Im Dong-hyun, who is registered as blind, broke his own 72-arrow mark of 696 by three points and was also part of a record in the team shoot. Im's partial sight means he shoots at the centre of a colourful blur he sees 70 metres before him.

Shall not be infringed UNLESS YOUR BLIND? BS!
in those competitions the legally blind has audio guides that tell him how he's positioned towards the goal he's trying to hit... that's a silly reference to advocate for legally blind people running around with guns in public. The blind archer would not know if someone is standing between him and the "artificial", already dead sports target he's trying to hit, for a start.
As a starter: the question was: should blind people be allowed to carry guns "in public" ?
Then, i don't think ANY private person should be allowed to carry a gun in public.
Neither do i believe that the 2nd amendment does provide that right to anyone... and it actually never did, prior to 2008, when the current SCOTUS in a controversial 5-4 landmark decision changed the interpretation of the 2nd amendment as it stood in the 200 years before that ruling.
And i don't understand why people always freak out when other people talk about "regulating" the right to bear arms - as it is literally stated in the 2nd amendment - and see that as an attempt to take guns away from them.
Regulating the issuance of guns / gun permits is - imo - a very reasonable and logical thing to do, as a lot of other things are regulated on a federal level. The 2nd amendment explicitly gives that right to bear arms to "a well-regulated" militia... without even arguing that barely anyone who's carrying a gun does so for that "militia reason"... to have that right "well regulated", should not be deemed unconstitutional by anyone.
It seems to be completely "normal" for everyone, that blind people should not drive cars, because it would be way too dangerous, to themselves, and more so to others.
When one starts making the same argument when it comes to the carrying - and potential usage - of a gun... it's an infringement on their constitutional rights, their freedom, and their equality.
So yes, i would ABSOLUTELY tell them they cannot have a gun because they cannot see.
