But today, it’s about applying ideas to satisfy customer expectations and needs, and finding the right resources to make it happen.
The new New York law was a significant change to the way people get a handgun license. Not only did it expand the list of places that firearms are prohibited, but it also required applicants to show “good moral character” in order to get a permit.
