Quote:
“Every law-abiding, blind individual should be able to have whatever guns they want.” While that idea may sound shocking to some, it’s the basis of the NRA’s newest YouTube announcement.

In the NRA News episode, former US Navy Seal Dom Raso calls upon viewers to ponder the possibility of legislation allowing gun rights to apply to the visually impaired. The video introduces Raso to a heavy-metal electric guitar riff before he delves into the reasons why Americans should consider the possibility of blind citizens carrying firearms. According to Raso, those who won’t do so “don’t take [their] rights seriously enough.”


This should make OmSigDAVID happy.

Is this a case of the blind leading the blind?

@ossobuco,
Thnx for the link, Osso, but I think it's over-reaction. By the time it reaches here, it's likely to be no more than a tropical storm, unlikely to cause the kind of mayhem everyone is anticipating.

@Lustig Andrei,
That's good, and I realized later it's still far off, things change, and felt dumb for posting it here. Back to shooting while blind..

@farmerman,
Wasn't there a semi-mythic tradition about a blind Zen archer who never missed his target?

@Lustig Andrei,
Was his target always his foot?

Well, it'll introduce more randomness into the natural selection process.

I really hate to agree with ossobuco on something, but try to keep tabs on both hurricanes so that you are not caught unawares if one of them does come at you hard.

Don't arm the blind, because they can't aim, but absolutely do let the average person own the means to protect himself and his family.

I have pondered, long and hard, since the issue arose. And, I've finally concluded, what they need is nunchucks and boomerangs. The former for close combat, the latter for when the crooks have taken your money and are running away. But for cheeses sake, don't let them have a gun and accidentally harm themselves.
