The Best .350 Legend Rifles Put to the Test

The .350 Legend is a cartridge that’s designed for whitetail hunters—specifically those in states that only allow the use of straight-wall rifle cartridges in a deer rifle. It was released in 2019 by Winchester, and although singularly purposed, it’s been well-received. The .350 Legend has found popularity even in states like Kentucky that don’t require straight-wall cartridges—something I found out on a recent trip to the Bluegrass State. Because of the Legend’s increasing popularity, we felt it was our duty to put some of the best .350 Legend rifles through extensive testing, so you know exactly what you’re getting.

Oregon voters appear poised to pass a new gun control measure, but Linn County Sheriff Michelle Duncan has already pledged not to enforce at least part of the new law.

Measure 114 would ban magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds and require a police-issued, five-year permit for all gun purchases. The permitting process would include firearms training and a federal background check.

With critical issues like decades-high inflation and skyrocketing fuel prices under the Biden administration capturing much of the campaign emphasis, guns weren’t really a central issue in the midterm election; however, one of the few candidates who made his anti-gun ambitions a highlighted part of his campaign was roundly defeated, once again.

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D) kept his goal of not only banning the sale of the most common semi-automatic rifles, but also confiscating them from lawful Americans, front and center in his Texas gubernatorial campaign.

Guns were on the ballot in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

The hot-button issue drove ballot measures in a couple of states, and seven gun-reform candidates were elected in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland and Minnesota, according to a report on the unofficial election results by Chip Brownlee of The Trace, the only U.S. newsroom exclusively covering gun violence.

According to the White House transcription and a report in Business Insider, the sometimes cocky Biden reminded reporters about some of his “achievements” so far, including the gun control legislation he signed in June.
“We didn’t ban assault weapons,” he said. “I’m going to ban assault weapons.”

Biden gave a strong hint he will build on the gun control package from June.
 

Can You Shoot 9mm NATO In A 9mm Luger?

You can shoot 9mm NATO in a 9mm Luger, but there may be some issues with feeding and ejection. The 9mm NATO round is a bit longer than the 9mm Luger, so it may not fit properly in the chamber. Additionally, the 9mm NATO round has a higher pressure than the 9mm Luger, so it may cause problems with feeding and ejection.

While the news out of Oregon isn’t good, Iowa voters administered a firm slap to the face of gun control organizations in Tuesday’s election. By a 2 to 1 margin they voted to safeguard the right to keep and bear arms, designating it “a fundamental individual right.”

Hawkeye State voters approved a proposed amendment to the Iowa State Constitution that not only reaffirms the federal Second Amendment, it also establishes that any gun control laws shall be viewed with strict scrutiny by Iowa courts.

Kurpiers said Shabazz was relieved by the verdict.

“Obviously, we are very sympathetic that this young man lost his life,” Kurpiers said. “We have no idea why he acted the way he did that night and attacked my client. But my client had a right to defend himself and he did. And the jury agreed.”

His administration nevertheless defends the federal ban on gun possession by marijuana users, arguing that Second Amendment rights are limited to “law-abiding citizens.”

Last week, a federal judge agreed, dismissing a challenge to that rule by medical marijuana patients in Florida. The reasoning underlying that decision shows that the constitutional right to armed self-defense, which the Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld, is still subject to legislators’ arbitrary whims.

Ginther said they are also considering red flag laws, and exploring options for restricting certain rifles, such as AR-15s.

"Assault-style weapons are weapons of war. They are not for personal safety or sport. You don't need an AR-15 to protect yourself, your home and your family," he said.

State Rifle & Pistol Ass'n v. Bruen. The Court didn't issue an opinion, but Justice David Viviano had an interesting concurrence:

GRNC says McFadden appears to be using mental health records requests to delay permit issuance.

“In apparent defiance of the consent order binding him as the result of our last lawsuit, Sheriff Garry McFadden continues to delay concealed handgun permits up to a year despite a law stipulating permits be issued in 45 days,” GRNC President Paul Valone said in a statement. “Because none of the other 99 North Carolina counties are experiencing similar delays, we have concluded that McFadden appears to be flooding the Veterans Administration with requests for mental health records even for applicants who never served in the military.”

But in fact, legislators have placed limits on numerous so-called personal freedoms in the name of public safety. We pass through mandatory security checks in airports and government buildings. We’re required to wear seat belts on airplanes, cars and rollercoasters.

Is it too much to ask that firearms be treated in the same, nuanced manner as motorized vehicles? That there be one set of rules for owning and carrying a handgun; another for purchasing a semiautomatic, assault-style rifle; and a third for how much ammo a single clip may hold?

To draw a contrast with Boebert’s antics, Frisch campaigned as a moderate who would keep a lower profile and work with both Democrats and Republicans. He said he hoped to join the Problem Solvers Caucus, which consists of members of both parties seeking common ground. He earned the endorsement of Boebert’s Republican primary opponent. His campaign video proclaimed him “a conservative businessman” who supports the Second Amendment, securing the border, and reducing government regulation, complete with shots of a man in camouflage toting a rifle and a patrol car driving by the border wall.

Penn, a nurse from Cache County, Utah, decided to jump into politics in response to coronavirus mandates and lockdowns that she describes on her campaign website as “unconstitutional.”

Her political beliefs and priorities are fairly typical for a more conservative Republican candidate.

She wants limited government and lower taxes. She wants to preserve Second Amendment and parental rights. She’s for voter identification requirements and against crossover voting, which she thinks “needs to be thrown out of Wyoming.” While Penn supports medical freedom, she’s also “100% pro-life” and advocates for the punishment of “medical practitioners who intentionally violate the unborn’s right to life.”

Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has received a blue tick verification badge on Twitter after signing up to Elon Musk's new $8 service.

The 19-year-old, who was acquitted on murder charges last year after fatally shooting two men during the 2020 BLM protests, said he has been trying to be verified on the site for months.

The teenager announced the news with a screenshot of his new blue checkmark, tweeting: 'Uh-oh. Thank you @elonmusk.'

He then added: 'The comments from BIG MAD haters are pure gold.

'You must not have noticed the blue checkmark. I'm elite now!'

That challenge has now failed. A federal district judge dismissed Fried’s Constitutional challenge to the law. Judge Allen Winsor cited that just because federal authorities do not enforce marijuana prohibition, the drug still remains illegal under federal law.

“Regardless of whether plaintiffs are prosecuted (or whether Congress allocates funds for their prosecution), possession of marijuana remains a federal crime,” Judge Winsor wrote in his 22-page decision. “The Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment at best precludes prosecution now; it does not forever bless plaintiffs’ actions.”

El Paso police stated it and other law enforcement agencies were aware of the man.

"There is nothing illegal about this. Unless he presents a threat, by his actions beyond that, there is no need to report him," stated a tweet from El Paso Police Department.

Minutes after the police department's initial statement about the man, they stated, "That is why we are posting this information to reassure the public, that we are monitoring the situation."

IN AMERICA, people have the right to defend themselves under the constitution.

While it might be a constitutional right, the laws vary from state to state, which is why members of Congress have passed several pieces of legislation, including the Stand Your Ground law.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
