Please update FLS with the correct licensed entity: “Mimi’s Mini Mart, Inc.” Please update FLS with the correct title for RP Wilma Lee Hall: “Secretary.” Violations, Warning Letter Only, and No Recall Inspection is recommended as an alternate recommendation in lieu of a Warning Conference. Current inspection results disclosed eight violations, none of which are repeat violations. Based upon these violations, a Warning Conference is warranted; however, a warning letter (no recall inspection) is recommended due to the following: (1) Violations #1, #2, #3, #4, #6 and #8 would result in a recommendation of Report of Violations only. (2) Violation #5 would result in a recommendation of Report of Violations only. A Warning Letter would be recommended for missing five or more ATF 4473 forms for transactions with non-licensees that are documented in the A&D record or other business records (e.g. pawn tickets, credit card receipts, invoices). The violation of redacted denied ATF 4473 forms not retained was not discovered using business records, but using the FFL NICS Audit Log. Also, the violations involves firearms that were not transferred to non-licensees and therefore not completed transactions. (3) Violation #7 was a failure to file multiples handgun sale reports in redacted instances which would result in a Warning Conference. The licensee was successful in reporting all multiple handgun sales which occurred on the same day. The licensee stated he was unaware that the multiple handgun sale requirement extended to five of his business days. The violation occurred due to the licensee not having correct knowledge of the requirement, not due to oversight. Therefore, now that the licensee has been instructed properly, there is a greater likelihood that the violation would not reoccur. (4) The licensee was issued a Report of Violations on 11/17/08 during the previous inspection. There were two violations listed on the ROV . Neither violation was discovered during the current inspection. This would indicate that once issues are brought to the licensee’s attention, internal controls are placed to prevent the issues from being repeated.
Concur with the assigned lOI's alternate recommendation for a warning letter due to the nature of the violations.
