This is insane, but New York has banned the use of body armor for civilians HERE. I can’t explain the level of insanity here and what classifies as ‘body armor’. Is a thick text book or metal plate considered body armor?

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.
