ALTERNATE RECOMMENDATION : Violations; Warning Letter only; No Recall inspection A Warning Conference with Warning letter and recall inspection is warranted based on Licensee's failure to properly record any form of identification in Block 20a on 94.4% of ATF Forms 4473 reviewed. However, Licensee had only 18 forms for the three year inspection period and no firearms in inventory. Ronald Bostic stated he was determined to fix all problems and be compliant with all regulations going forward. IOI redacted instructed Mr. Bostic on the correct completion of ATF Forms 4473 during the closing conference. It is believed that Licensee will show improvement during future inspections. It is believed that the Warning Letter and Report of Violations will have the desired effect of encouraging Mr. Bostic to comply with all regulations going forward. The alternate recommendation suggests no recall based on the low volume of transfer activity. It is believed inspecting Mr. Bostic one year after the current inspection would not show an accurate representation of any improvement, or lack thereof. It is believed inspecting Ronald Bostic later than one year from the current inspection will provide a more accurate picture of any improvement, or lack thereof.
Agree with IOIs recommendation of ALternate from WC to WL and No Recall based on following: Licensee's failure to properly record any form of identification in Block 20a on 94.4% of ATF Forms 4473 reviewed. However, Licensee had only 18 forms for the three year inspection period and no firearms in inventory. Ronald Bostic stated he was determined to fix all problems and be compliant with all regulations going forward IOI redacted instructed Mr. Bostic on the correct completion of ATF Forms 4473 during the closing conference. It is believed Licensee will show improvement during future inspections. It is believed that the Warning Letter and Report of Violations will have the desired effect of encouraging Mr. Bostic to comply with all regulations going forward. This was licensee's first compliance inspection since 2011 in which no violations were disclosed.
DIO concurs with alternate recommendation to issue Warning Letter, although due to the number and nature of violations cited does not conur with recommendation for no recall inspection . DIO recommends alternate WL issued and recall inspection staged within two years of this inspection closing date.
