Bringing New Meaning To ‘Firing Blind’

This is to hard to believe

Rep. Edmund Kuempel, a Republican from Seguin, about 30 miles east of San Antonio, has introduced a bill to exempt legally blind people from a Texas law that prohibits hunters from using laser sights or lights in hunting. Critics of the practice say the laser lights make the animals freeze in place, which diminishes the sport of the kill.

"It gets more people in the outdoors, ( I for one am staying out of the outdoors if there are blind ppl in the woods with guns) and gives them more pride in hunting, because it gives them a better chance of harvesting an animal," said Kuempel, an avid hunter. He noted that about 15 states allow blind hunters to use lasers.
