Former Rep. Gabrielle Gifford’s gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions took to twitter this week to criticize the Hearing Protection Act of 2017.
In the Monday tweet, ARS claims that a pair of ear plugs “protects your hearing better than a silencer” and that “Silencers do not protect your hearing.”

The tweet also claims the Hearing Protection Act will endanger communities and make active shooters harder to detect by law enforcement.
