    Taking Guns Away from the Blind

    Court debate: Should blind Rockaway Township, NJ, man be permitted to keep his guns?

    Authorities are either trying to protect the public from a blind Rockaway Township man's shoddy gun storage methods or are eager to take away his constitutional right to own firearms, according to court arguments Thursday.

    Morris County Assistant Prosecutor Joseph D'Onofrio appeared before a Superior Court judge in Morristown asking to revoke Steven Hopler's firearms identification cards that allow him to own guns, and to take away about 16 of his firearms.

    With Hopler, 47, seated beside him, attorney Gregg Trautmann argued against the action, calling it a long-term battle waged by police to deprive Hopler of his Second Amendment right under the U.S. Constitution

I repeat it, Sir, let it come …………. PATRICK HENRY speech 1776

    Hard to tell which way this case will go. I don't believe he will win, afterall, a state that doesn't trust people to pump their own gas will probably not trust a blind man with a gun. Irregardless, the guns should be returned even if the subject does not prevail in court. The firearms are part of his estate and should be sold for their value and not destroyed by the peoples' republic.
