Handgun permits on Long Island
Authorities recorded 66,475 active pistol permits in Long Island communities as of the end of January, according to data from the Nassau and Suffolk County police and the Suffolk Sheriff's Office. Here is the breakdown by ZIP code. Areas marked with an asterisk have more than one ZIP code associated with their territory, and one, 11556 in Uniondale, is an office complex and so no "permits per 100 residents" figure could be computed. (An earlier version of this database contained figures for inactive licenses.) You can read more about the current gun data. This database was updated on Aug. 4, 2016.
