Blind hunters? WTF?!

Thanks to Matt for pointing this one out:

From the "Only in Texas" files: Blind hunters may be allowed to use lasers

I'm not a fan of hunting to start with, but there are blind people who are this desperate to kill something? And there are other people who think it's a good idea to let blind people fire guns? It's not even a good idea to let most people with 20-20 vision fire guns!

Coming next: blind driving!

There are, I've heard, only two states in the US that allow the blind to hunt: Texas, and my home state of Michigan. In Texas, the blind hunters must have a sighted guide. Here in Michigan they get to go it alone.

They also blindly administer justice in Texas through an antiquated system that requires all judges (including their supreme court) to run for office... that's not a biased system, no never... and you wonder why the are the top state in the union for executions :)

What do you expect? It's Texas! It's like a whole other country...

Of course you've seen the reslut of blind hunting. You go out hunting quail and shoot your oldest friend in the face.

Lee: at least they're not letting the drivers loose on the public. But I see your point. :)

Alan: I think I'll pass on a visit to Michigan anytime soon! Blind hunters on their own? Geez!

Shenida: Yeah, it sure is. We have some friends who live there. I don't know how they take it!

Cincy: Now that explains it! :)

Please. Texas was the state where an octogenarian apologized when the Vice President shot him.
