Conduct a division-initiated Secondary Market Trace Perfection DE inspection emphasizing increased evaluation of the licensee’s secondary market transaction history over the last 12-months. To achieve the prescribed analysis, implement to the following steps (beyond standard DE inspection protocols): • Obtain a list of all used firearms transferred in the past 12 months (the list can either take the form of a separately generated electronic form provided by the licensee or photos taken from a manually recorded A&D Record, and needs only to contain the firearm ID info and the date transferred) • Perform eTrace queries for all identified/listed firearms transferred in the last 12 months • For only those firearms returning trace “hits”, cross compare the trace time-to-crime results in eTrace to the transfer date in the licensee’s record to detect timeline discrepancies • If the licensee’s record(s) shows a transfer date that diminishes the eTrace TTC timeline (based upon the established eTrace recovery date), record the more accurate trace information on the Updated Trace Worksheet (provided to you via separate email on 11/12/15) and submit to NTC • If the new (updated) trace information reduces the TTC to less-than-a-year, obtain a copy of the corresponding 4473 as an exhibit and refer the information to Intel for CE follow-up. 'PLEASE NOTE: If eTrace returns a “hit” on any of the queried firearms, and the recovery date in eTrace comes chronologically BEFORE the transfer date identified in the licensee’s records, disregard the steps identified above - Because of Arizona State statute, LE agencies are required to recirculate firearms seized in criminal investigations so the potential exists that once-traced firearms are back out in the secondary market.
