On Blindness and Guns in Iowa

I have received several emails about the recent decision in Iowa granting blind people the right to buy guns. Predictably my liberal friends don’t know what to make of this story though their instincts tell them that blind people and guns don’t go together. Comments on Facebook are either giggly or snarky. Me? The whole thing puts me in mind of the “most interesting man in the world”–”I don’t always shoot guns when I’m blind, but when I do, I do it in Iowa. Stay loaded, my friends.”

The Rachel Maddow show was giggly and snarky about this story today.
