OK, that's great and all, but then how do you explain this:
BOSTON -- A legally blind Boston Fire Department dispatcher who was reading the book "Practice Random Acts of Kindness" didn't hesitate Wednesday when he spotted a violent robbery during a subway ride.I guess being able to tell that someone is getting robbed of their iPod doesn't disqualify one from being legally blind. If he can see that well, than he could have certainly operated a handgun safely enough to stop the violent attack without putting himself in danger by wrestling with the guy. Usually armed confrontations end with the yellow thugs running off without a shot fired.
Not that you can legally use your God given right to defend yourself with a modern protective device in Boston; that state thinks it's okee dokee to let innocent people maimed and murdered by thugs on a day to day basis. It's the price that the serfs must pay to be 'progressive.'
Notice that our hero is legally blind due to a prior violent attack where several dissidents shot him in a restaurant. I guess he had it coming for following his moral compass.
