The inspection findings merit a warning conference for repeat violations cited from previous inspection on 01/26/2015, and the licensee has been the subject of a warning conference for similar violations. The investigator recommends an alternate recommendation of a warning letter only and no recall inspection based on the following: The licensee is a low-volume firearms dealer. Errors and omissions of the required information occurred on redacted forms out of 129 forms completed during the inspection period. The number of instances of each violation documented in the current inspection were fewer than the number of instances documented during the previous compliance inspection indicating the licensee has made some improvement. There were no unreported sales of multiple firearms and no unreported thefts or losses of firearms during the inspection period. During the inspection period, the licensee did not have any firearm traces and none of the licensee’s firearms were recovered in foreign countries. The licensee did not have any firearms missing from inventory during this inspection. The store manager, Mr. Huddleston, stated he was unaware that he is required to mark item 21 d when NICS does not respond to a delayed transaction within three business days. He stated they always wait, on a delayed transaction, until the date provided by the NICS operator to transfer the firearm if they do not receive a proceed or a denied response prior to that date. He stated he did not realize they also had to check the box “No resolution was provided within 3 business days.” The investigator discussed with the licensee’s representatives the seriousness of the violations. The licensee’s representatives indicated they would try to do a better job of reviewing the ATF Forms 4473 .
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
