Nifty bill to be introduced into congress

Basically, under this law, I (a resident of Rhode Island) can go to gun shows with my Father In Law (a resident of New York) in New York and buy guns there without having to pay extra to have them shipped to a dealer in RI + the RI dealer's FFL transfer fee.

I guess the basic idea is that the interstate ban was enacted before the background checks. Since we have that fancy federal instant check system (good or bad), we no longer have to have background checks done at the state level. So, why is this old ban still applied?
