Despite resistance in Congress, White House continues gun law push
CBS News
President Barack Obama heads to Denver, forging ahead with his effort to get Congress to pass stricter gun control laws and will hold up Colorado as an example of what he wants to see lawmakers in Washington accomplish. Colorado has gone farther than any state outside the northeast in passing new gun laws. The state now prohibits the sale of magazines that hold more than 15 bullets and requires background checks for all private gun sales. Democrats passed the laws over strong Republican objections. Democrats said they were reacting to last year's massacres at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

UN passes sweeping international arms regulation viewed by some as Second 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.

Gun poll: Most say background checks may bring confiscation
The Hill
A plurality of Americans believe the federal government could use information gleaned from expanded background checks to confiscate legally-owned firearms, according to a Quinnipiac survey. But the poll also showed support for background checks remains nearly universal. According to the survey, 48 percent said they believed the government could use background check records to guns, while 38 said the government could not. Ninety-one percent favored background checks anyway, and only 8 percent are opposed.

Obama's continued use of the claim that 40 percent of gun sales lack background checks
The Washington Post
There are two key problems with the president's use of this statistic: The numbers are about two decades old, yet he acts as if they are fresh and he refers to "purchases" or "sales" when in fact the original report concerned "gun acquisitions" and "transactions." Those are much broader categories of data. As we noted before, the White House said the figure comes from a 1997 Institute of Justice report, written by Philip Cook of Duke University and Jens Ludwig of the University of Chicago.

The Washington Post

Second Amendment crumbling as gun-control victories spread
The Hill
The Second Amendment got attacked from three sides, leaving gun owners scrambling to find safe ground. While President Obama has lost momentum for federal gun control laws, he has picked up victories with his allies in blue states and at the United Nations. After recent laws passed Connecticut should consider changing its state nickname from the "Constitution State" to the "Unconstitutional State" after Gov. Dannel Malloy signed an extremely restrictive gun control law. The bill passed the state House and the Senate recently.

How manufacturers are dealing with the ammo shortage
Guns & Ammo
The gun-owning American public has seen and been through panic buying before, but never on a level compared to what we are seeing now. At SHOT Show last January, we asked all the black rifle makers if they had any product beyond what was being displayed on the walls of their booths. Their response? No. I also asked ammunition makers if they had any ammunition left on the shelves. "Sure," Steve Hornady told me with a laugh. "I've got .470 and .500 Nitro."
