KSTP got an exclusive inside look at the guns Minneapolis Police confiscate on the streets of the city.

The department took us into the Property and Evidence Unit to show us the most popular weapons they take off the streets.

In 2012 Minneapolis Police recovered 750 guns and 10 assault rifles, that's about two weapons each and every day up 20 percent from 2011.
