So I don't understand 'it's gonna close the gun show loophole but protect and not prevent private sales.'
???
How's that work? I thought the private sales at gun shows was the loophole?
No more private sales at gun shows, or what?

The devil is going to be in the details when the next version comes out but I completely agree it really makes no sense at all.

We already have background checks for any sale through an FFL, whether they are at a show or in their store. Most states also require ALL handgun sales to go through a background check even if it's a private sale. Also federal law requires ANY gun being shipped from state to state go to an FFL where the person receiving it has to go through a background check.

'Long gun' sales are excluded in many state when it's a face to face sale and a few (very few) allow handgun sales to happen with a check in private sales.

The law (as usual) is a lot of smoke and mirrors as it stands right now, basically regulating something that is already regulated. Now what they add to it during the debate is the scary part.

BTW, here the existing laws per state on private transfers: Private Firearm Transfer Laws - American Gun Owners Alliance

With any luck it is a "non event" and appeases some progressives and they move on to some other nanny issue. In my experience however, the little bit of blood in the water just excites the sharks more though.

So I had the time to read this Toomey-Manchin amendment today, this so-called compromise?

Yeah right!

No private sales (except to family) without a background check.

$100,000 a year to try and persuade states to report properly (an update to the never completely funded 2007 NICS improvement act)

And a new commission to determine the definition of mentally incompetent as well as to study mass violence.

Compromise my butt!
