The violations disclosed merit consideration of a Warning Conference due to the nature of the violations and the statistical volume of violations. Licensee was cited for failing to record complete identification information on the ATF Forms 4473 . However, the licensee had been making a photo copy of the valid identification and inserting the respective photo copy in corresponding ATF F4473. Additionally, the licensee was cited for failing to record NICS information on the ATF F4473. However, the licensee had been conducting NICS e-checks, and was inserting the printed copy of the NICS response into the corresponding ATF F4473. The licensee was provided with remedial instruction. Due to the low volume of non-licensee transfers, IOI redacted believes that the violations disclosed merit an alternate recommendation of a Warning Letter and No Recall Inspection . The licensee is a holder of a Type 07 Manufacturing FFL and will be inspected in five years.
I concur with the alternate recommendation of of Viols , WL Only and No Recall Inspection due to the nature of the violations, the fact that corrective information was maintained and the ease of correction going forward. WL sent 4/11/2016.
