The LA Times reports that more disabled people oppose assault weapons restrictions. The reason is these bans often target features and accessories that aid those with a disability to properly shoot and handle a firearm with ease.
Sal Foti, a 57-year-old shooter who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, was the inspiration for the story after the newspaper got wind of his Guns.com article highlighting the issue (check out his most recent work here)
Foti has also spoken out against the increasing laws surrounding “assault rifles,” LA Times reports.
