Failing to dot your i’s: Not a crime

Good:

A federal judge decided Tuesday that Jim?s Gun Jobbery of Fayetteville and the Jim?s store in Wilmington can keep their licenses to sell firearms.

Jim?s Gun Jobbery in Fayetteville and Jim?s Pawn & Gun in Wilmington sometimes violated regulations requiring dealers to closely track their inventory, U.S. District Judge Malcolm J. Howard said in his ruling. But he decided the violations were unintentional and made up only a tiny percentage of the stores? sales since Jim Faircloth went into business in 1977.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has been trying since 2005 to revoke the licenses of Jim?s, said to be the largest gun dealer in North Carolina. The ATF said the stores repeatedly lost track of guns in their inventory over an eight-year period and had not resolved the problem despite repeated warnings.

Good for the judge. This has been a pattern with ATF for a bit, shutting down dealers for clerical errors that comprised a minuscule percentage of transactions. Meanwhile, ATF can’t keep track of it’s own guns.

    Has BATF found those 76 guns that are missing from THEIR inventory and/or the hundreds of missing laptops yet?
