In response to the trace information provided by the Phoenix IV Intel group (see attached), conduct a full scope SWB - DE compliance inspection while evaluating for trafficking indicators. Assure compliance with current provisions of GCA . Retain hardcopies of issued ROV (if any) and/or Ack of Regs for file retention. *NOTE: Demand Letter 3 has been issued to licensee.
Field inspection performed 08/04-08/20/15; the licensee was issued a ROV for a repeat administrative violation and six recordkeeping/reporting violations (two of which are repeat violations). Although the licensee's (1.) failure to report a single multi-handgun sale, and (2.) failure to record any ID on redacted transaction collectively merit a Warning Letter and Recall by policy, it is alternatively recommended that the licensee receives the elevated Warning Conference due to his (admitted) improper completion of Section A of the ATF Form 4473 on behalf of “known" purchasers in redacted identified transactions over the 12-month inspection period. Despite having reviewed and certified the Acknowledgement of Regulations twice in the last 4 years, the licensee stated that he completed the forms in the interest in keeping the forms "neat and accurate". It should be noted however that the licensee's completion of the forms (on behalf of the purchaser) occurred at an inconsistent rate of 67% (over the course of the last 12 months). With Acting DIO concurrence, a Warning Conference was held with the licensee on 09/25/15. A WC Follow-Up Letter was generated and sent to the licensee (via certified post with return receipt) on 09/25/15; a Recall inspection was staged that same day for compliance reassessment. No further field action required at this time.
Acting DIO Rivera agrees with A/S redacted recommendation of Violations WC with WL and Recall based on the licensee's (admitted) improper completion of Section A of the ATF Form 4473 on behalf of "known" purchasers in redacted identified transactions over the 12-month inspection period.
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.
