The state of Iowa and blind people with guns

Post by Niner » Sun Jan 26, 2020 12:21 pm

In the state of Iowa blind people can be issued gun permits and can carry in public. The question in my mind is...since they can't actually point a gun at someone in particular.. I guess they shoot on the pray and spray method.

Come to think of it, Iowa is the first state to have a Presidential candidates vote to decide who they want to send electors for to the upcoming conventions. It figures then that they would also give blind people permits to carry around firearms. Whoever Iowa makes a front runner, he or she, is only a shot in the dark at best.

Blind people with gun permits.... sure, why not. There is braille on the buttons at the
bank drive-up window..... I guess now they can rob the bank from the comfort of their car..... :mrgreen:

Niner Delta, probably one of the Tesla auto drive cars could help a blind man hold up a bank. Wonder how many states give blind people drivers licenses? In Alabama you have to have at least one eye that can read an eye chart and have insurance.

Not as silly as it sounds (no pun intended),
here's an address for the visually impaired shooters.
