Texas senate passes bill to aid hunters

Austin, Texas (AP) – The Texas Senate has voted to allow some
hunters who have vision problems use a laser-sighting device,
sending the measure to Gov. Rick Perry.

The bill is authored by Rep. Ed Kuempel, a Seguin Republican who
collapsed at the Capitol on Tuesday night and was in stable but
guarded condition at a hospital.

Texas generally bans hunting with an artificial light, including
laser sighting devices. The bill allows disabled hunters to using
the laser device if they are assisted by a non-disabled hunter and
have a doctor or optometrist statement certifying the extent of the
sight disability.

Supporters of the measure say it will improve the shooters’
accuracy, reducing the likelihood the hunted game is only
wounded.
