BEIJING - Police in 150 Chinese cities jointly destroyed more than 100,000 illegal guns Tuesday, the Ministry of Public Security said.
About 250 tons of illegal explosives will also be disposed of in the next few days, according to the statement from the ministry.
A large portion of these guns were seized by police during raids, and others were submitted by citizens, the statement said.
Half of the guns were confiscated during a national campaign targeting illegal guns and explosives, which started in February and will last until December, it said.
So far, police have busted more than 180 criminal organizations and detained 7,800 suspects involved in the illegal possession of guns and explosives, the statement said.
Since January, the number of criminal cases involving guns has dropped by 9.7 percent from the same period of last year, and criminal cases involving explosives have fallen by 21.6 percent, the statement said.
Last year, the incidence of crimes involving guns and explosives was notably reduced by 46 percent and 39 percent, respectively, from 2010, thanks to a similar national campaign.
Chinese police will strike hard on illegal guns and explosives, and they welcome citizens to provide information, the statement said.

The prison mug shots of convicts Frank Lee Morris, Clarence Anglin and John Anglin (L-R) in both their younger and older years are seen in this combination image made of handout photos from the U.S. Department of Justice released to ******* June 11, 2012. Morris and brothers Clarence and John Anglin, all serving time for bank robbery, vanished from the prison in San Francisco Bay on the night of June 11, 1962. Although many historians think it's likely they perished in the frigid treacherous currents surrounding the maximum-security island prison, their bodies were never found and some believe it's possible they made it to freedom.

A Tornado GR4 aircraft with 617 Squadron based at RAF Lossiemouth is pictured fitted with the Storm Shadow cruise missile firectly under the fuselage. This long-range air-launched and conventionally-armed missile equips RAF Tornado GR4 squadrons and saw operational service in 2003 with 617 Squadron during combat in Iraq, prior to entering full service in 2004. Post deployment analysis demonstrated the missile's exceptional accuracy, and the effect on targets was described as devastating. Based on this performance, it is arguably the most advanced weapon of its kind in the world.Feasibility studies on a possible UK requirement for a Long Range Stand- Off Missile were originally commissioned in 1982, and work was eventually subsumed in 1986 into the NATO seven-nation Modular Stand- Off Weapon programme. This project was however aborted, and the UK subsequently withdrew. With the end of the Cold War the UK’s continued need for a stand-off requirement was reviewed and endorsed as part of the ‘Options for Change’ exercise. An international competition was launched in 1994 to meet the UK’s Conventionally Armed Stand Off Missile (CASOM) requirement, and seven companies responded.
