    Hitting a target is not the question. Hitting the correct target is my concern.
    Put two targets next to each other at 15 yards, the perpertrator is wearing a head band, and has a micro .380 in his palm, the other is not, can a legally blind shooter identify the perp?
    What if your wife were standing 5 feet behind and to the left of the intended target, would a blind shooter aim for the correct target?
    In many cases, the intended target is not the only person within range.
    I know if I was erroneously targeted by a blind shooter, and survived the encounter, I would own the blind mans house, his car, and his first born child after my attorney got through.
    The correct terms are "gross negligence" and "complete disregard".
    So, you believe a physical impairment should nullify a God given right. Did I get that right?

    It is a yes or no answer. No bloviating, just answer please.

    You're inventing scenarios to justify your prejudice. You do understand that legally blind people might still retain their judgement and decision making skills, right?

    EVERYONE has the right to defend themselves.You are trying to go out of your way to discriminate against a person with a disability.

    I'm legally blind according to the state of Texas. Care to come shoot against me?

    You're one of those that believes in the 2nd Amendment except for people with a disability.

    Legally blind and BLIND are NOT the same thing. You can have very good eyesight and still be legally blind. Now that my wife has had surgery, she doesn't need glasses most of the time and not nearly as strong. But because she has virtually no peripheral vision she is legally blind. She has about a 4 foot field of vision at 20 feet. She can more than distinguish a target at that distance. And shoots very well for someone that rarely does.

    Fair question, what disabilities should disqualify someone from having the tools to defend themselves because you are scared? At what point should they be disqualified?
    Think real hard on that. If your fear disqualifies others, then other's fear gets to disqualify....you. As in your irrational fear of legally blind persons may cause you to make irrational decisions with your firearms so you can't be trusted.......
    Slippery slope and all that crap. Think about it.
    It's much like I told my son about driving. You have three choices;
    1. You have to have a certain amount of trust that everone else on the road will use a certain amount of skill and responsibility to drive corectly and not do something stupid.
    2. Stay home and don't leave.
    3. Nobody gets to drive. Nobody. Not cops, not ambulances,,,,nobody. Incuding you.
    Same with guns. But that gennie is already out of the bottle.
