this seems less yandere and more... I don't even know. Some kind of bizarre matrix scenario? Take the red bullet?

She can just aim for the sound of you talking shit.

No, she can't.

The sound localization of the sound source being left or right is trivial (loudness difference and phase shift of the two ears).
But the sound localization of the sound source being in front or behind is more complex than that. That's when the HTRF (head related transfer function) comes into play.
The main idea behind it is that our ear-shapes produce different disturbances in the perceived frequency-spectrum. Basically the ear lets some frequencies through better than other frequencies. And those disturbances depend on the direction of the sound source relative to the head direction. The attenuation of the individual frequencies is different, depending on whether the sound source is in front or behind the listener. Then the brain tries to localize the sound source based on the perceived disturbances.
And the HTRF of a human being doesn't make SUCH a high accuracy possible. Also since the HTRF based sound localization works purely through different disturbances in the amplitudes of different frequencies, I can trick her into thinking that I am elsewhere simply by talking with a higher or lower pitch of my voice or by talking with a slightly different voice. The brain can't figure out the disturbances in a sound it has never heard before and thus can't localize it.

And even IF she somehow manages to aim accurately enough by being VERY VERY lucky, I can duck at the last moment and she won't even notice.

I think the bigger question here is, Who let a blind girl have a gun?

Lucky for her, she'll have plenty of time to aim at the sound of you making a long speech about how she can't hit you.
