Skip to comments.Kansas law change may allow even blind to carry concealed
Posted on 02/14/2011 4:26:08 AM PST by marktwain
In the state of Kansas, to carry a concealed firearm you need a gun preferably something that fits nice under your jacket, in your pocket or perhaps in your purse.
You also need a license, the states seal of approval that you can hide a firearm on your person.
Whats less clear is whether you need eyesight. It certainly is suggested, unquestionably helpful. But following a change in state law, it is no longer clear whether it is required.
Kansas legislators during the last session approved a number of changes to the states concealed carry law. One of them was that people who are renewing their license no longer have to take any sort of test to prove theyre still proficient with a firearm.
The changes also removed language from the law that gave the attorney general the right to deny applicants a license if they suffer from a physical infirmity which prevents the safe handling of a weapon.
A spokesman for Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt whose office oversees the concealed carry program conceded this week that the office is uncertain whether it has the authority to deny a concealed carry license renewal for any physical reason, even if the applicant is blind.

EEK give a blind person a gun.???
Just hope I’m not around if that person wants to fire his gun then.EEK
How/where does a blind person practice or improve their marksmanship? I don’t know of any range that would allow a blind person to use their facility.
If the left didn’t use clauses like this to deny permits to legitmate applicants, then they would not need to be removed. I would rather depend on the common sense of the blind than the common sense of a liberal bureaucrat.
How ridiculous can the LEFT get?
The LEFT assumes you have NO COMMON SENSE.
Next the LEFT will claim paraplegic, those paralyzed from the waist down and those without limbs will be able to have guns and SHOOT them too!
That cutie pie has more sense than a LIBERAL!
Another example of the old adage: “No man’s life, liberty or property are safe when the Legislature is in session.”
From the same people that put braille on the drive up ATM, I ‘spose.
no idea but I don’t want to be around when a blind person starts shooting.
It would be like the wild west again.
Near me in this town we have the FL death and blind school.
The schools has hundred of blind people.
Not sure of KS has a college like that. but
Now imagine on campus when a shot goes off and hundreds of blind people get their guns and start blazing thinking that it is their life in danger even if it is not because they can’t see what is happening.
LOL It’s totally nuts
LOL, They do. They really have braille at the ATM drive thru.
How exactly is the blind person supposed to be driving to get there? LOL
I grew up a neighbor kid who was blind. Boy, talk about being lousy at hide and go seek............
I reckon if you were a blind passenger and the driver backed in...?
A person can be “legally blind”, with vision bad enough that they can’t read documents or drive, yet still be more than capable of shooting an assailant. Keep in mind that most violent assaults occur at arms-reach distance.
“FL death and blind school.”
That’s what I first thought of when I read the headline...not fully blind people.
How could they identify their target and know who their shooting at? Over even get anything beyond a vague "He's ovah' there! I think!"
LOL so in order for the blind person to use the braille the driver would have to back in thus probably causing an accident just so the blind person can use the braille ATM.
Here we have I think the biggest campus for deaf and blind in the country so obviously I see many death and blind every day in town but I’ve never noticed the ATM’s having this but I will be looking next time .
The world has gone mad, Homosexuals and cross dressers allowed in the military basing sexauly preference for civil rights now.
Braille at the drive thru ATM
What’s next deaf people working for the NSA listening in on calls?
The world has gone mad I tell ye gone mad

The reason is that I might find myself having to fight without my glasses (either from them being knocked off at the start of the fight or being surprised while sleeping) and it's good to practice such scenarios.
