The licensee was subject to a recall compliance inspection May 3, 2016 through June 15, 2016. As a result of the inspection the licensee was cited for 10 violations, eight of which were repeat violations. Specifically, the licensee was cited for violating 27 CFR 478.128(c) -The licensee knowingly made false statements with respect to the information required bv the provisions of the Gun Control Act . In redacted sposition entries the licensee knowingly recorded a false address for the transferee. In alredacted stances the transfer was to the sole Managing Member of the license, Mr. Brian Kovacs. Mr. Kovacs recorded his P.O. Box address rather than his actual residence address for the transfer oredactedearms. Additionally, the licensee was cited for violating 27 CFR 478.128(b) - The licensee knowingly made false statements with respect to the information required by the provision of the Gun Control Act by recording false information in Section A of the ATF Form 4473 redacted nstances. During the previous inspection in July 2014, the licensee was cited for recording his P.O. Box address in the disposition of the A&D Record. Following the 2014 inspection, Mr. Kovacs attended a Warning Conference in which he stated that he would no longer record his P.O. Box address as his personal residence address. The licensee was also counseled on the use of his P.O. Box address as his personal residence address during the 2012 qualification inspection and the 2014 qualification for a Type 08 FFL . Due to the licensee’s repeated falsification of the A&D Record and knowingly falsifying ATF Forms 4473, I concur with the Investigator and Area Supervisor’s recommendation of Revocation.
