CONDUCT FIREARMS COMPLIANCE INSPECTION
An alternate recommendation from Violations, Warning Conference, Warning Letter, and Recall Inspection to Violations, Warning Letter Only and Recall Inspection is requested. The licensee was not aware when a purchaser provided a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP), the licensee was required to complete Section B, Item 20a (Issuing Authority, Type of Identification, Number on Identification) and (Expiration Date) as well as Item 23 (Exemption to NICS /Valid Permit). It was the licensee’s understanding that only Section B, Item 23 was to be completed when a CWP was used as a form of identification. There was only redacted instance where the licensee failed to complete all required CWP information (missing information: “Date of Issuance”). In all other instances the licensee completed Section B, Item 20a when a valid driver’s license was provided as identification. The licensee has been educated on the proper procedures when a CWP is used as a form of identification as well as an exemption to NICS; both Section B, Item 20a and Item 23 must be completed.
