This inspection documented violations that rise to the warning conference level. Specifically, redacted instance, the licensee failed to execute an ATF Form 4473 . Ms . Gardner stated the customer purchased a handgun and then later that same day returned to the premises, returned the firearm, and purchased a different handgun. Ms. Gardner stated that she was under the impression that since the customer returned on the same day, a new ATF Form 4473 was not required to be completed. She stated that they re-did the NICS check for the second transaction but did not have the customer complete a new ATF Form 4473. Ms. Gardner stated that she has since been made aware that a new ATF Form 4473 is required to be completed for these types of transactions. Since the licensee stated these violations occurred due to a misunderstanding of the regulations and because of their willingness to comply in the future, I am recommending a warning letter only and no recall inspection in lieu of a warning conference.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
