Hopefully this will go down.
Check it out:

Roll Call is reporting that the Senate will hold votes on nine amendments on the gun control bill today. (S.649)

Among the amendments to be considered are:

a plan to ensure that concealed-carry handgun permits issued by one state are recognized by all others,

and a plan to impose new penalties for “straw purchasers” of firearms.

All are subject to a 60-vote threshold for adoption.
