Flack Jackets in Texas

Yikes, big fun in Texas:

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A Texas lawmaker is aiming to allow the blind to hunt. Texas State Representative Edmund Kuempel has introduced a measure that would allow blind people to hunt any game that sighted people can currently pursue.

"This opens up the fun of hunting to additional people, and I think that's great," Kuempel told Reuters.
It sounds to me like lots more fun than the usual fun of hunting. The bill requires that the blind person have a sighted companion along for the ride. As a witness for the subsequent lawsuits? Nah, so that someone can answer, "What'd I hit this time?" I mean, come on, sighted hunters have been known to shoot cows, dogs, refrigerators, other hunters.... Why not amend the bill to require that everyone in the hunting party be drunk? That sounds like the recipe for big hunting fun.
