Industry Operations Investigator redacted recommends a Warning Conference, with Warning Letter and Recall Inspection .
A/S redacted concurs with alternate recommendation of Warning Conference and Recall Inspection recommended. This licensee had two repeat violations of 478.124(a) and 478.102(a) that rise to the level of revocation. The violations occurred because the licensee stated he misunderstood the regulation requiring a background check and a separate ATF F4473 when the transfer of two firearms occurs at separate times when both firearms are listed on the same ATF F4473. In this instance, the licensee transferred a long gun to the non-licensee. When the non-licensee returned (after the waiting period to pick up the handgun), the licensee did not realize a separate ATF F 4473 and background check was required to transfer the handgun. A background check was conducted on the non-licensee and did not return any prohibiting information. These repeat violations do not appear to have been intentional but appear to be a misunderstanding of the requirements. This licensee is willing and able to comply with the regulations and is not a threat to public safety. An alternate recommendation of Warning Conference and Recall Inspection is the appropriate recommendation.
Concur with Alt Rec. While the FFL had repeat 102(a) violations, they are under different circumstances.
