Bayview gun seizures top 100

Thugs in the Bayview district could use an armory.

Cops in the district took 102 guns off the street this year as of Sept. 19.

“That’s a lot of firepower,” cops said.

Gun No. 102 was seized Sept. 19 around 8:30 a.m., when three thugs hid a 12-gauge shotgun before they were detained, police said. It took cops an hour to find the gun deep in nearby bushes, police said.

“There was no way the cops were leaving the scene … with an outstanding and unsecure rifle floating around,” police said.
