Contact your Senators on S374 The Private Sale Ban.

Sebastian has details.

Here's some highlights:

If you left town for more than 7 days, and left your gay partner, or unrelated roommate at home with the guns, you’d be committing a felony. This should be called the “denying gun rights to gays act.” Remember that the federal government does not recognize gay marriage, even if you’re state does, thanks to DOMA. 5 years in prison.

It would be illegal to lend a gun to a friend to take shooting [or hunting]. That would be a transfer. 5 years in federal prison.

Enacts defacto universal gun registration, because of record keeping requirements.

Oh and heaven help you if your loose a gun on a hunting trip or your house gets broken into while you're on vacation.  That violates the 24 hour reporting rule and you'll go to prison.

As Sebastian notes:

This bill has nothing to do with ensuring people who are getting guns are law-abiding, and everything to do with getting backdoor registration, and creating a patchwork of rules and laws that will land anyone who uses guns, and isn’t a lawyer, in federal prison for a long time. Lots of otherwise law-abiding people are going to federal prison if this ends up passing, and I’m convinced that’s the whole idea.

Call and write your Senators.  Tell them to Vote No.
