The firearms retailer keeps the paperwork and does not forward it to state, county, or city authorities. I think the police would need a warrant before they could look into the retailer's records - it's certainly not anything that the cops can do routinely.

Sales taxes from firearms are going to be paid on a monthly or quarterly basis based on the aggregate sales. So the state might know that Gloria's Guns sold $150,000 worth of merchandise in January, but probably doesn't even know the mix of pistols, shotguns, and rifles, much less the individual number of pistols sold or who they were sold to.
