The same people who do it now but no waiting on the phone.
The difference is that on the phone, a human operator has verified that I'm an FFL, and they're monitoring the entire transaction. The operator runs the actual check, not me. Or Joe Blow, whose buddy who used to work at a gun shop who gave him the password.

Have there been cases of stolen identity traced back to a 4473?
Not that I know of, but the possibility is there. My point is that the system is already intrusive and I know enough about computer security to know how unsecure most data is. I'd want very strict controls on who has access to that stuff.

On an related note, Wayne LaPierre will be speaking to the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow. I'll post more as it comes out.
