There is some good stuff in the Toomey bill:
Quotes from Toomey's site (emphasis is mine)
The bill explicitly bans the federal government from creating a national firearms registry, and imposes serious criminal penalties (a felony with up to 15 years in prison) on any person who misuses or illegally retains firearms records.
- Fixes interstate travel laws for sportsmen who transport their firearms across state lines in a responsible manner. The term "transport" includes staying in temporary lodging overnight, stopping for food, buying fuel, vehicle maintenance, and medical treatment. Good start. "Sportsmen" needs to be replaced by "gun owners".
- Authorizes use of a state concealed carry permit instead of a background check when purchasing a firearm from a dealer. Very good
Of course, the devil is in the details.
