ALTERNATE ADVERSE ACTION
I concur with IOI redacted that a Warning Letter and No Recall Inspection in lieu of a Warning Conference is the appropriate recommendation. The FFL was cited on ATF F 5300.5, Report of Violations for 8 violations. The inspection resulted in violations for recordkeeping and administrative errors. The violations warrant a recommendation of a warning conference due to the percentage of issues in the A&D Record compared to dispositions and failure to re-call in the NICS /FTIP inquiry after the 30 day expiration. However, due to the low physical firearm inventory and low number of ATF Forms 4473 , the percentages are greatly impacted by each individual mistake. Also, the licensee has not been inspected in approximately 12 years while doing a low volume of business over that time period. With DIO concurrence WL signed and mailed by A/S redacted on 9/25/15.
DIO Concurs with the recommendation for Warning Letter with no recall instead of a Warning Conference. It has been 12 years since the FFL 's last inspectoin. Also, The FFL is very low volume, which easily elevates to administrative action based on a very small number of errors. The FFL has no trace activity during the inspection period, and does not appear to pose a significant public safety risk.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations. This section lists the violations found in the inspection, as well as a general description of each offense. More details on the nature of the licensee's specific violations may be found in the report PDF.
