Half Of Texas Prepares To Move To Oklahoma

I guess I shouldn't be surprised about this. Coming as it does from a state with drive-in liquor stores.
A bill filed for the 2007 legislative session would permit legally blind hunters to use laser sights, or lighted pointing instruments.

"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.


Isn't the key part of laser sight the word "sight" (Yes, yes, I know. I read the article and they specifically mention being accompanied by a spotter.) I have this image of of bullet ridden houses, cars, and generally destroyed foliage.

It makes me shudder.

Admittedly, with suppressed laughter. Because I don't live in Texas.
