Compliance. Kansas Priority 3.
Violation #3 - Knowingly engaging in a straw purchase transaction, redacted instances meets the criteria for Revocation according to the current Adverse Action Policy. Basis for ALTERNATE RECOMMENDATION : This licensee has been in business since 2006. This is his first compliance inspection since receiving his license. He is a low-volume (approx 25 transfers per year) dealer with no trace history. He conducts primarily special orders for customers he knows personally. The individual to whom the firearms were transferred stated his purpose for purchasing the firearms was so that the licensee did not "get stuck" with the special order firearms. Licensee believes this individual is still in possession of the firearms he purchased. Further, the individual who had received the "denied" status via the NICS does not appear to have any Federal prohibitors for firearms. Denial was based on a "Fugitive from Justice" due to a traffic infraction warrant. Licensee was receptive to suggestions for improving internal controls, was cooperative during the inspection, and was sincerely remorseful when he realized the seriousness of a possible straw purchase. Based on these facts, an alternate recommendation of a Warning Conference/Warning Letter with Recall Inspection is submitted.
