In Iowa if you are legally blind you can now own a gun and carry it in public.
"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.
Explains Delaware County Sheriff John LeClere, "If you see nothing but a blurry mass in front of you, then I would say you probably shouldn't be shooting something.”
As David Sedaris wrote about this very subject in Six to Eight Black Men.....
Okay, there's only a line or two about blind hunters, but I'll use any excuse to post this.
