In Iowa, the Blind Can Buy a Gun, Take Aim, and Fire

There are probably plenty of people who shouldn’t own a gun, not just blind people. Still, it’s pretty logical why we shouldn’t issue gun permits for people who can’t even see. As a side note, Michigan and Texas are the only two states that allow blind people to hunt. While blind people in Texas are required to have a sighted companion, a blind person in Michigan can hunt alone. Still, involving the blind on gun issues tends to border on a level of silliness more than anything.


Ever since gun permit rules were changed in 2011, Iowa has allowed blind people to buy and carry guns in public. But the policy is now being revisited in a growing political debate.
