Well, we can always count on Texas for fodder for the blog. A Texas State Legislator has introduced House Bill 308 which will allow for blind hunting in Texas.
We don’t mean blinds as in camouflaged places to hide (as in duck blind) waiting on your prey to wander by. We’re talking here about allowing blind people to hunt with loaded guns. Not only that, but just to level up the playing field with the game, they get to use special lasers that cause the prey to freeze.
Now how would you think someone would justify a bill like this? Well, he’s just ending the discrimination against blind people. “This opens up the fun of hunting to additional people, and I think that’s great,” said Republican Rep. Edmund Kuempel, the bill’s sponsor.
Well, maybe Dick Cheney can get a job as a gun safety instructor in Texas after 2008.
