Per ATF Order 5370.1 B this inspection rises to a Warning Conference. IO redacted recommends issuance of a Report of Violations, a Warning Letter and a Recall Inspection . The licensee did not record the acquisition or disposition addresses. The licensee’s acquisition section reads “From Whom Received (Name and Address or Name and License Number)"; the licensee thought this to mean the driver’s license number should be recorded (which was recorded) not an FFL number. The licensee’s disposition section reads “Address or License No. if Licensee, or form 4473 Serial No. if Forms 4473 filed numerically.” Again the licensee understood this to mean the driver’s license number should be recorded (which was recorded) not an FFL number. Due to the wording of the A&D record heading Mr. David Wright and Mr. Clint Maxey thought they were completing the record correctly. Also, Mr. David Wright informed IO redacted that they were trained incorrectly by an ex-employee.
An inspection was conducted to determine if the licensee is operating in compliance with Federal Firearms Laws and regulations. The inspection disclosed violations to include failing to maintain an accurate Acquisition and Disposition Record resulting redacted irearms reported as missing. The licensee also failed to file the Report of Multiple Sales redacted nstances. The results of the inspection rise to the level of a Warning Conference. However, the inspection disclosed that the licensee misunderstood the requirement for recording the name and address of the person from whom the firearm was received from and disposed. The licensee was advised of the proper information required in the record. The licensee was also advised of the requirement to report the multiple sales of pistols and revolvers. This is the first compliance inspection for the FFL . It is recommended that a Warning Letter be issued and a recall inspection conducted within 3 years.
After reviewing the current inspection documents and report, the nature of the violations, and the FFL history, I recommend a Warning Conference and Recall Inspection in accordance with ATF policy.
