UN passes sweeping international arms regulation viewed by some as 2nd Amendment override
The Washington Times
The United Nations General Assembly signed off on a sweeping, first-of-its-kind treaty to regulate the international arms trade, brushing aside worries from U.S. gun rights advocates that the pact could lead to a national firearms registry and disrupt the American gun market. The long-debated U.N. Arms Trade Treaty requires countries to regulate and control the export of weaponry such as battle tanks, combat vehicles and aircraft and attack helicopters, as well as parts and ammunition for such weapons. It also provides that signatories will not violate arms embargoes, international treaties regarding illicit trafficking or sell weaponry to countries for genocide, crimes against humanity or other war crimes.

Connecticut agrees to sweeping gun laws after Newtown
BBC News
Lawmakers in the state of Connecticut will vote on a sweeping set of gun restrictions, including a ban on new high-capacity magazines. The proposal requires background checks on all gun sales and expands the state's assault weapons ban. It comes as new federal gun measures appear to have stalled in Congress. Debate over U.S. gun laws was reignited after a gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children, at a Connecticut primary school in December. Tighter gun restrictions also passed in New York and Colorado in the wake of the shooting.

Calls for Colorado hunting boycott produce fear of economic losses
The Denver Post
Two words that nobody in Meeker, Colo., wants to hear are "hunting boycott." Hunting is the economic lifeblood in the seat of northwest Colorado's Rio Blanco County, home to the largest elk herd outside of Alaska. So, calls for a Colorado boycott have caught the attention of local merchants and outfitters. "It's definitely a topic of discussion in town," said Beth Willey, tourism coordinator at the Meeker Chamber of Commerce. "We get a lot of our revenue from hunting."

Nevada: Anti-bear hunting measure awaits committee hearing
Congressional Sportsman Foundation
As one of the fundamental tenants of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, science is a crucial component of our country's successful efforts to professionally manage wildlife in the public trust. Unfortunately, certain efforts at the state level seek to undermine the scientific evidence gathered by trained biologists by taking control away from state game and fish agencies and the wildlife commissioners who are entrusted to make sure we have the ability to maintain viable wildlife populations in both the near and long term.

La Sal Mountains may become home to Rocky Mountain goats
The Times-Independent
It may someday be possible to view Rocky Mountain goats treading carefully among high alpine ledges and cliffs in the La Sal Mountains near Moab, Utah. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources wants to introduce goats there, one of four places in the state where the agency's management schedule calls for adding the species. "It has the potential to enhance someone's recreational experience to be hiking and see a mountain goat," said Justin Shannon, wildlife manager for the DWR.

Trophies piling up this year
The Clarion Ledger
B. Ellis Solomon of Solomon's Taxidermy in Brandon, Miss., groomed the hair on a whitetail mount and talked about working into the wee hours of the morning making sure everything looks just right. The late hours are nothing unusual for Solomon, but the deer he is seeing this year are. Biologists had predicted that if the weather cooperated, the 2012-2013 season was going to be a banner one for large deer in Mississippi. Many based this opinion, in part, on the previous season's low harvest that was attributed to an uncommonly warm winter. That gave many bucks the chance to move up in age class. Looking at the hundreds of trophy racks in Solomon's business, it appears they were right.
