Let's say I'm at a gun show and have a couple of firearms to sell and the gun show promoters allow this. Let's say someone I know comes along and wants to buy those guns. I can sell them without a background check. Let's say that a background check is required by law even for non FFL transactions at a gun show. I could be there with a sign saying I have guns to sell, and complete the deal at my house at a later date. Or, I could advertise in a paper or at my gun club. You cannot stop private sales without going to full registration, nation wide. That IS the ultimate goal of those barking for a closing of the gun show loophole. They know that private sales (non FFL transactions) can be done virtually anywhere, without a background check.

On ABC's This Week yesterday, Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp described President Obama's gun control proposals as "extreme."

“I think you need to put everything on the table, but what I hear from the administration -- and if the Washington Post is to be believed -- that's way -- way in extreme of what I think is necessary or even should be talked about. And it's not going to pass,” said Heitkamp.
