It's Called a Warning for a Reason

William Richard Scheuch was arraigned on the charge in Boise on Tuesday. According to court records, in September 2015 a federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent met with Scheuch and issued him a warning notice for dealing firearms without a license. The agent also gave Scheuch a federal firearms application. Scheuch did not submit the application.

Following that warning, Scheuch allegedly sold firearms on at least four occasions between May 2016 and May 2017, including one sale in a Boise parking lot on Aug. 26, 2016. During that incident, Scheuch allegedly sold two semi-automatic rifles for $4,800 to an undercover agent.
ATF does not always play fair, but if you get a warning not to do something that is clearly a federal crime, why would not even try to get an FFL?  A felony conviction is a lifetime firearms disqualifier.  I doubt this guy is indifferent to guns.
