UN takes up arms trade treaty opposed by NRA
The Hill
The United Nations will once again take up an arms trade treaty that has drawn the NRA's ire amid assurances that the Obama administration is "steadfast in its commitment" to getting it done. The White House helped pull the plug on treaty talks ahead of last year's election amid heavy lobbying by the U.S. gun lobby. Now the world body is taking another shot at reaching consensus on a treaty and this time the Obama administration says it's committed to getting it done.

Hunter wins damaged lion case
IOL News
An American hunter has won compensation after the carcass of a lion he killed in South Africa was damaged during transportation, the Sunday Times reports. Dennis Danner had spent R2 million to go hunting with his 14-year-old son and son-in-law, on a private reserve near Port Elizabeth. However when their "trophies" arrived in the U.S. eight months later, parts of the two male lions' bodies had been damaged.

How to customize your Mossberg 500
Shooting Times
Joseph von Benedikt, a contributor for Shooting Time, writes: "This project was hatched during a slow afternoon sitting in a box blind over a food plot in Pike County, Ill. White Oak Reserve produces the occasional world-class whitetail buck, but none were cavorting about the stand that particular day. A stock Mossberg 500 LPA slug gun was my companion and as the slow day wore on, I found myself contemplating what would make the perfect all-around shotgun for a resident of Illinois and other states with similar slug-only hunting regulations."

Hunting in Spain: What are the rules?
Olivia Cannizzo
Our nation has been focused on gun-control issues for months now. Every year a new topic brings controversy into our communities. The U.S. decided its laws on hunting long ago. We didn't want to kill off endangered species, so we made laws to protect those animals. But laws and regulations vary in communities across the globe. In Spain, hunting is a classic pastime. The men love to go out and hunt big game, and they have been hunting for centuries. Spain has the largest variety of game in Europe, so it is an attractive destination to hunters. All throughout Spain, communities offer different hunting trips for locals.

Firearm fear mongering
Outdoor Patriot Show
The political gun grabbing agenda has swept across the country. Assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, ammunition and even basic pump shotguns have been targeted by pro-tyranny Progressives. But the seriousness of these legislative assaults pale in comparison to the psychological terror unleashed on our nation's children. For months now, public school officials and teachers have resorted to firearm fear mongering and their targets have been our children. As a result, impressionable young students — some as young as 5-years-old — are being punished with official suspensions and expulsions that go on their permanent school records and their only crime was to play with or even "mention" a fake or imaginary gun.

Colorado high-capacity mag ban might ban almost all mags
Hot Air
Colorado's now nationally famous "high capacity" magazine ban could end up being much more widespread than anticipated according to lawmakers. During a late night debate in the Colorado Senate, Sen. Kevin Lundberg, D-Berthoud, put forth the thesis that because the proposed ban includes magazines with more than 15 rounds, and those which are "readily convertible" even those manufactured for smaller numbers are most likely to fall under the ban. Most magazines are designed to be pulled apart and cleaned and are therefore readily converted to a capacity above the proposed law.
