Guns & Lobsters
To celebrate its 29th year, in this issue of Portland Magazine, the editors have reprinted some classics from their archives, along with new graphics and updates. This article first appeared in April 2003 and looked at the issue of guns in Maine and firearm-related deaths, most of which were suicides. A postscript provides updates on then-police chief Michael Chitwood and looks at the number of concealed-weapon permit applications that were issued in 2013.
