    Blind Man Shoots Intruder, Officials praise him!

    This is interesting, I like the fact that news story stated he was praised and not the cynical "officials are investigating whether to charge the blind man with manslaughter"

    If I can remember correctly there was a case in the midwest where a blind man was about to lose his CWP over the fact he was blind and defenseless....this should help his case (or appeal)

    Huh, the state take away his 'right' to defend himself.
    Sounds like a possible suit against the state for them to provide round the clock protection for him.

    I don't know the actual definition of "legally blind," but I know that it does not necessarily imply "can't see anything but a black screen in front of you". Chances are he can see shapes and light and dark, and that's probably enough to be able to point a revolver at an attacker who is at arm's length.

    Way to go, Mr. Williams!

    Focusing on the crime and the criminal, instead of the victim and tactics used to remain safe. What a concept. Glad to see the citizen is okay. That's the goal, every time.
