I couldn't find what rifle he used. . In one article it was called a remmington rifle in .308 caliber . Also called an "assault rifle" . I went to my bookmarked ?Remmington Arms site and no where could I find an assault rifle, what ever that is. I got no hits worn put in the search.
So I checked every model of rifle. Checked their "tactical" rifles group. In that group, I did find several .308 as that's a popular caliber for hunting. Found severa bolt action models . Maybe that's what he used.
Checked the center fire category to find several but none in .308.
Could be the author was wrong about the Assault rifle thing.
On the protection of ones self issue. I believe a person should be able to protect himself in his home. I think a blind person should also. I don't think they have fewer rights than sighted individuals.
As to this case, in particular, I haven't followed it so other then the few media accounts with extremely skimpy info which is pretty biases I don't know if he was guilty or not. It could be that the blind guy chased the victim around his home shooting him several times with his bolt action rifle. But maybe not.
The articles say the defendant claimed the guy attacked him and he shot him.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
