"It is my understanding that guns may be purchased without background checks at gun shows in many states. If that is indeed the case, I think that should be changed."

Only if it is between 2 residents of the state the gun show is in and state law does not require background checks, otherwise it has to go through a FFL.

"I believe an abused spouse would be much better served by resorting to something other than a first-time gun purchase. She (or he) is probably more likely to get killed with that gun than to effectively defend herself."

I have always been somewhat skeptical of the more likely to get killed with that gun than to effectively defend oneself argument, especially for an abused significant other. Restraining orders don't work, the police won't get there in time, which doesn't leave the abused significant other a lot of options other then hiding for the rest of his/her life.

"limiting magazines would be beneficial, but not all that beneficial"

since a great many shooters use magazines of more then 10 rounds for the more action oriented shooting sports, such as IPSC, 3 Gun, Plate shoots, you'd be infringing on the rights of a lot of shooters who haven't done anything wrong to minimal effect.
