Field inspection performed 12/11 -12/16/15; the licensee was issued a ROV for four low-volume recordkeeping violations and a single conduct of business violation. Although the licensee's failure to conduct a NICS check merits a Warning Conference by policy, it is alternatively recommended that the licensee receive the Warning Letter and Recall inspection for the following reasons: (1.) despite assurances by the licensee to the contrary, the redacted violation was ultimately cited as the licensee could not prove the check was performed (the transaction occurred beyond the NICS Audit Log verification period); (2.) post-inspection background queries of the purchaser revealed no prohibitive background; (3.) the licensee's relatively low-volume impact upon interstate firearm commerce (transacting only nine firearms in the last 12 months); and (4.) the licensee's absence of a compliance history. With DIO concurrence, a Warning Letter was generated and sent to the licensee (via certified post with return receipt) on 01/07/16; a Recall inspection was also staged (for compliance reassessment) this same day. No further field action required at this time.
I concur with the Area Supervisor's alternate recommendation of Warning Letter and Recall inspection .
