It isn't just the Dems who are going to be playing this. According to the Washington Post blogs, GOA A+ rated Tom Coburn is negotiating with Schumer and Manchin on how to extend the background check to all sales.

Several Republican senators have shown signs of extreme squishiness when it comes to gun control. What is this fool Kirk thinking about? Last time i looked illegal gun trafficking was a federal crime: Except, of course, when its done by the federal gov't itself.

Manchin, a moderate Democrat with an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association, has also recruited his close friend, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), to help with the background check legislation. Kirk, who is much more moderate than Coburn and hails from a state suffering from urban gun violence, also plans to unveil legislation next week with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) to make illegal gun trafficking a federal crime
