Audiologist Touts Hearing Protection Act

posted on May 31, 2017

As a designer and manufacturer dedicated to creating products that will improve sound reduction levels, it’s no surprise that SilencerCo stands in strong support of the Hearing Protection Act. Introduced in January by Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., and John Carter, R-Texas, and applauded by the NRA, the bill would remove suppressors from the scope of the National Firearms Act.

To highlight the importance of this legislation, SilencerCo published a video last week noting that, as of 2012, up to 40 million adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with some form of noise-induced hearing loss. They also spoke to audiologist Steven Wade, who sees the ill effects of hearing loss every day with his patients. “I would much rather write a prescription for a suppressor than for a set of a hearing aids,” he says in the video.

The Hearing Protection Act—H.R. 367 in the House and S. 59 in the Senate—does not yet have a date for committee hearings.
