Reblog from Mr. Blunt and Cranky: Iowa is granting carry permits to the legally blind.

From the Des Moines Register:

“It seems a little strange, but the way the law reads, we can’t deny them (a permit) just based on that one thing,” said Sgt. Jana Abens, a spokeswoman for the Polk County sheriff’s office, referring to a visual disability.

Polk County officials say they’ve issued weapons permits to at least three people who can’t legally drive and were unable to read the application forms or had difficulty doing so because of visual impairments.

From Mr. B & C:

But now, blind people who cannot see what they are shooting at must have guns, too. If there is a dumber, crazier, and just generally jackass idea out there than this one, it will be surprising.

Guns for people who cannot see. Good God.

But but but…. FREEDOM! SECOND AMENDMENT! ‘MURIKA!
