“Lucky 13!” Capt. Paul Chignell declared at the top of Bayview Police Station’s newsletter released Monday. He wasn’t talking about the hip Market Street dive bar, but rather the number of guns confiscated by cops in the Bayview in the past 30 days.

“Removing guns from the streets of the Bayview is our highest priority,” he said.

The latest arrest happened Sunday in the 1100 block of Palou Avenue, police said. Cops responded to the scene of shots fired in the 1400 block of Hawes Street near Shafter Avenue at 7:46 a.m. after a machine gun- fueled drive-by, police said.

Victims in the area told police that as they were driving away from the block, another car drove up with a large gun sticking out of the window.
