What new madness is this? Texas representative Edmund Kuempel has proposed an amendment to an existing law that would allow legally blind people to go hunting with laser sighted rifles. Existing law allows visually-impaired people to hunt with a sighted partner to act as a guide - that's pretty fucking scary enough as it is.
I'm all for empowering the visually-impaired, but giving them a rifle and telling them it's okay to go and shoot at things is about as stupid as letting them drive cars. Somebody needs to vote this half-witted Republican out of office before he gets people killed.
