The licensee was cited for repeat violations of failing to obtain complete and accurate information in Block 11a (“Yes" - Actual Buyer) - redacted form; and Block 11 .i (“Yes” - MCDV Conviction) -redacted form - Warning Letter at Sec. 6.c.(3); and Warning Conference at Sec. 6.d.(18)-previous Warning Letter 2014; Warning Conference 2010. Additional form and inventory violations do not rise to the level of administrative action. JUSTIFICATION FOR ALTERNATE: Although repeat in nature, the violations do not appear to affect public safety. NICS proceeded both buyers and follow up background checks confirmed the same.
