Gun WorldWarning conference Revocation warranted
This gun dealer was cited for 6 violations. The inspection resulted in a warning conference.
A warning conference is held when a licensee has significant or repeat violations. During the conference, an area supervisor offers the licensee specific guidance on how to achieve compliance.
The licensee was found eligible for revocation. The majority of licensees whose violations merit revocation under ATF guidelines ultimately receive a lesser penalty from an ATF director of industry operations.

Licensee was cited for six (6) violations of the Gun Control Act , including 27 CFR 478.99(c) for disposing of firearms redacted individuals who appeared to be prohibited at the time of sale. This is a repeat violation from two (2) previous inspections in the past four (4) years; including in 2012 when a warning conference was held due to violations. Further investigation disclosed that one (1) of these individuals actually was prohibited, which alone should merit revocation of license. Full discretion should be exercised with regard to the fact that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System ( NICS ) gave licensee a “proceed” response following an initial “delay” for this prohibited individual. However, licensee is fully aware of requirement to not even conduct NICS checks for those potential buyers who reveal themselves to be prohibited; licensee exercised willful indifference to regulations. Therefore, revocation of license is recommended.
Based on Licensee's extensive non-compliance history, I agree with IOIs recommendation of revocation of licensee's license. Of the past seven compliance inspections, five have resulted in some sort of adverse action. In addition, 38 total violations have been issued. Despite being in agreement with IOIs recommendation of revocation, I am not concurring with recommendation and instead will recommend a DIO held WC in lieu of revocation. This will provide the licensee one more opportunity to explain their non-compliance history and any future adverse action will immediately be recommended for revocation.
Concur with AS redacted recommendation to hold a DIO Held Warning Conference ILO Revocation.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
