The licensee was cited for failing to conduct background checks on redacted occasions - the licensee accepted a non qualifying state permit as an exception to NICS or redacted occasions. ATF O 5370.1 C does not explicit address the AA required for this violation. A warning letter without recall is recommended.
I concur with issuing a warning letter is lieu of holding a warning conference. A recall inspection will not be conducted. The licensee failed to conduct redacted background checks prior to the transfer of a firearm. However, a non-qualitying permit was used instead of conducting the background check. The failure to conduct the background check when a person is not prohibited is not addressed in the updated administrative action order (5370.1 C). Based on history, a warning conference would be recommended and because the licensee "tried” to use the non-qualifying permit, a warning letter is recommended. Concerning the ATF Forms 4473 errors, the licensee also failed to ensure the forms were properly completed in Sections B and D, which include a 1.1% error rate in the certification section and a 0.6% error rate for the failure to record valid and complete identification. The licensee also failed to properly record the acquisition of redacted firearms into the acquisition and disposition record ( A & D Record) in redacted instances (0.3% error rate) and the licensee failed to record the disposition of|| firearm, reconciled by review of the corresponding ATF Form 4473 (0.1% error rate). A warning conference is not necessary to explain background checks must be conducted when presented with a non-qualifying concealed carry permit. This was fully explained during the closing conference. A warning conference is not needed to explain the corrective actions and the importance of ensuring the ATF Forms 4473s are always property completed. The responsible person (RP) is aware of his obligations. A warning letter will suffice to document violations and reinforce the licensee's obligations to comply. Note, a recall inspection is not recommended as all violations were explained during the closing conference and the warning letter will again note the violations cited.
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.
