Well, nobody's going to change their opinion, and the name-calling and bad-mouthing is in full force, so I'm unsubscribing.

I never saw anything on here that said he drove only on private property, if that was mentioned early in the thread I mustve missed it and I'm sorry. Yes your private property is just that and you're free to do what you wish on it. I must say with that driving record you must give excellent directions.

Anyways...all blustered out about the subject. Just know that most blind/disabled individuals never say never. If they really want to do something your opinion isn't gonna stop them and I say "Yes!" If there is a will there is a way. Go get em cowboys cause in the end it's all about what you've done with your talents.

The way I see it, physical ability and mental ability are leaps and bounds apart,, being blind is a physical disability, they are 100 percent mentally capable of handling the responsibility of a firearm. They are blind folks, not retarded (not poking fun), they are not just going to have a blind seizure and start shooting randomly and go out of control. As far as being on the range with ANYBODY,, I could care less if you were blind, deaf, short, tall,, you show me any sign you are careless or a possible danger,, I will leave of course. Or have them removed depends. BUT UNTIL a blind person shows me he's dangerous, he can shoot next to me anytime.

...are some of you guys missing the point that very many legally blind people can see what's going on around them just fine? Again, I have a friend who won top shooter out of a 400 person national competition when we were in high school. He literally shot better than 400 people who WERENT blind.

Legally blind people often simply can't READ PRINT or have a narrow field of vision. This has NOTHING to do with the safe operation of a firearm.

I guess I just never realized the blind could be so...what's the word...observant I guess without thier eyes. I'd heard that when one of your senses goes away the others are hightened to make up for it. I guess it would be pretty interesting for me to see how a totally blind person can hit his target. I'm not gonna lie tho, I may still be a little nervous about the idea.

And cars are driven remotely every day on our roads. New technology has cars with no drivers why is it any more dangerous to drive by instruction?

Challenge: go to a parking lot with another person. Blindfold yourself and listen to their instructions and try to drive. Obviously your skills won't be great because you're newly blind so to speak. But you'll be amazed at what other senses you use unknowingly.
that is something I noticed on my 5 day blindness stretch. It didn't take long for my other senses to kick into overdrive
