While I will reserve final judgement until I can read the actual text of the proposal, I am concerned that "extending background checks to gun shows and internet sales" will entail far more than many people might envision.

With respect to gun shows, Lautenberg's S.22 provides an example of how to lock down sales at guns shows ("If any part of a firearm transaction takes place at a gun show" and "exhibits, sells, offers for sale, transfers, or exchanges").

I suspect that "internet sales" will not be limited to interstate sales as they currently exist, but will encompass any sales involving advertisement or communication over the internet, and probably other forms of electronic communication.

At least the press release says that the bill provides for "exempting temporary transfers."
