Does the 2nd Amendment guarantee an absolute right?
Or is there more to the story?
People with sight shoot themselves. Yes he should.
Since when does a disability justify denying a right?
...And there are degrees of blindness.

There is no "right" to carrying a concealed pistol.
I'm guessing that since he's been in and out of courts with this issue since 1994 there is more going on than meets the eye.
My opinion? Give the man his guns back! If he shoots himself again, well, that is his business, not mine. Where does the Constitution say we need to be protected from ourselves?
As long as he isn't my neighbor, but why would a blind man even want a gun. Why doesn't he do something more sensible, like raising rattlesnakes.
He does have a constitutional right to do so, I guess.
1. Being disabled is not a felony.
2. The article mentions nothing about concealed carry.
3. As to a blind person driving, there is no constitutional right to a license.
There are no exceptions in the constitution.
The constitution does not forbid someone who has been convicted of a felony to own a gun either. That is another constitutional right that has been stripped away from people. In fact in Texas it is legal for a convicted felon to own a gun but the feds override that freedom.
When we allow the government to strip away another's freedom or right you can bet that yours is next.
