    Dan Pehrson rolls up to 1 Shot Coffee, a cafe in Northern Liberties, on two wheels, much like many of his environmentally conscious urban peers. He’s just the type of patron this establishment is accustomed to serving. The 28-year-old computer programmer is cool, calm and collected. And his look—blazer, jeans, sneakers, black-rimmed eyeglasses, hair tussled and neat at the same time—say hipster all the way. Pehrson, who lives in the Art Museum area, appears and acts much like everyone else at the coffeehouse. The fact that there’s a deadly weapon under his shirt seems to have no bearing on the way he carries himself. Truth be told, he wears his gun about as well as he rocks his navy blue blazer.

    The upstate New York native has lived in Pennsylvania for the past decade and says one of his favorite things about the Keystone State is the relative ease with which law-abiding citizens can obtain a license to carry firearms. “It goes across all boundaries that you could possibly imagine,” Pehrson says of gun ownership, and more specifically, of carrying a pistol on a daily basis. “Most of the people I know who own guns are doctors, lawyers, programmers and photographers.”

    The rise in gun ownership by urban dwellers has been well-documented over the past few years. In August 2007, the late Steven Wells penned a PW cover story about the diverse crowd of Philadelphians arming themselves for in-home protection. And the numbers continue to rise . . .

    Now if the young urban gun owning hipsters would only vote for pro-gun candidates.
