Recommend business hours be updated in FLS to Monday-Friday, 10 am to 7 pm and Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm. Alternate recommendation : Report of Violations only, no recall inspection Pursuant to ATF O 5730.1B the recommendation based on the findings of this inspection would result in a Report of Violations only for violations of 27 CFR 478.125(e) ( A&D errors) and 27 CFR 478.124(c)(1) (certification of the ATF F 4473 ). The only violation elevated higher than a Report of Violations was for a violation of 27 CFR 478.126a (non-reporting of Multiple Sales of Handguns) on redacted occasions. The licensee was also cited for this violation during the 2009 inspection (redacted unreported) and was sent a Warning Letter. Due to the licensee receiving a Warning Letter for the same/similar repeated violation, the recommendation for this inspection would equate to a Warning Conference and not a Revocation recommendation as this Warning Conference would not have been within 5 years for a Warning Conference for repeated similar violation. [Note the licensee attended a Warning Conferences in 2013 and 2014 but had not been cited for a 27 CFR 478.126a violation.] SIOI redacted is recommending only a Report of Violations be issued for the inspection based on the following: 1. Only one violation would equate to a recommendation higher than an issuance of Report of Violation only [126a for redacted instances is a Warning Letter.] 2. The licensee had not been cited a 126a violation since the 2009 inspection. 3. The licensee and both employees stated that they were instructed by an ATF IOI that the report of multiple handgun sales was prepared on a weekly based and stated over every Monday. The licensee and the employees all stated that until they were told this they had filed their multiple sales accurately after the 2009 citation. 4. All redacted unreported multiple sales were for transactions that took place between two weeks: redacted 5. The number of instances of the other violations cited has lessen from the number cited during both the 2013 and 2014 inspections. 6. No theft or loss of the firearms were reported as a result of this inspection or prior to the inspection and all traces since the last inspection were successful. Based on these items, SIOI redacted recommends an issuance of the Report of Violations only is an appropriate recommendation based on her findings.
Ulpon review: DIO and AS concurrence on a WL with recall .
Only one violation triggers administrative action under ATF O 5370.1 B; the redacted unreported multiple sales require a warning letter but since this violation resulted in a previous warning letter, a warning conference is now due. Given the amount of time since the predecessor multiple sale violation (7 years), the immediate correction of this violation, and the absence of any required administrative action from the other violations cited, I recommend a warning letter with recall inspection as the most appropriate outcome for this inspection.
