Chicago police seized more than 1,400 firearms since the new year began as part of their anti-violence efforts.

Earlier Monday, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy showed some of the guns that his officers seized. He said the Chicago Lawn District saw the greatest drop in murders city-wide, and also recovered the most firearms in area central.

McCarthy says he and his officers are doing everything possible to keep illegal guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.
