NBC NATIONAL NEWS — An Iowa gun law has been raising some questions: should a blind person be allowed to carry and conceal a fire arm? According to Iowa laws passed in 2011 there's nothing wrong with it.
But, what about other states, could a South Dakotan who is legally blind be allowed to carry a fire arm?
To carry a concealed weapon requires a license in South Dakota.
But, does the right to bear arms apply to everyone. What if the person holding the gun can't see the target?
