Iowas Cedar County Sheriff Warren Wethington, claims it is perfectly safe for 100% legally blind people to carry around and use guns Zimmerman style. [I am paraphrasing.] Jane Hudson, executive director of Disability Rights Iowa, who says blocking visually impaired people from the right to obtain weapon permits would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act. That federal law generally prohibits different treatment based on disabilities. I guess blind drivers licenses will be next? Oh wait their is no radical NRA style lobby trying to push that through. Never mind.
Private gun ownership, even hunting by legally blind Iowans is nothing new. But the practice of visually impaired residents legally carrying firearms in public became widely possible thanks to insane NRA/ALEC sponsored gun permit changes that took effect in Iowa in 2011.
