Right to a gun permit

I'm all for the right to carry a gun if you qualify but I think this goes a little too far, sight should be a reasonable qualification. http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video ... .kgan.html

Im sure even a blind person would make a robber or punk flee if they showed a gun. It might not be perfect but I guess I dont have a problem with it.

Doesn't a blind person have a right to defend themselves? If they are in their home they are probably more aware of their surrounding than you.

To buy a shoulder arm /rifle...for hunting or target shooting, we should complete a short 2 days course. That gives you the right to ask for an AAAF(autorisation d'acquisition d'arme a feu). Then you can get a shoulder arm.
But for pistol or revolver JUST to go to shoot to a range then it becomes much more complicated. The AAAF is needed plus an other course for the security and how these arms work. Then you ask for a special buying permit and for a transport permit. Don't get catch with a fist arm out of the road from your house to the shooting range...the transport permit is ONLY good for going between A and B locations. Don't even think about carrying a gun.
In fact it's very difficult and problematic to have a restricted arm (pistol or revolver) in Québec. Anyways, if you have a gun, any kind of, don't use it here to defend yourself cause you are instantly the bad guy. Get hurt, rubbed, abused...then just call 911.
So I sold/almost gave my 2 arms a few years ago: a nice Colt 45 ACP St-St and a Ruger 22 Bull Barrel. Was too much complicated to keep them. But I still have 2 Henry lever action and a Marlin 30-30
As you can see all is Perfect here in the North :lol: Salutations Flyer5 and the other South Friends

Just curious do the criminals follow these laws? Or is there not much crime involving firearms? Just curious because that is how our gun free zones are justified here. But here it doesn't work so well.

I think that the no arm associations just want one thing to be here; to have the ""right"" to carry a gun, you must be a policeman or a bandit. :)
Province of Québec is a small one, about 8 million so it's hard to compare with other places, much bigger like you have in the States and when we read a report about firearms it's always based on: what side is the writer :for or against arms.

Gunloader, how effective do you think you would be in that church if you couldn't see? I'm guessing you did read about that little part of this whole thing. :?

Samhill, there is blind, legally blind, and many gray areas in between. If you pull a gun, most people are scattering for the exits. Color BLINDNESS for instance. Blind people have the same rights as the rest of us.

Then I guess you wouldn't be opposed to their driving then too, I know I'm aging myself with this but all they would need is curb feelers all around. That is if they can hear but that wouldn't hold them back either, what the heck they could be pilots too. We have a resident pilot here that had some problems with that if I recall.

<personal comment removed>Plenty of people that are "blind" drive legally. My mother was just scary but drove until even she didnt feel comfortable. Airline pilots fly the PUBLIC around and are held to a higher standard. But I think even regular pilots are held to a higher standard also. By the way, it is not your RIGHT to fly a plane. OR drive a car. It is your RIGHT to own a gun if you choose.
