NY State will not allow someone to just get an FFL and pay the SOT. It's NOT something just any ordinary person can just do.

1. Eligibility. No license shall be issued or renewed pursuant to this

It is lengthy and has lots of requirements, but it seems that any ordinary person 21 and older that is law abiding and can own a gun can submit an application and expect it to be approved. Or did I miss something?
