The Michigan State Police say they are seizing more illegal firearms in Flint.
This as the city reels from 11 gun-related murders in two weeks.
First Lt. Tom Kish is the state police post commander in Flint. Wednesday he stood next to a table filled with hand guns and long guns confiscated by troopers in the past two weeks.
“The more we can pull off the streets … the more we are potentially eliminating serious, critical shootings and homicides,” says Kish.
Kish says the number of weapons seized is way up. In fact, nearly 20% of the weapons seized by troopers in Flint this year have been confiscated in the last two weeks.
