Obama set to unveil curbs on gun sellers - POLITICO

According to gun industry insiders and others familiar with the proposals, the changes include requiring an expanded number of small-scale gun sellers to be licensed — and therefore conduct background checks — whenever selling a weapon. This wouldn’t close the so-called gun show loophole, though it has the potential to narrow it.

The administration is also expected to impose tighter rules for reporting guns that get lost or stolen on their way to a buyer.

This makes political sense. It's essentially nothing but the hype in the runup to it bought Obama a few weeks' respite from media scrutiny of his disastrous record.
