TULSA -- A Tulsa-area police task force yielded eye-opening results. For weeks, officers teamed up to target the problem of illegal guns across the city.

It was an effort to stem the violence seen recently in the city.

Tulsa police made more than 100 felony arrests in three and a half weeks, seized nearly 50 illegally possessed firearms, located 17 stolen cars and served 55 felony warrants.
