Lawmaker aims to allow the blind to hunt
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.Of course, I suspect the blind hunters only do it for the jerky.
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.
By the way, I think a better headline would have been "Lawmaker wants to legalize hunting for blind people."
