Iowa Issues Gun Permits To The Blind

Quote:
In a move sure to leave gun safety advocates scratching their heads, Iowa is issuing gun permits to the blind.

The permits allow legally blind applicants to purchase weapons and carry them in public. Per state law, any attempt to deny an Iowan these rights based on physical ability would be illegal, reports the Des Moines Register.

"When you shoot a gun, you take it out and point and shoot, and I don't necessarily think eyesight is necessary," said Michael Barber, a blind man interviewed by The Register at a gun store in Iowa last month.

How about...I dunno...the ability to actually SEE WHAT THE FUCK YOU ARE SHOOTING AT?

Saying that atheists hate God is like saying that teetotalers are alcoholics.

You have that right in front of you. As for me, go right ahead and own all the guns and ammo you want PROVIDED you are a law-abiding, mentally balanced adult.

That's fine until said sane and law abiding gun owner has a bad day at school or the post office, and decides to act on the Biblical teaching, "Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord...."
Actually, it would be better if ONLY the blind were allowed to have guns. When they go Postal, less chance of them actually hitting their targets!

Why stop there? I don't see why blind people can't also drive.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Holy smokesters! I'm not sure how that works out. I hope they will be making some gas-recoil 12 gauge shot guns with 8-inch barrels, so that each square centimeter of the opposing wall gets at least one pellet.

Who is there? Who is there?

BOOM!
