IOl redacted recommends WL and Recall Inspection ILO WC . Pll sent to Louisville FD DIO on 10/7/16 requesting concurrence with Alternate Recommendation
The licensee received his license in 2010, after a qualification inspection. This was the licensee's first compliance inspection. The current inspection yielded five violations. The licensee failed to timely record the acquisition of redacted pawned firearms into his A&D at the time of acquisition due to the mistaken belief that he was not supposed to enter the pawned firearms until they actually became his property if the pawned firearm was not redeemed. The violation was mitigated by the licensee was keeping a separate "pawn log" to keep track of the pawned firearms and segregating them from the other firearms. The licensee was able to recreate his office A&D record from his "pawn log" and correct the error. The licensee failed in|| instances to review and properly document the information of a valid government issued identification document on the ATF Form 4473 prior to transferring a firearm. The licensee was actually making a copy of the document and was includnig the document with the form instead of recording the information on the form as required. The other violations pertained to completion of the ATF F 4473. The licensee took immediate corrective actions and corrected those violations that could be corrected as directed. The licensee stated that he now has better understanding of the regulations and that he will ensure that all forms are properly completed in the future.
