legally blind

In some cases equality maybe doesn’t make much sense:

Full Story over at The DesMoines Register.

LOL his wife is reading firearm safety rules at the start “Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction” … MMMmmmhmm he goes as he is fondling the muzzle with his hand.

0:40 – “If I needed to fire this… I can hear where people are, so I just simply point and shoot” <— Hmmmmm… yea that will end well. LOL

I don’t know what the solution is here… Iowa obviously can’t give every blind person 24/7 protection by issuing each one their own police officer.  However, it seems a bit irresponsible to give someone who CAN’T SEE the power to send lead in any direction at 1000+ ft/sec just because he may have heard a sound he didn’t like and got freaked out.

What’s this so called safety training he went through?  Oh and him and his wife are going to train at the range?  Wonderful, come to think of it that might be why there are so many holes in the roof, baffles, and target hangers at the ranges I’ve been to… blind people practicing.

Blind-Concealed-Carry-GunHows this for a simple test…  6 targets get put up at the range, 5 of obvious non-threats like mom and a baby, kid with a lollypop etc.. and one target of a thug. These targets switch places every 10 seconds.  If he can distinguish the thug one and hit ANYWHERE on the target from say 10ft away 10 times out of 10 he can have his permit.  Oh is that trampling on his rights because people who have vision don’t have to do that?  *eye roll* I hope someone doesn’t comment that.   I’m pretty sure the comment section of this post is going to be troll heaven…

Thoughts?
