If you’ve ever wondered where your average NRA member might come down on blind people carrying guns, Dom Raso is your guy. Raso, a former Navy SEAL and frequent commentator for NRA News, posted a two-minute video editorial outlining why seeing what you're shooting at isn’t really that important. "Every law-abiding, blind individual should be able to have whatever guns they want” is Dom’s operating thesis statement. “And if you disagree with that statement or you haven’t thought it all the way through, you don’t take your rights seriously enough.”
The video—posted on Monday—points out this is not necessarily the NRA’s stance, but even still, on Thursday, the NRA yanked it down off their site.
