The rush to a bad gun-control law
The Washington Post
Those who support stricter gun control fear that the passage of time since the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School will result in further watering down of measures. They should not, however, discount the risk that attempts to shave a few weeks or months off the usual legislative process will result in bad laws, with unintended and lasting consequences.

NBBC crowns the Johnny King buck as world record typical
Outdoor Hub
The Northeast Big Buck Club has moved to recognize the "Johnny King buck" as the record typical-antlered whitetail after a panel scored it on April 13. The controversial buck was turned down for a record from the Boone and Crockett Club last year, when officials determined that the rack scored 180 typical points or 217-5/8 non-typical points. At those scores the King buck fell short of the Milo Hanson world record buck, which measured at 213-5/8 typical points. The reigning non-typical also easily trumped the contender at 333-7/8 points.

Outdoor Hub
Eddie "Flathead Ed" Wilcoxson was asleep on the fold-out cot of his 24-foot pontoon boat on April 12, when what would become a state record flathead catfish began taking drag at Bartlett Lake in Arizona. About 35 minutes later, at 2:37 a.m., Wilcoxson, 56, boated what Arizona Game and Fish Department officials verified is a 76.52-pound flathead catfish. It measured 53.5 inches in total length with a 34.75-inch girth.

Tough gun votes could end careers on Capitol Hill
National Journal
There aren't too many votes with the potential to make or break a congressional career, but the upcoming gun-control showdown on Capitol Hill is one of them. For true believers aligned with their states, red or blue, the choice is easy. The rest could face difficult questions, such as "Am I willing to lose my job over this?" and "Will I be able to live with my vote?"

Sen. Lee: Background checks could allow Holder to create gun registry
CNS News
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, took to the Senate floor and warned that universal background checks could lead to a national registry system for guns. "Some of the proposals, like for example — universal background checks — would allow the federal government to surveil law-abiding citizens who exercise their Constitutional rights. One of the provisions we expect to see in the bill based on what we saw in the Judiciary Committee — on which I sit — would allow the Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder to promulgate regulations that could lead to a national registry system for guns. Something my constituents in Utah are very concerned about, and understandably so," said Sen. Lee.

Double-barreled threat: UN Arms Trade Treaty and universal background checks
Forbes
Do those of us who are determined to defend our constitutional rights to own and bear arms really have anything to worry about? Supporters of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty argue that it doesn't really threaten the Second Amendment, but only regulates international arms trade. And as for the proposed provision for "enhanced" background checks for gun sales that is being brought before the Senate, forget about that too. It's only a "sensible measure" to keep guns out of the hands of bad guys. It has nothing to do with the rest of us. Or maybe not. Perhaps consider that these two prospective developments may have a lot to do with you and me after all. They also have more serious mischief in common than international and domestic anti-gun rights politicians would like us to realize.

African safari preparation: Taking the shot
By John McAdams
You've spent months researching, preparing mentally and physically, buying the right gear and dropping thousands of dollars to book with a highly recommended outfitter. All of that preparation boils down to one instant: taking the shot on the trophy of your dreams. The most expensive, high-quality rifle shooting the best bullets will do you no good if you do not place your shot exactly right. While African animals are by no means bulletproof, they are extremely tough, and poorly placed shots will take a long time to bring them down, if ever.
