It is a weird argument of progressives, someone is handicapped, so we must take away their Constitutional right to self defense. Handicapped people often find ingenious ways to work around their problems.
Note that this passed two years ago and there have not been any reported problems, nor have there been problems in the Constitutional carry states of Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming, or Vermont.
Moral of the story: don’t m*ess with a blind person; they may be carrying!
You can be pretty sure that blind and handicapped folks aren’t often crime *perps*. Why shouldn’t they have the means to protect themselves?
This is as it *should* be. I wonder if Texas laws are similar.
When it's dark here, I'm pretty blind. But I don't lose my God-given, Constitution affirmed right to keep and bear arms.
And I've carried arms around here when it was like stacked black cats at midnight in a coal cellar.
I’m glad to see to the Firearms Freedom Act, or whatever they are calling the in-state manufactured firearms legislation (based on Montana’s law IIRC) is back on the agenda.
As to the main topic, I recall a case in Topeka several years ago where a legally blind citizen fired a gun at his doorway when the police were executing a no-knock warrant.
I’m trying to remember how it ended up, but they wanted to fry him for agg battery on an LEO but couldn’t because it was no-knock and the blind citizen was in fear for his life as his door was being broken down...
Blind concealed carry? Why not? It was good enough for Ray Charles in the Blues Brothers.
“Handicapped people often find ingenious ways to work around their problems.”
Recommend Breaking Bad, season 4, episode 13 - Face Off.
Some things just have nothing to do with politics. This is one of them. I don’t want blind people driving cars, flying planes, carrying guns, guiding missiles....
” A little-known provision in Kansas law that allows the blind and other people with serious physical infirmities to carry concealed weapons in public places likely will not get reviewed by state lawmakers this session. “
what is to review, there it is .. deal with it
