A warning conference is warranted based on failure to record valid and complete ID on more than 20 percent (66.7%) of Forms 4472 examined. IOI redacted recommends Violations, Warning Letter Only, and No Recall Inspection as an alternate recommendation to a warning conference. This licensee was issued in September 1985. IOI redacted reviewed the inspection history back to 2008 and found no violations had been issued. The licensee had redacted ATF Forms 4473 on file for the inspection period. There was a failure to record the Issuing Authority for the Identification (Question 20a) on redacted of the forms. The Type of Identification, Number on Identification, and Expiration Date were complete and accurate on redacted of these forms. A Texas CHL was accepted as identification redacted form, and was documented correctly as "TXCHL" on Question 23. The licensee recorded Question 20a as "CHL". On the other form, the licensee recorded Question 20a as "TDL" instead of "TXDL". These errors do not effect the ability to verify the customer's identity. The Federal Licensing System License should note the following: •Please change the spelling of “DeSalle” to “ De Salle” •The business Voice Phone should be changed to 713-538-8799. •Mr. De Salle’s Phone number should be changed to redacted •Mr. De Salle's Email Address should be changed to email@example.com
The inspection revealed violations warranting a warning conference. Specifically, the licensee failed to record a valid and complete ID on 66.7% of Forms 4473 on file for the period of inspection (redacted out of a total of 3 forms), in violation of 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(i). In addition to the above-mentioned violations, the licensee was cited for violations of 27 CFR 478.21(a), 478.124(c)(1), 478.124(c)(4), 478.124(c)(5) and 478.125(e). It should be noted, the two A&D Book errors cited under 478.125(e), occurred outside of the current period of inspection. In addition, the licensee's compliance history (inspections in 2012 and 2010) disclosed no previous violations; therefore, none of the violations cited are repeat violations. The licensee has held the license since 1985 and there have been no changes in business ownership, structure or responsible persons . The AOS concurs with the lOI's alternate recommendation of Violations, WL Only and No Recall Inspection . FFLC should note the following updates needed to FLS database records: 1) “DeSalle” should be changed to “ De Salle”; 2) The business Voice Phone should be changed to "713-538-8799"; 3) Mr. De Salle’s Phone number should be changed to redacted 4) Mr. De Salle’s Email Address should be changed to "firstname.lastname@example.org“.
During this inspection, there were six violations cited. Two of the violations warrant a recommendation of warning conference. The licensee takes responsibility for the errors and cites oversight with regards to his review. He states he will review both the ATF Forms 4473 and A&D more carefully. Because the licensee has been in business since 1985 and is a low volume dealer, there is concern over the errors found during the inspection; therefore, a recall inspection is recommended to ensure future compliance. Since there were no missing firearms, no traces and no transfers to prohibited persons, I concur with the alternate recommendation of warning letter in lieu of a warning conference.
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.
