Chicago police seized 425 illegal guns in January 2014

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Chicago Police Department seized more than 425 illegal firearms in the first month of 2014, police announced Monday.

"We continue to make progress, like the near all-time lows we saw last February and March, but it will become more challenging without better laws that help keep illegal guns out of our communities and punish the criminals who carry them," Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a release.

The release claims that Chicago police recover more illegal guns than officers in any other city in the country — due to "lax" federal laws and in Illinois and surrounding states with regard to the purchase and transfer of guns.

Police recovered nearly 7,000 illegal guns in 2013, the department said in January.
