Commercial Gun Sales Regulations
Any person who engages in the business of retail sales of pistols, guns, or firearm silencers who does not keep a register of purchasers may be charged with a misdemeanor. The register must contain the name, occupation, age, and residence of each and every single purchaser, including the identification number or other mark of the firearm. This register must be available for inspection by peace officers at all times as well.

A person who obtains a pistol in violation of the provisions of MCL 28.422 may be charged with a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of up to 90 days in jail, a fine up to $100.00, or both.
