In order to have security guards armed they have to be licensed. This is a state by state process in the U.S. Obviously abroad they would have to satisfy the requirements of that country's or province's law. Any business attorney could assist you in obtaining the requirements you would need for each state. As you already operate in NY State, you are already in one of the states with the most stringentl regulations, especially NYC.
