Donald Trump Jr. has shown his support for a law called the “The Hearing Protection Act,” that will make it easier to purchase gun silencers. This could help with hearing problems caused by loud guns.
“It’s about safety. 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,” said Trump Jr. in an interview.
“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,” said Trump Jr.
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. Do you think this is a good law?
