Hall's Gun ShopRevocation/denial of renewal
This gun importer was cited for 13 violations. The inspection resulted in revocation/denial of renewal.
A final disposition of revocation/denial of renewal means that ATF officials concluded the dealer must lose its license. This requires a determination that the licensee wilfully violated regulations or is otherwise ineligible to remain in business. The licensee will either have their license revoked after a specified period of time, or be unable to renew their license once it expires.
ATF data indicates that this license is no longer active.

I concur with the recommendation of Recocation due to the preponderance of repeat violations, the fact that a WC was merrited in 2014 (this inspection meets WC criteria). The FFL has put many unmarked imported firearms into commerce even though he new they needed to be marked, and there redacted firearms missing from inventory after reconciliation.
The inspection disclosed numerous significant violations, including (among others) failure to record both the acquisition and disposition of firearms, failure to properly mark firearms imported, failure to execute an ATF Form 4473 and failure to retain required records (Form 6 and 6A). These findings support a recommendation of revocatoin.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
