The repeated Violation disclosed during this inspection merits a Warning Conference according to Item #6d(18) of the Current Adverse Action Policy (ATF O 5370. IB- 2/8/13). However, the licensee took immediate actions to prevent the violation from occurring in the future, including downloading the ATF created e4473. Because of these steps and the decrease in number of overall violations being cited, an alternate recommendation is being submitted.
ALTERNATE RECOMMENDATION : VIOLATIONS - WARNING LETTER - RECALL The inspection meets the standard for Warning Conference under the Section 6,d(18) of the Adverse ActionPolicy. The licensee was cited for its failure to prevent the transfer of a firearm to an individual who answered “Yes” to a prohibiting question on ATF F 4473 . (Transferee was not prohibited.) This is a repeat violation cited in 2014. The previous inspections under this license resulted in Warning Letters (2014 & 2013)*. An additional violation involved A&D discrepancies that do not rise to the level of adverse action. JUSTIFICATION FOR ALTERNATE: The licensee has shown a marked improvement since its previous inspections. Although repeat in nature, the F 4473 violation redacted form among the 507 forms reviewed, found with a discrepancy. RP Paul Boyd took immediate preventative action by downloading the eForm 4473 for future use, which should eliminate similar errors. There were no firearms reported lost/stolen or traces for the previous 12 months. IOI redacted stated Paul Boyd was very receptive to the corrective action and showed a genuine interest in bring his store into compliance. *This store was previously owned/operated by J-S Pawn, Inc. (5-48-35235) from 1993-2009. That entity was wholly owned/operated by the late Joe Boyd, father of RP Paul Boyd. Under that license, Paul Boyd worked as the store manager but was not a responsible person. A 2008 compliance inspection resulted in a DIO Warning Conference . (Ul: 779025-2008-0127). Lead lOI redacted rePort reflects that Joe Boyd made multiple comments during the inspection that he did not like being told what to do, implying that he was the primary person directing the actions that led to severity of the violations cited. Joe Boyd passed away in 2011.
