Pete Bossley writes in to say:

I know I’m late commenting on this one, but here goes:
I’m not in favor of laws that preclude people from carrying, owning, buying or otherwise participating in and with firearms based on their blindness alone. I believe that it is a fundamental right that we possess. That having been said, owning and using a firearm safely are responsibilities that shouldn’t be taken lightly. By blind people or sighted people alike. And like it or not, a firearm is one of the more dangerous objects out there that are in common circulation. It is important to understand that bullets can and do travel significant distances and in unpredictable directions when they strike solid surfaces like brick and pavement. So, in short, a blind person should go out and get some quality professional training, and I would venture to say that they probably need 5 to 10 times the training that a sighted person may, simply in order to understand the risks involved. Then they should carefully weigh the risks, keeping in mind their special limitations, in addition to the criminal, civil, and moral liabilities attendant to exercising that right, and then make an informed decision. As an aside, I totally agree with Ricky’s comments regarding legislating responsibility. Having some significant personal experience in this Arena I really want to urge caution on this particular issue for folks…
