well sir as a noob i don't have any experience with the licensing authority but I have a few cops as my students. If I were to view them as the quintessential representatives of our establishment concerned then I have a few suggestions, all of them of course , revolves around NAGRI -
1. NAGRI should set up a legal panel for each zone comprising of legal experts and panel memembers along with a designated SPOC.
2. Every NAGRI member , irrespective of his experience and/or number of firearms , must undergo a counselling session with the vets and lawyers on the panel before applying for a new license.
3.After the initial session NAGRI should take a call whether to represent the member. If the designated board members decide to support the applicant's proposal they should
A) examine the paperwork to ensure it is thorough.
B) Have a representative present at the time of any official interactions.
C) In the event the license is denied follow up the case legally to its conclusion.

Additionally, for each variation permutation and combination of licensing needs of the members of this forum I suggest checklists of relevant documents along with the relevant legal provisions in downloadable format with sections and subsections clearly demarcated for ease of access . Thank you for your time.
