The New York Post headline paints one picture of Staten Island gun slingers: Shoot! SIers sure love guns. The facts paint another: “A middle-class enclave on the South Shore of the city’s southernmost borough is the gun capital of New York, with 509 residents — or about one in every 57 males — legally packing heat.” I Googled state stats for concealed carry and found a 2004 chart at blogostuff.blogspot.com. Staten Island’s concealed carry percentage (1.75 percent) ties with Oklahoma and falls between Arizona (1.76 percent since zooming to the top of the charts) and Montana (1.70 percent). What’s more (or WAY less), “There are dozens of ZIP codes with only one permit issued, including in Queens, The Bronx and Brooklyn.” And if Providence (pop. 170k) grants me a concealed carry permit I’ll be the first one. Ever.
