IOI redacted recommends Revocation due to the licensee discontinuing recording dispositions in their A & D recor redacted eparate times. The current inspection disclosed seven violations of the Gun Control Act . The licensee failed to timely and/or correctly record the required disposition entries in the A & D record for 29.2% of the licensee’s total dispositions. There we redacted sposition errors all of which occurred during the inspection period. The majority of these errors were related to the licensee failing to log firearms out of the A & D record for approximately five months. A Compliance Inspection was conducted on the licensee from 3-9-11 to 8-14-12 (Ul # 775045-2011-0121) which resulted in a Warning Conference being held on 9-20-12 due to the number of A & D errors. The licensee failed to record any of the dispositions in the A & D record for the ATF F 4473s in February 2011 and March 2011. The total number of A & D errors increased fr redacted stances in 2012 redacted stances in 2016. The licensee also had a 13% error rate on the ATF F 4473s during the current inspection. The licensee has been given repeated chances to improve the accuracy of their required records but has increasingly gotten worse. It does not appear the licensee is able and/or willing to be in compliance with the firearms regulations. It has gotten to the point where the inaccuracy and incompleteness of the licensee’s required records are hindering law enforcement’s efforts to reduce violent crime and protect the public. The FFL was not recording dispositions in their A&D record when ATF CE showed up to investigate a felon in possession case in August 2015. The FFL’s failure to maintain an A&D book hindered the CE investigation. No referrals were submitted.
This inspection resulted in a report of violations for seven violations. Six of the seven violations were repeat violations from compliance inspections conducted in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011/2012. A/S redacted recommends revocation based on the following: 1. ROV # 1. 27 CFR 478.125(e): The licensee stopped maintaining dispositions in the A&D record redacted eparate times. The redacted nstance resulted in a WC . This instance was discovered by CE during straw purchase investigation. Ultimately, the FFL was cited fredacted stances of A&D violations (29.2% error rate for dispositions and 6.7 % error rate for acquisitions). This is a repeat violation from the 2011/2012 inspection which resulted in a 9/20/2012 warning conference and recall inspection . The licensee never implemented the corrective actions he discussed during the warning conference. This is evident because A&D compliance has gotten worse since the warning conference. 2. ROV # 5. 27 CFR 478.124(c)(4 redacted stances of Form 4473 Item 27, model blank a redacted stance of item 28 serial number being blank. This is also a repeat violation from the 2011/2012 inspection which resulted in a WC and Recall inspection. This repeat violation rises only to the level of ROV. However, the licensee’s continued failure to accurately enter firearm model and serial number on Form 4473 hindered an ATF stolen firearm investigation as explained in the narrative. 3. The licensee was cited for five other Form 4473 violations. Four of the five violations were repeat violations for which corrective action was discussed during a warning conference. These violations rise to the level of ROV. However, it should be noted that the FFL's failure to comply with 4473 requirements when combined with A&D violations, significantly hindered a current ATF criminal investigation of a straw purchaser and felon in possession. Despite significant errors and omissions in the required records, both the straw purchaser and felon in possession have been indicted. Records retreived on 10/11/2016. Pll sent to the FFLC on 10/14/2016 to update FLS to show OOB Revoked. Records will be sent from the Lou. II office to the OOBRC.
