On 07/19/2016, Senior Investigator redacted initiated an Unannounced Firearms Compliance Inspection at the licensed business premises of Charles Darrell COCHRAN, d/b/a Darrell's Gun Rack, in Oakwood, VA. Investigator redacted issued an ATF Form 5030.5, Report of Violations, citing Charles Darrell COCHRAN with Four (4) violations of applicable regulations. Investigator redacted thoroughly explained the significance of the violations and the potential impact that any repeated violations might have on his FFL and operations as a dealer in firearms. Investigator redacted Recommends a Warning Conference with Recall Inspection to educate the Licensee and further enhance his ability to become compliant with applicable laws and regulations.
ALTERNATIVE RECOMMENDATION TO WARNING CONFERENCE DE inspection completed by Senior IOI redacted - There were four violations found, including failing to report redacted multiple sales and transfer of an AR receiver on redacted occasion to an out or state resident. The ATF Adverse Action Policy advises to conduct a warning conference for the sale of an AR reciever to an out of state resident. The Area Supervisor believes that a Warning Letter would be sufficient in this instance, due to the following circumstances.... The FFL 's last inspection was a recall in 2008 and no violations were found. The FFL was unaware that an AR receiver could not be transferred to an out of state resident, but was educated in depth about this regulation and has advised that it will not occur again. The purchaser of the AR receiver was a previous resident of the FFL's hometown and was known to the FFL (currently resides in Louisiana) and the sale did not violate any state laws. This is the first violation of this type in the FFL's history, and after being educated it is believed that the FFL will not make a similar mistake. Due to these factors, Area Supervisor believes a Warning Letter is more appropriate. Pll sent to DIO for his final determination.
DIO concurs with Area Supervisor's recommendation of an alternate recommendation from a warning conference and recall inspection to a warning letter and no recall inspection. The licensee completed a transfer redacted AR receiver to an out of state resident which constitutes a warning conference per the Adverse Action Policy. However, the FFL 's previous inspection in 2008 resulted in no violations being disclosed. The only other significant violation disclosed during the inspection was the failure to report redacted multiple sales of handguns. The lead IOI thoroughly educated the FFL regarding the transfers of AR receivers to out of state residents, as well as the other violations disclosed during the inspection, to ensure future compliance with the GCA .
