    I see Clytemnestra's link here explains current federal law, and this summary of S.54 explains what the new law would do without getting into excessive detail (although the details are available there).

    We demanded a plan to reduce gun violence. Now it's time to demand a vote.

      Some months ago RKBA was arguing that purchasing guns at gun shows required the same background checks as store purchased guns. Conveniently ignoring private sales, which are clearly the biggest problem. They have stopped pushing that crap. So it never made it to the GUNHO card.

        One side has stopped pushing to close the "gun show loophole" and instead wants all private sales to be regulated the same way as dealer sales.

        The other side has stopped pointing out that the gun show loophole doesn't exist.

        Your end of the Constitution is sinking.
