lOI redacted recommends the revocation of the FFL . The licensee discontinued using an official Acquisition and Disposition record that met ATF regulations, which hinders the traceability of firearms. The licensee was cited for new and multiple repeat violations of the Gun Control Act and National Firearms Acts: 27 CFR 478.21(a) Forms Prescribed 27 CFR 478.124(c)(1) Firearms Transaction record 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(i) Firearms Transaction record 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(iv) Firearms transaction record 27 CFR 478.124(c)(4) Firearms transaction record 27 CFR 478.124(c)(5) Firearms transaction record 27 CFR 478.102(c) Sales or deliveries of firearms on or after Nov 30th, 1998, 27 CFR 478.126a, Reporting multiple sales or other dispositions of pistols and revolvers 27 CFR 478.99(a), Certain prohibited sales or deliveries 27 CFR 478.123(a), Records maintained by manufacturers 27 CFR 478.123(d), Records maintained by manufacturers 27 CFR 478.92(a)(1), Markings for gun control act firearms 27 CFR 478.103(a), Posting of signs and written notification to purchasers of handguns 27 CFR 479.103, Registration of firearms manufactured (Markings for NFA Firearms) 27 CFR 479.102(a)(2) Registration and identification of NFA firearms
A Recall Compliance inspection was conducted which resulted in citing 15 violations. The most sever violation was that the licensee was not maintaining a bound book . As a result, this licensee is unable to properly conduct traces of firearms. This license has a history of violations. I recommend revocation of this FFL .
A revocation hearing was held on November 14th, 2017. Fifteen violations were cited, including seven repeat violations from two previous inspection. The hearing provided additional information from the licensee, specifically from Andrew Alaniz, Vice President/ Responsible Person of Spectyr Industries Corporation. Incorporating this new information, it is believed the violations do not rise to the level of revocation. While the licensee’s recordkeeping was sloppy and traceability was effected, the licensee’s records and maintenance of 4473s would allow for traceability to be completed. A second background check of persons again indicated that firearms were not transferred to prohibited person. Again, while the records were ineptly maintained, there is no proof that firearms were missing. For the aforementioned reasons, I recommend the hearing be considering a DIO Warning Conference and a Recall inspection be initiated in a timely manner.
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.
