Conduct a full compliance inspection. On 6/8/2016, A/S redacted received a phone call from SA redacted. CE interview this FFL regarding a firearm transfer involved a separate CE case. CE determined FFL initially lied and deceived them. CE returned for a second during which the FFL produced short barrel rifle and abandoned to CE. CE's initial look at required records determined dispositions had not been recorded since February 2016 and 4473 's appeared to be incomplete and riddled with errors.
The current inspection resulted in 13 violations being cited which warrants a recommendation of Revocation due to the licensee discontinuing use of the A & D record and failing to conduct a background check or obtain an alternative permit (repeat). The licensee discontinued use of the A & D record on 2-26-16. The licensee continued to acquire and dispose of firearms after 2-26-16. There were redacted total errors in the A & D record during the current inspection. A review of these errors disclosed approximately redacted of the redacted errors occurred prior to 2-26-16. The licensee was not maintaining an accurate A & D record even prior to discontinuing use on 2-26-16. There were 38 total ATF F 4473s during the previous year. The licensee only logged redacted out of the 38 forms in the A & D record. Numerous errors were also located on the ATF F 4473s. The licensee had a 74% error rate on the ATF F 4473s during the inspection period. The licensee had a 10.5 % error rate on the certification section. The licensee failed to report a multiple handgun sale. The licensee transferred a firearm without completing an ATF F4473/background check in redacted instance. The licensee failed to retain redacted ATF F 4473s. The licensee was also found to redacted by ATF CE. A DIO Warning Conference was previously held with the licensee on 6-9-11 in lieu of revocation (UI # 775045-2011-0073). The 2011 inspection resulted in 13 violations being cited. Some of the 2011 violations included the licensee transferring a handgun to an out-of-state resident, knowingly possessing a firearm with an obliterated serial number, transferring a firearm without a background check and failure to properly maintain the A & D record. The licensee had redacted A & D errors in 2011 which was a 32% error rate. During the DIO Warning Conference, the licensee stated he would be more careful in the future to ensure firearms acquisitions and dispositions are timely recorded. During the DIO Warning Conference, the licensee also stated he would conduct periodic inventories to ensure all firearms are accurately recorded in the Acquisition & Disposition Record. During the current inspection, Daniel Clark stated he believed the last inventory he conducted for comparison to the A & D record occurred in 2014. It does not appear the licensee implemented any of the measures he stated he would implement during the inspection and DIO Warning Conference in 2011. This resulted in a drastic increase of A & D errors. There were redacted A & D record errors in 2011 and redacted A & D record errors in 2016. 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 acquisitions and dispositions in the A&D record when ATF CE showed up to investigate a firearms trafficking case in June 2016. The FFL’s failure to maintain an A&D book hindered the CE investigation. IOI redacted recommends Revocation. No referrals were submitted.
In June, 2016 ATF CE contacted the store in person regarding a firearms trafficking case involving a non-licensee. This FFL was not the target of the investigation and the FFL provided ATF CE with false information regarding a firearm acquisition. ATF CE discovered the FFL discontinued maintaining A&D records which caused a significant hindrance of the firearms trafficking investigation. This inspection is a result of IO being notified by CE of GCA recordkeeping violations. Ultimately, the FFL was cited for 13 violations of which two rise to the level of revocation. Discontinue use of A&D since 2/26/2016 and repeat violation of transferring a firearm without a background check. Additionally, 10 of the 13 violations are repeat violations from the 2011 inspection for which a DIO Warning Conference was held in lieu of revocation. A&D errors increased from 22 during the 2011 inspection to 68 in this inspection. Also, an redacted was surrendered to CE. A PII was sent to DIO Rogers on 8/12/2016 for a recommendation to pursue revocation.
