CONDUCT A SOUTHWEST BORDER FIREARMS DISPOSITION EMPHASIS INSPECTION. ENSURE THE LICENSEE MEETS LOCAL ZONING AND ATF REGULATIONS.
Alternative Recommendation : Licensee had a total of one firearm in inventory. The investigator cited the licensee with six violations ol the Federal firearms regulations during this inspection; two of which were failure to record the identification document on ATF Form 4473 redacted instances); and failure to prepare and submit an ATF Form 3310.4 ( multiple sale report) when the licensee transferred more than one handgun to the same individual during a single transaction redacted instances). The seriousness of the violations merits a warning conference; however, the investigator recommends a warning letter and recall inspection . The investigator based this recommendation on the following: (1) the licensee did not have any firearms missing from inventory, (2) the licensee did not transfer any firearms to prohibited persons during the inspection period, and (3) the licensee did not have any firearm traces during the inspection period. The investigator discussed the seriousness of the violations with the responsible person and steps that could be taken to ensure the same violations do occur in the future.
I concur with the alternate recommendation of Violations, WL , and Recall Inspection . The results of this particular inspection may benefit from a Warning Letter and follow up on the corrective actions stated by the licensee by conducting a Recall Inspection.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
