Let's issue them drivers licenses while they're at it
Bloody brilliant, eh?
So what's the problem? My CC instructor had a blind student that passed the course, which included a qualifying score for the shooting portion.
Completely blind or "legally" blind?
Eh, whatever, if you pay attention you can just step sidways a few steps
Legall blind. He had to be told where the target was. The Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA, allows this.
To me its still different than issuing a cc permit to a completely blind person. I may be wrong, but it seems like a bad idea.
This is kind of a fun issue isn't it? On the one hand, if someone was completely blind, they might shoot the wrong bad guy and be a danger to the public... on the other, if you don't allow him to excerise his Constitutional right, you are discriminating against him based solely on his disability. That kind of thing might not fly in the face of the ADA. I don't have a dog in this fight, but it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
I think training them to use stun guns would be more effective. If they can hear their assailant the electricity does'nt just wing-em.
Maybe invent a shotgun style stungun that shoots elctrodes out at a skeet pattern.
