Haven't seen this posted here yet. Unsubstantiated since the text hasn't been released, but it seems Universal Background Checks (UBCs) have been re-introduced recently in the House of Representatives. This bill was co-Sponsored by: Peter King (R-NY-2nd district) Elizabeth Etsy (D-CT-5th district) Patrick Meehan (R-PA-7th district) Mike Thompson (D-CA-5th district) Michael Fitzpatrick (R-PA-8th district) Bennie Thompson (D-MS-2nd district) Bob Dold (R-IL-10th district) Kathleen Rice (D-NY-4th district) H.R.1217 - To protect Second Amendment rights, ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and provide a responsible and consistent background check process. https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/1217/text http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c114:H.R.1217: The full text has not yet been received/published by the Library of Congress yet so I can't read the details. However, nice of them to call it the bill to "protect Second Amendment rights" when clearly based on that last line they mean to introduce a UBC process again. I'll try and check often and report back when the text has been published.
