You should make sure you know what is being proposed before you agree to it.

The administration is not proposing background checks only for sales of guns, but for 'transfers' of guns - including temporary transfers of possession. This is the same type of provision that is in H.R.21 ("temporary transfer of possession without transfer of title").

From the President's Gun Violence Plan:

Congress should pass legislation that goes beyond just closing the “gun show loophole” to require background checks for all firearm sales, with limited, common-sense exceptions for cases like certain transfers between family members and temporary transfers for hunting and sporting purposes.
