Warning Conference conducted in FY 2011. Conduct Recall DE inspection.
Federal Licensing System (FLS) was reviewed with the following changes made: 1. The EIN number redacted was added.
JUSTIFICATION: The inspection meets the standard for Revocation under the Adverse Action Policy. The licensee was cited fo redacted instances of falsifying disposition entries in the required A&D record. Revocation at Sec. 6.e.(f). The licensee redacted incorrect open dispositions in the A&D record. He was instructed to correct the entries prior to the IOIs' return to the premises by either providing the firearm, providing the corresponding F4473, or by showing where the firearms had been moved forward to a new A&D record. The licensee was given several weeks to complete this task, but neglected to finish the assigned corrections prior to the Ids’ return. IOI redacted reports that when she requested the corresponding F4473s so the IOIs could reconcile the records on his behalf, the licensee made excuses about having to find them in an upstairs room. He eventually complied with the request. The F4473s ultimately confirmed the licensee had made false entries in the record. The licensee's reluctance in using the forms when first instructed to correct the record and again when asked to retrieve them for the ids to complete the task, supports the assertion of willfulness in that the licensee was plainly indifferent about correcting the A&D record with accurate information. The licensee was also cited for failure to maintain the A&D record redacted instances (169% error rate), a repeat violation addressed during a 2010 Warning Conference (Warning Conference at Sec. 6.d.(1) & (2)); and for failure to properly complete the Form 4473 - instances do not rise to the level of adverse action. After the inspection closed, the licensee found redacted firearms initially reported lost during the inspection. NOTE: Upon being questioned about the false entries, IOI redacted reports the licensee became very belligerent and hostile, stepping very close, and shaking his finger in IOI redacted face, bellowing that she should do her job and stop messing with him.
