New York “bans” body armor but this is how you can legally purchase, own and wear body armor in the state of New York.

To purchase and use body armor in New York you need to become a body armor retailer or sales person…

You can do this in 3 easy steps.

  1.  Become a body armor sales person in our  FREE affiliate program here <<.
  2. For proof of your new business venture  download and fill out your new Bodyguard Retailer/Sales Person Certificate here <<<.
  3. Buy your body armor inventory.

That’s it, you’re finished.

Why this is 100% completely legal…let’s break it down…

If you need to read the law banning body armor in New York go here <<

From a sellers perspective (me) we need to confirm you are legally required to purchase body armor. One of those professions is Body Armor Retailer or Sales Person.

The determination for a body armor retailer/salesperson is as follows…

“The profession of body armor retailer/salesperson is encompassed within what the 2018 federal Office of Management and Budget Standard Occupational Classification Manual refers to as a “detailed occupation,”5 code 41-2031, titled “Retail Salespersons.” Within the SOC-labeled detailed occupation of “retail salespersons,” a body armor retailer/salesperson purchases and possesses body armor for the purpose of maintaining store inventory.”

Whether you sell ZERO or a thousand, it doesn’t matter. As long as you have intent and the means to sell, you’re good to go. And if you do make any sales as an affiliate, you ‘ll get paid commission by us and you will be responsible for paying taxes on that income. You’re also responsible for abiding by all local laws, etc. However if you happen not to sell any, you don’t need to worry about it.

When you’re selling body armor to anyone in New York…
The law requires that “A body armor retailer/salesperson must meet the purchaser to accomplish the sale or delivery, and is also responsible for ensuring sales to only those individuals and entities engaged or employed in an eligible profession. Also encompassed within the lawful sale of body armor is compliance with all State laws, including but not limited to Article 28 of the Tax Law (Sales and Compensating use Taxes), which includes a requirement to register with the Tax Department and obtain a Certificate of Authority when making sales in New York State that are subject to sales tax. The duties of this position are thus necessary for facilitating the lawful purchase or sale of body armor. ”

The term “meet” is not defined and can be something done on-line. But if you sell out of state, you’re good to go. Connecticut is the only state to require someone purchase it “in person” and this day and age, that could mean a number of things. Either way, you could just not  have any luck as a sales person and not sell anything…but that’s OK, keep trying, I have faith in you.
