Handgun permits on Long Island

Long Island authorities reported issuing 70,199 active handgun permits as of late 2017 and early 2018, a 5.6 percent increase over the numbers they reported in July 2016. The information was obtained from the Nassau and Suffolk County police and the Suffolk Sheriff's Office through requests under the state's Freedom of Information Law. The statistics obviously do not include illegal handguns. The map gives a breakdown by ZIP Code. Areas marked with an asterisk have more than one ZIP Code associated with their territory, and some ZIP Codes have more communities than those listed.
