Conduct a manufacturer of firearms DE compliance inspection. Should be accompanied by CE.
The violations disclosed merit consideration of a Warning Conference due to the failure to conduct NICS background checks on individuals acting on behalf of trusts on the transfers of NFA firearms; licensee properly conducts NICS background checks on the transfers of GCA firearms, and was under the impression that background checks on trusts were conducted at the NFA Branch. The licensee was provided with remedial instruction, and immediately executed the required NICS background checks on individuals acting on behalf of trusts. IOI redacted believes the violations disclosed merit an alternate recommendation of a Warning Letter and Recall Inspection . The business operation is located within the industrial district of Bloomington, MN. According to redacted, Planner for the City of Bloomington, manufacturing is allowed within industrial district, however, retail sales are not permissible. redacted requested contact be made to the City of Bloomington at time of renewal of FFL - July 2017. Correction to be made in FLS data base: Hours of Operation Monday - Friday, 11:00 am - 7:00 pm Saturday, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Due to the nature of the violations cited and the fact that the main violation of failure to conduct NICS checks on those picking up firearms on behalf of trusts is easily correctable, accompanyed by the fact that the FFL has not been inspected since licensure in 2011, I concur with the alterate recomendation of WL Only with Recall inspection . A flag will be placed on the FFL in FLS not to renew without FO contact due to zoning concerns- Licensee renews in 7/2017-Recall will not be conducted until after the proscribed 12 month period and renewal application has been received by Licensing WL Sent 9/08/16
Violations warrant consideration of Warnig Conference. However a Warning Letter and Recall Inspection are appropriate after consideration of the lack of inspection history and circumstances surrounding the violations (specifically the failure to conduct NICS checks on individuals obtaining NFA firearms on behalf of trusts) that support the FFL 's contention that he misunderstood the requirements.
