ROV Issued; Warning Letter sent 9/24/2014
The licensee was cited for ten (10) violations of the gun control act . Nine of the ten violations were repeat violations of the gun control act, cited during the 2014 compliance inspection. According to an ATF Form 4473 and an FFL Audit Report, Mr. Perkins transferred a pistol to an individual after receiving a “Denied” response from FBI NICS . The information on the 4473 was also falsely recorded to appear as if the individual received a “delay” response and then no resolution from FBI NICS. IOI redacted recommends the revocation of the license due to the multiple repeat, willful violations regarding his ATF Forms 4473, errors in his A&D records, failing to file a multiple sale form, failing to file annual manufacturing reports, filing incorrect annual manufacturing reports, for transferring a firearm to an individual after receiving a “denied” response from FBI NICS and for putting incorrect information on an ATF Form 4473 regarding the response to a NICS check.
This inspection revealed 9 repeated violations the 10 that were cited. The violations raise this to the level of revocation. This is a small dealer whose inventory consist redacteds and redacted F Forms 4473 . Yet, his violations are troubling. Therefore, I recommend an alternative action of a DIO Warning Conference .
The violations raise this to the level of revocation. This is a small dealer whose inventory consist of redacted guns and redacted ATF Forms 4473 . Due to the low volume, the FFLs understanding of the regulations, and the willingness to comply. I recommend a DIO Conference in lieu of revocation.
