Lawmaker aims to allow the blind to hunt
Tue Dec 12, 2006 10:41 AM ET



AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A Texas lawmaker is aiming to allow the blind to hunt. Texas State Representative Edmund Kuempel has introduced a measure that would allow blind people to hunt any game that sighted people can currently pursue.

He hopes it will be passed after the legislature reconvenes in January though he does not expect it to come into affect until 2008.

"This opens up the fun of hunting to additional people, and I think that's great," Kuempel told Reuters.

The bill may find little resistance in Texas, where politicians of all stripes endorse hunting, which is wildly popular in the state.

Under the bill, blind hunters would be required to have a sighted hunter with them and would be allowed to use laser sights and other devices that are currently not allowed.

"A blind person can shoot a rifle by mounting an offset pistol scope on the side of the rifle instead of on top," said Terry Erwin, the Austin-based Hunter Education Coordinator with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

"This allows their companion behind them to peer over their shoulder and help them sight it, but the blind person can pull the trigger," he told Reuters.

I heard that on my local news this morning (FOX5 NY.) I couldn't believe it when I heard that story.What really blew my mind was hearing that Dick Chaney was one of the instructors.

That's just me. I have a hard time with people I feel are being cry babies. As in the people that demand satisfaction caused by user error.

I'm to the point of not even entertaining questions from people that gave up on school after 5th grade.

Some people think differently I suppose.

I think it's great that Texas is allowing the disabled to participate in social activities.

I hear they even let people with no legs ski and mountain climb. You have a problem with that too?

Perhaps they shouldn't let blind people go the to observation deck of the Eiffel tower or the Empire State Building since they can't see the view!

I was wondering that too- Rusty always seemed pretty cool. Maybe he just pissed one person off.

We have already discussed this topic in the political forum. I say if he is not hurting anyone then let him be. I mean heck, Dick Cheney CAN see and he nearly killed someone, how much worse could he do?

You mean the blind currently aren't allowed to hunt? Crap. I gotta get the four wheeler and go get granny out of the tree stand.
