Conduct a southwest border firearms disposition emphasis inspection. Ensure the licensee meets local zoning and ATF regulations.
This inspection documented violations that rise to the warning conference level. Specifically, the licensee failed to record the disposition in 100 percent of the licensee’s total dispositions during the inspection period (redacted instances). The licensee conducts a very small amount of dispositions on ATF Forms 4473 and stated this error occurred due to miscommunication between employees. The licensee also failed to properly mark redacted by failing to engrave the manufacturer’s name, city and state. The licensee has not disposed of any firearms they assembled/manufactured and immediately placed the required markings on the firearms prior to the closing conference. The licensee stated they were not aware of the marking requirements for assembled/manufactured firearms. This was the licensee’s first compliance inspection. I recommend a warning letter only and no recall inspection in lieu of a warning conference.
I concur with IOIs alternate recommendation of Violations Warning Letter only and No Recall Inspection in Lieu of the Warning conference since this was the licensee’s first compliance inspection and the licensee stated that he would conduct a weekly gun book inventory to ensure the discrepancies don’t happen in the future.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations. This section lists the violations found in the inspection, as well as a general description of each offense. More details on the nature of the licensee's specific violations may be found in the report PDF.
