NJ judge grants right to bear arms to man who can't use his.... arms

#1
I can't for the life of me figure out what to make of this.

Cap was an avid hunter as a teenager. He was paralyzed 30 years ago after breaking his neck in a high school football game. He plans to mount the gun on his wheelchair and operate it with a breathing tube.


Linky.

I think it's the logistics of a quadriplegic in a wheelchair going hunting successfully that's got me at a loss here.

Dude, if he can hunt, why not? Frankly, I'm just wondering why he needed a judge to approve this. I mean as long as the dude does it safely, what's the issue?

I'm waiting for some kind of idea of exactly how he does it at all, let alone safely. But this isn't a ZOMG BS thread, it's a WTF thread.

Because he CAN'T operate it safely. Quardapalegics use breathing tubes alot. Suppose he uses the wrong one?

That just seems ridiculous. Well, the right to bear arms seems ridiculous to me, and if you have to go to such extreme lengths to allow someone to use a gun then something has gone seriously wrong.

And I also thought this meant the guy would get a pair of bear arms, I was crushingly dissapointed.

Yeah, tell me about it.


Given that this guy used to love hunting, how is he gunna traverse the wild without some assistance? And firing with a breathing tube? I know of air darts, but still. It'll take out the sports context and challenge in hunting.
It'd be like hunting boar with a laser guide missile. Actually, that would be kinda fun.


I hate swine.

SO why would he need a judge to grant him this RIGHT.

So they'd be ready to engage in vigilante justice? Which is a criminal offence. Are your police officers that bad that you rely on randomers with guns to stop criminals?

Right, because "criminals," which is a very accurate category holding everyone who breaks the law, all have guns already. This explains stabbings as well.

He may be a troll, but he's an incredibly successful troll. So kudos on that.

Oh just give him the gun and be done with it. He'd be 'armless anyway.

What good would having arms do him? He's paralyzed from the neck down anyway...

Edit: Oh! You guys were talking about GUNS.

Lawfully or unlawfully, guns are available to you all.
Take advantage of the great sales!
See that fo-fo right thur!? Buy one and get a .357, half-off!!

Criminals are still people. Law abiding citizens could very easily cross that (thin) line, give the right nudge.

This is how the correctional system and law enforcement works; by establishing an "us" (LAC) vs "them" (criminals) mentality. In reality, it's more than just a polarity, or several shades of grey. It's a complex ecosystem that we are trying to control, for better or worse.

Huedit: I see your point now. I misinterpreted it at first.

I think he ought to just use a shoulder cannon, a bit like the Predator.

Then, with the appropriate bionic alterations, he could pretty much just turn into one of the robots from Short Circuit.

Is he planning on going hunting or just using the shooting range? Cause I'd like to know how he'll hunt game through thick undergrowth in a wheelchair.
