A Report of Violations was issued and a Warning Letter and No Recall Inspection are recommended in lieu of a Warning Conference and Recall Inspection. Current inspection results disclosed six violations, none of which are repeat violations. The failure to conduct a NICS check in redacted instance warrants a Warning Conference, however a warning letter and no recall inspection are recommended due to the following: (1) Review of the ATF F 4473s disclosed errors on only redacted of the 628 forms reviewed, an error rate of less than 1%; (2) The violations disclosed during the inspection would normally warrant a recommendation of a warning letter, with the exception of redacted instance in Violation 4 involving the failure to conduct a NICS check on an individual (non-law enforcement) which would warrant a warning conference. In this redacted instance, an employee thought it had performed a NICS check and attached the wrong NICS results to the ATF F 4473. There is evidence the employee knew and attempted to follow NICS requirements but made a common mistake by not reexamining the ATF F 4473 and printed NICS material prior to transferring the firearm. A subsequent background check during this inspection found that the individual was not prohibited; (3) The Licensee has already begun implementing strategies to avoid repeating violations disclosed during this inspection. Specifically, the Licensee has replaced its double-check of firearms information with a triple-check in which employees are required to check firearms information at the time of pawn-pick up, at the point of sale and at the time of pull (during inventory checks). This triple-check should be useful in avoiding the entry of incorrect serial numbers as disclosed in Violation #1. Also, because the Licensee could not determine if redacted irearms transactions involved gifting of firearms in Violation #2, the Licensee will begin to offer gift certificates in instances where a buyer/transferee indicates he/she may be gifting the firearm to someone. Further, the Licensee is proactively addressing all of the violations disclosed during this inspection, including involving IOI redacted in a manager meeting to review the violations so that managers could pass on the information to employees at the various Pawn USA locations in the area (see Section 11 - Other). Note: redacted DOB: redacted needs to be removed as an RP from FLS. Also, on July 1, 2015, three-part stakeholdership transferred from RP Janet Monterose, RP David L. Jones (son), and RP redacted (father) to two-part stakeholdership by Ms . Monterose and Mr. Jones (son).
