On January 12, 2016, Senior IOI commenced a compliance inspection. The inspection involved the review of 56 ATF Forms 4473 and the verification 56 ATF Forms and the verification of 28 firearms in inventory. Senior IOI redacted examination revealed nine (9) violations. Among these violations, the licensee failed to obtain complete or accurate information on redacted of the 56 ATF Forms 4473 reviewed. Among these violations, the licensee failed to record any identification on redacted ATF Forms 4473 (17.9 % of the forms examined) and failed to have the purchaser sign/or date of the ATF Forms 4473 (10.7% of the forms examined). These violations merit a warning conference. However, Senior IOI believes a warning letter would be appropriate to ensure future compliance based on following: (1) the licensee retained photocopies of the driver’s license of the purchasers but failed to record the identification information on the forms; (2) this is the first inspection of the licensee since he obtained his FFL in 2012; and (3) the licensee was very cooperative during the inspection and expressed a willingness to comply in the future. Senior IOI redacted issued a Report of Violations and recommends the issuance of a warning letter. Senior IOI redacted also a recall inspection to ensure future compliance.
