Agree with IOIs recommendation of alternate from Warning Letter and No Recall in lieu of Warning Conference based on following: Licensee's compliance has improved since the most recent inspection in 2015. IOI redacted cited the licensee for four similar/repeat violations from the 2015 inspection. It should be noted that there were no repeat violations of 27 CFR 478.125(e), 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(i), 27 CFR 478.124(c)(5), 27 CFR 478.99(c), 27 CFR 478.124(a), and 27 CFR 478.102(a), all of which were cited during the 2015 inspection. IOI redacted does not feel that the violations cited during this inspection were the result of willful actions on the part of the licensee, but rather lack of attention to detail while reviewing 4473 's prior to transfer. IOI redacted conducted a thorough, block by block review of the 4473 with the licensee, concentrating on the prohibited person category questions, and the NICS section of the Form. This licensee has been associated with redacted firearms trace requests, the last being in 2012. There were no inventory discrepancies and no A&D discrepancies. IOI redacted identified no suspicious purchasers during the inspection. Customers who left blanks on questions 11a through 12 on the Form 4473 redacted ) were subsequently found not to be prohibited by ATF CE and Division Counsel (see Section 7 Suspicious/Prohibited Persons for more details)
