On October 3, 2016, Investigator redacted completed a DE Compliance Inspection at the licensed business premise of Entocon Inc. Mr. Marlin Dean Remick, President, was interviewed in regards to the company’s Type 01, Dealer of Firearms License. The closing conference was conducted on December 7, 2016 due to Mr. Remick being out of town. Violations cited, Warning letter, No Recall inspection recommended. Alternate Recommendation - ATF O 5370.1B prescribes a warning conference based on the licensee had previously been a subject of a Warning Conference, Warning Letter on December 2, 2010 for repeated similar violations. An alternate recommendation of Warning Letter is recommended as (6) years has passed since the last violation and the licensee has recently revamped his business practice from changing the personnel to computerizing all of the Acquisition and Disposition records. The last Recall Inspection on February 6, 2012 resulted in No Violations.
I concur with the recommendation of warning letter in lieu of warning conference. In addition, I recommend a recall inspection in one year. As a result of the DE inspection, five violations of the GCA were cited to include 27 CFR 478.21(a), 27 CFR 478.124(c)(1), 27 CFR 478.102(c), 27 CFR 478.126a, and 27 CFR 478.125(e). A warning conference would be warranted due to the repeat A&D violation resulting from missing firearms. In addition, failure to conducti redacted NICS check would warrant a conference with the licensee. However, this violation was due to the fact that the initial NICS check was over 30 days requiring another check prior to transfer of the firearm. Mitigating factors include the inspection yielding the previous violations occurred six years ago and the recall inspection in 2012 resulted in no violations. In addition, the licensee has incorporated various changes in the business to assist in resolving the recordkeeping errors to include hiring a store manager and additional employees to deal directly with the business records and tracking of inventory. The licensee requested that IOI review the regulations and recordkeeping requirements with his employees at the closing conference.
