DO NOT INSPECT BEFORE AUGUST 8, 2016. Warning Letter sent August 25, 2015.
Alternate recommendation (to warning conference). Licensee was cited for nine (9) violations of the Gun Control Act , including six (6) from previous inspection. Repeat violations included 27 CFR 478.126a, failing to report multiple handgun sales. Licensee failed to report redacted multiple handgun sale from previous inspection; in this inspection licensee failed to report redacted sales. New violations included not conducting a new National Instant Criminal Background Check System ( NICS ) check after Its 30-day expiration. Also, licensee could not account for redacted firearm which had to be reported as stolen. The lack of multiple handgun sale reporting should usually merit a warning conference due to it being a repeat violation, however, without this violation the recommendation would merely be a warning letter. Other violations were minimal; only 4% of all ATF Forms 4473 had errors. Licensee immediately filed the missing multiple sale reports; this is only the second time licensee has violated this regulation out of four (4) known inspections. It is recommended that the licensee is given another warning letter and recall inspection in the hopes that compliance improves when inspected in one (1) to two (2) years.
Concur with lOI's recommendation.
Agree with IOIs recommendation of WL and Recall in next two years in lieu of Warning Conference and Recall inspection. Failure to submit multiple sales in redacted instances and repeat of the same violation in previous inspection would result in a Warning Conference. However, all other cited violations would result in Warning Letter only. Licensee was cooperative throughout entire inspection and no willfulness was disclosed.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations. This section lists the violations found in the inspection, as well as a general description of each offense. More details on the nature of the licensee's specific violations may be found in the report PDF.
