The Manchin-Toomey "Background Checks" Deal

I've collected a lot of links from a bunch of gun bloggers I respect on this Toomey/Manchin deal.  No time just now to comment on them; I thought I'd go ahead and get them out there, and then as I have
time this evening, re-organize and comment on this huge list.   Be sure to re-load this evening and tomorrow for updates.

FreedomOutpost: Toomey-Manchin Sellout Bill Is Worse Than Feinstein Gun Ban

We don't have the text of this bill.  All we really have is the posturing press conference (USA Today: Senators reach deal on gun background checks) and a press release from Toomey's office, which Stranger up yonder at Extrano's Alley takes a look at:

The Silicon Graybeard: The Toomey-Manchin Deal and Be Careful What You Wish For

According to the Graybeard, the main points of the deal appear to be this:
  1. All internet ]or internet-advertised] sales must go thru FFL;
  2. All Gun Show sales must go thru FFL;
  3. Private sales remain private;
  4. No Dianne Feinstein AWB or Hi Cap mag BS attached to the bill;
  5. Federal funding to improve the NCIS system or studies of violence or something.
