The licensee, who having had his FFL since 1990, failed to conduct a background check and complete an ATF Form 4473 for the sale of a firearm to his redacted. Mr Atland previously had this firearm in his personal collection (less than one year), and brought it back into the FFL records to “make it legal". He knew he had to run it through his records. The licensee was confused however, believing he did not have to do a background and ATF Form 4473. If this firearm were in his collection for more than one year, per Federal and State law he would have been able to give the firearm to his redacted without any paperwork or background whatsoever. Due to the extenuating circumstances, lack of other violations present, and lack of any issue of willfulness , I believe a warning letter would suffice. The licensee is now well aware of the requirements and conducting a warning conference for this one transaction handled incorrectly would be unproductive. Recommend alternate of a warning letter with no recall inspection . Warning Letter Sent 7/11/2017 Atland, Paul W.

Request SAF for Warning Letter Sent Recommend FLS update to reflect this inspection date. Recommend Renewal. Email sent to: FEL Actions Philadelphia redacted redacted
The compliance investigation disclosed 2 violations (failure to execute a F 4473 and conduct a background check), which per the AA policy merits a WC ; however, as the violations appear to be an oversight, and given that there were no sales/transfers to prob bited individuals, evidence of trafficking, traces, nor missing inventory or apparent threat to the public safety, concur with the A/S 's analysis and alternate recommendation of a WL , no Recall as sufficient AA to address the violations.
