Things are getting heated in the gun world, especially with gun control advocates doing everything in their power to defeat the Second Amendment. But there’s one group who has ramped up their pulled cards out of their back pocket: Gun Owners of America (GAO).

Earlier this week, GAO submitted a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee expressing their concern over House Bill 1652, Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act.

According to GAO, the bill could adversely affect gun owners. By establishing this new regulation, “hearing enhancers,” used by hunters to amplify sound, would mean the government could regulate hunting.

Devices used for hunting are similar to hearing aids but are often used by those without hearing loss. Stores like Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops sell these hearing-aid type of devices to improve a hunter’s ability to detect the presence of game.

“There’s a pretty good chance that these hunting devices would fall within Warren’s definition of ‘over-the-counter hearing aid.’ Which would mean that a new federal bureaucracy would be in charge of regulating hunting,” the letter reads.
