Is there a law that requires managers in retail that says ...

Resolved Question:

Is there a law that requires managers in retail that says they MUST be able to sell all merchandise within the store? The reason for my question is due to a manager having a felony on his record and according to law, he can not sell firearms. So is there a law that says if you are a manager and your facility sells firearms, that you must be able to sell it?

HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on Just Answer. T

I believe that the law states that the person can not PERSONALLY sell or be licensed to sell firearms. Since the manager of the store is not PERSONALLY selling the fire arms, and only acting as an agent to the licensed establishment, then the manager would be able to sell or cause to be sold, any firearm that the licensed merchant establishment sells.

The law also mentions "violent felonies" as the trigger (sorry, no pun intended) to the laws. Your best bet is to contact the Michigan State Police or the Attorney General's office for a definition of the law and how it would apply to a store manager acting ONLY as an agent to a licensed fire arms merchant.
