As to NICS being opened up? I dont see it for the ordinary folks who dont hold an FFL. I could honestly see there be some regulation that certain person to person sales be subject to NICS check, but that would also bring in the issue of requiring a FFL to do the transfer, since they alreay have NICS access.
That appears to be the idea. The day after the Executive Order on the matter, dealers got a letter from the ATF telling us to encourage private sellers to bring guns in for NICS checks.
Like we need that extra workload. Right now, the system is overburdened and slow. Add every private sale, and it will be crippled.
