IN THE NEWS - Staten Island Advance: Elected officials crack down on 'community guns,' a Staten Island scourge

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- They are stashed in drain pipes, trash cans, mailboxes, abandoned-car trunks, holes carved in walls, shrubs, bushes, and even in baby carriages.

Such weapons have also contributed to an increase in shootings this year in the borough, officials said.

The Advance chronicled the alarming trend two weeks ago.
