Donald Trump Jr. has shown his support for a new law called the “The Hearing Protection Act,” that will make it easier to purchase gun silencers. The law is designed to minimize hearing problems caused by loud guns.
“It’s about safety,” said Trump Jr. in an interview. “It’s about hearing protection. It’s a health issue for me. It’s just a great instrument. There’s nothing bad about it all. It makes total sense. It’s where we should be going.” He went on to say:
“I’ve had the privilege of being able to hunt in Europe where some of the strictest gun laws in the world exist, but guess what? Virtually every hunting gun there is suppressed. They have silencers there, they don’t look at it as this military whatever, I don’t even know what the left tries to portray this as. It’s about safety.”
The bill was introduced by South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Texas Rep. John Carter. “I’ve been shooting since I was a young child — beginning with plinking with a .22 rifle and dove hunting with my Dad. My hearing has been damaged because of gun noise,” said Duncan.
“Had I had access to a suppressor, it may have protected me, as well as millions of other Americans, from this sort of hearing loss. This is a health issue,” said Duncan who agrees with Trump wholeheartedly.
Gun rights activist Colion Noir, is also fighting the issue on his NRATV show. “I ought to be able to protect my life without going deaf in the process,” he said. “Complacency and apathy will always be the catalyst to the degradation our rights,” he said. “You know who decides what normal is? The people with the loudest voice. So if you want to protect your freedom, take the suppressor off your mouth and put it on your gun.”
