An alternate recommendation from a Warning Conference to Report of Violations, WL only and no recall is recommended. NOTE TO FFLC: Ronald Sutphin requested that Responsible Person redacted be removed as a Responsible Person from the FFL . In addition, the FLS report indicates an EIN off of redacted. The EIN should be redacted.
An alternate recommendation from a Warning Conference to Report of Violations, WL only and no recall is recommended. The DIO Concurred and the WL was sent 4-06-16.
DIO concurs with WL & No Recall in lieu of WC . Although WC is warranted based on the failure to properly mark the firearms, a WL will sufficiently address the deficiency. This is the first time the licensee is in violation of 27 CFR 479.102(a)(2); the licensee did not transfer/sell any of the firearms that were improperly marked and prior to this compliance inspection, the licensee was in the process to remedy the marking requirement with ATF’s Federal Firearms Licensing Center by amending his FFL to add a trade name.
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.
