The inspection disclosed nine violations, including one warranting a warning conference. Specifically, a violation of 27 CFR 478.124(a) for licensee's failure to execute an ATF Form 4473 on redacted occasion. However, in taking into consideration, the licensee's compliance history, percentage of error vs. high number of transfers redacted firearms disposed during inspection period), and the circumstances concerning the 124(a) violation (The FFL ran a second NICS check on an original "denied” form, as a precautionary measure. The firearm was not transferred.), A/S recommends an alternate recommendation of Viols WL Only and No Recall Inspection .
During this inspection nine violations were cited. One violation warrants a recommendation of warning conference for failing to have the transferee complete an ATF Form 4473 when conducting a second NICS check. The RP explained he wanted to see if the denied status changed for the transferee and was done out of an abundance of caution. There were no untimely acquisitions or dispositions, all traces were successful, no transfers to prohibited individuals, no unreported multiple sales , no missing firearms; therefore, I propose an alternate recommendation of warning letter and no recall at this time. The FFL was last inspected in November 2012 and had no violations. There is concern over the number of violations cited during this inspection compared to no violations during the last inspection conducted shortly after license issuance. DIO James has asked AS redacted to call and express this concern with the RP and offer additional assistance to reestablish compliance.
