone, as in Sura 13:40-42, 32:13. You will “NEVER” find one verse in the Koran, that ever said Allah “loved” anyone!

      • J. Ernst

        My copy states the same as yours!
        You forgot to mention the requirement to go to Mecca, starve yourself, shit yourself….all the while walking around a black obelisk…..chanting…who knows what!!!
        Sick minds…ticking time bombs and breeding as NEW U.S. citizens!!!
        If there should be ANY TEACHING of islamic, muslim tenents; it should be to FIRST teach the children what the U.S. Constitution IS and WHAT FREEDOM AND LIBERTY IS as an AMERICAN!!! And that muslimism and islamisism is the EXACT OPPOSITE of Liberty and freedom and should be dealt with accordingly!!!

  • Michael Hutson

    Oh gee, we got rid of the guns. Good thing there are only so many guns out there. Or maybe we could, you know, ACTUALLY PUNISH FELONS instead of letting them plea bargain and go back on the street.

  • CCblogging

    Let me wrap my head around what’s going on in America. A Democrat shoots up some Republicans and then Democrats demand that the Republicans give up their guns. Sorry donkeys, that’s a deal breaker.

    • pappabill

      ever wonder why their party symbol is a JACKASS?

      • old codger

        Haven’t for quite a few years now!

  • Frank Pones

    It’s time to get behind our President no matter what party affiliation you are and and let are police, FBI and CIA and other government agencies start doing there job and get rid of the none American citizens who practice Sharia law in the United States packing.

  • SIRWIZARD

    More proof that you can get a gun without a background check. Just steal one. Or buy one from your friendly neighborhood burglar who stole one. All of this is more reasons for you and me to own a BETTER gun than the crooks have and do better self-training. The recent shooting at the baseball field shows that, “FIRE! READY! AIM!” doesn’t work well. This article also shows that folks in Minnesota aren’t doing a very good job of keeping their firearms safe.

  • Walter Harvey

    Recovered, or confiscated??

  • homer1057

    Le’s “SEE” what Islam is all about, shall we: Ladies, Sharia Law #23 to 37 says women have almost NO rights, they are NOT allowed to divorce, they have half the right of inheritance and testimony in court, she must PROVE rape w/four male witnesses, and she has NO community property in a divorce, which her husband ONLY has the right to “SAY” I divorce you 3x’s and that’s that! YOU leave w/NOTHING! There is no age limit for marriage, and that marriage is consummated at 8 or 9 years! Still want to be a Muslim, ladies! There is NO freedom of speech in Islam, as in S/L# 38, and NO equity of people in S/L! Men and women are very UNEQUAL in Islam, and you can be killed for speaking against Muhammed, or anything Islam! Still want to be a Muslim? Consider Sura 2:191-193, 5:33, 8:12-3, 9:5. 29-29, 47:4 and 7…

    I am “NOT” defending Muslims, BUT, they are the only the branch of the “ROOT” problem, and there is a way to stop all this Islamic Invasion, and IF anyone would “SEE” the solution, this would stop and fix what is going on! Here it is: In 1962-3 and 1970 the Supreme Court took Prayer, Bible Study and the 10 Commandments out of schools and off the walls and halls of schools and justice! There were NO Muslims in this country when prayer etc where in schools! The solution: BRING PRAYER, Bible Study (as commanded in 2 Tim 2:15 KJV (ONLY) and the 10 Commandments back, and YOU bring GOD back, and HE will take care of things! So, don’t say you want America great again, IF you won’t take Jesus Christ /GOD back in our schools and halls of Justice, it will never work! Jeremiah 33:3 KJV
