(Before It's News)

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says police seize guns in Milwaukee at a rate that’s nine times as high as police in New York City. He says that clearly indicates that there are too many guns on the streets.

“There’s more gun capacity that the criminals have than the police have,” said Barrett. “And that’s a concern that I have. I don’t want our police officers to face individuals who can outgun them.”

According to Barrett, MPD seized 2,419 guns in 2016. So far in 2017, police have seized 337 guns, all while investigating a crime.

Compared to other major cities, MPD seizes guns at a rate of about 407 per 100,000 people. Los Angeles Police seize guns at a rate of 156 per 100,000 people, Chicago at 246 per 100,000, Philadelphia at 253 per 100,000 and NYC at 44 per 100,000 people.
