Not at all, just saying I think they should consider a taser and taser training as an alternative solution, particularly if they end up barred from the carry permit legislatively.

It would be like giving a blind person a driving licence.

It is a Right, but that Right can be denied on psychological, medical and criminal issues according to current legislation in many areas. Now do I agree with the blind not being able to own firearms? No I don't a blind person has the same rights as every American but is it responsible of them to carry concealed is another question I say depends on how blind if its legally blind where they still retain some vision albeit limited then yes however totally blind no way you should carry concealed its not responsible because how can you ensure a proper backstop let alone hit the attacker. In training I have had to be oc sprayed and still hit a target at 15 meters so all those saying oc is the same as totally blind it's not

Except that driving is a "privilege" while an armed self-defense is a right...and speeding bullets don't get traffic citations.

A Charter Arms Bulldog or other short-barreled revolver loaded with shot shells would work well for a close encounter, and the shot would scatter and lose velocity quickly. The shot shells could even be loaded with a light charge to help limit their effective range.

How could they identify the target it could be a child or another innocent person. How could they shoot accurately at the intended target. How would they know if there were innocent bystanders . They have a right. People also have a right not to be shot by someone that caint see what they are shooting at.

So, you agree they have a right to an armed self-defense, good. The rest are just concerns about how someone exercises their right, and are really only for the courts to decide in the event the blind person misses.


It is easy to underestimate blind people, because we aren't blind. I will never understand how one of my college buddy's friends could play tetris, since dude was blind.
