Responsible person and LLC member William Neafus was present and provided assistance during the inspection. Employee also provided assistance during the inspection. See narrative report for full details. Recommend revocation of the Federal firearms license. Licensee was cited with 14 violations of the Gun Control Act . Though this was the licensee’s first inspection, the transfer of a firearm to a known prohibited person and the transfer of firearms prior to receiving a final NICS response (and 3 days had not elapsed since the initial call) constitute a threat to public safety. redacted ATF Forms 4473 were missing from the licensee’s records and redacted multiple handgun sales were not reported. This directly impacts the ability of ATF to trace firearms, conduct criminal investigations of purchasers or potential purchasers associated with those forms or firearms or identify potential firearms traffickers and trafficking patterns. In addition, the dispositions of redacted firearms could not be determined and were reported missing. The state of the licensee’s records constituted a plain indifference and reckless disregard of the firearms recordkeeping requirements. The fact that violations were discovered in records completed not even one month after licensee was provided instruction on proper preparation of the required records demonstrates that licensee is not likely to maintain compliance with the Gun Control Act in the future.
