Pretty much nothing.  As always.

Shoot someone's eye out?

Knew a blind guy who loved black powder shooting. It's the whole ritual plus the sound and smell.

And there really weren't any Zombies left when he came back from the range.

I realize that I, as a Canadian, may miss out on some of the subtleties of American life but nevertheless I am moved to ask -- what the f*ck?

I CAN'T SEE A PROBLEM.

They lose the permits?
 
2013-09-08 09:36:09 AM
A permit?  To carry a gun?

When did that start?
 
2013-09-08 09:37:17 AM
Look at the bright side. OK that's not the best way to put it...

First you decide if you want people with disabilities to have the same rights as those that do not. Then you behave in accordance to that belief.
YES= STFU & GBTW
NO= Voice your opposition to this and lobby for a change in law

why shouldn't a blind person have a gun in their home for protection from armed intruders
 
2013-09-08 09:45:38 AM
They also have braille on the drive thru ATM's.
 
2013-09-08 09:46:32 AM
Simple - all blind people who are members of a well armed militia should be allowed to bear arms.
 
2013-09-08 09:46:45 AM
That's nice, considering how they already *had* the right. Or have we formally abandoned the Constitution now? I wasn't paying attention.

//Not saying I want to share an apartment with a blind gun owner, either. Though it would be pretty easy to hide them from him.

next they'll be on the golf courses.  this must stop NOW!

Florida has CCWs too.

My father in laws dad has little to no eyesight left. Doesn't stop him from buying handguns though. Or driving. Its going to come down to us sabotaging his stuff in order to stop him.

You wanna hear something really crazy... My state doesn't even require a permit to own a gun! Holy shiat!

I once shot a man just to watch him die.

But I missed because I was blind.

permitts are for handguns any one at any age can own a long gunas long as it is not fully auto or you are a felon
 
2013-09-08 10:13:47 AM
Because if they denied them they would get a civil suit vor violating ADA.

As a Vermonter, permits are for hunting, not gun ownership.
 
2013-09-08 10:14:50 AM
The way to fix that is to require proficiency in hitting a target before issuing a permit.

That will go over well. FFS, they should offer civilian sharpshooter certifications. Get a special license plate with your CCW.
 
2013-09-08 10:15:27 AM
Well, firing off ye ol' man-cannon is why I am blind in the first place so. . .

2013-09-08 10:15:51 AM
Blind people have the same right as anyone else to shoot their families and then themselves after a barricade situation.
 
2013-09-08 10:16:15 AM
As long as they aren't permitting marijuana, then I'm fine with it.

over a year ago my 82 yr old batshiat crazy wheelchair bound mom crashed her car onto someones lawn when she was having seizures, cannot walk and requires 24 hr/day assistance. she is fully bound and determined to drive again, ignoring mentions of the probability of her killing someone, angry at the world and taking it out on family because she has lost her independence.

They give driver's licenses to women, don't they?

 I think there is a metaphor that covers this situation.

He's already killed a horse with his truck. It wasn't his fault because it came out of nowhere, apparently.

Then you walk right back into that old hornets nest if gun ownership should really be a privilege with implied responsibilities attached instead of a right. Fuuuuun times.

I'd rather have a blind person shooting at me than someone who can see shooting at me. What's the problem?

In other news, you can be legally blind due to any number of factors, including significant loss of peripheral vision.

I'd imagine that having only 10 degrees or so of sight would make you need a cane, even if you had birdlike vision inside that little tiny cone.

Fine. Hit the target without hitting anything else, and you can have it.

The law wasn't very firm: it
didn't take away my permit

One of my favorite stores is of someone who was taking his marksmanship test for his CCW, shot a beautiful grouping, then picked up his cane and tap-tap-tapped away...

"Iowa grants gun permits to the blind." What could possibly go wrong?

Well why not? The deaf and dumb-arse already have permits.

Wow, I didn't see THAT coming...
