We constructed a new X-ray (2-10 keV) luminosity function of Compton-thin active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in the local universe, using the first MAXI/GSC source catalog surveyed in the 4-10 keV band. The sample consists of 37 non-blazar AGNs at z = 0.002-0.2, whose identification is highly (>97%) complete. We confirmed the trend that the fraction of absorbed AGNs with N_H_ > 10^22^ cm^-2^ rapidly decreases against the luminosity (L_X_), from 0.73+/-0.10 at L_X_ = 10^42-43.5^ erg s^-1^ to 0.12+/-0.08 at L_X_ = 10^43.5-45.5^ erg s^-1^. The obtained luminosity function was well-fitted with a smoothly connected double power-law model whose indices are {gamma}_1_ = 0.84 (fixed) and {gamma}_2_ = 2.0+/-0.2 below and above the break luminosity, L_*_ = 10^43.3+/-0.4^ erg s^-1^, respectively. While the result of the MAXI/GSC agrees well with that of HEAO-1 at L_X_ >~ 10^43.5^ erg s^-1^, it gives a larger number density at the lower luminosity range. A comparison between our luminosity function in the 2-10 keV band and that in the 14-195 keV band obtained from the Swift/BAT survey indicates that the averaged broad-band spectra in the 2-200 keV band should depend on the luminosity, approximated by {GAMMA} ~ 1.7 for L_X_ <~ 10^44^ erg s^-1^, while {GAMMA} ~ 2.0 for L_X_ >~ 10^44^ erg s^-1^. This trend was confirmed by the correlation between the luminosities in the 2-10 keV and 14-195 keV bands in our sample. We argue that there is no contradiction in the luminosity functions between above and below 10 keV once this effect is taken into account.
