This bill seeks to give the Attorney General authority to deny the transfer of firearms to anyone suspected of being a terrorist. It also removes any responsibility on the AG's part to justify his actions:

If receipt of a firearms by the person would violate section 922(g)(10), any information which the Attorney General relied on for this determination may be withheld from the applicant if the Attorney General determines that disclosure of the information would likely compromise national security.

Here are the co-sponsors, which is a list I'm used to seeing:

Rep Castle, Michael N. [DE]
Rep Kirk, Mark Steven [IL-10]
Rep McCarthy, Carolyn [NY-4]
Rep Moran, James P. [VA-8]
Rep Rangel, Charles B. [NY-15]
Rep Smith, Christopher H. [NJ-4]

Worth keeping an eye on.

I can't believe that none of our reps from CA didn't co-sponsor it.

Giving Eric Holder "discretion" on anything is the worst thing this country could do, particularly anything to do with the 2A. stay safe

The timing of this is interesting, coming hot on the heels of DHS "studies" which characterize basically anyone who didn't vote for Obama as a likely terrorist.
