Las Vegas, NV-- Former KTNV Channel 13 reporter Christina Brown has filed a law suit over a hearing loss suffered during a story she did about Metro officer’s firearms training. I think this lawsuit is serious business and has merit.
I suffered a similar hearing loss and am hearing impaired today as a result. I’ve used both ear plugs and muffs together ever since my first traumatic ear damage. Some sadistic U.S. Army officials forced me and my basic training company comrades shoot M-14 rifles at Fort Leonard Wood, MO with no hearing protection whatsoever in 1968.
Please, always wear the strongest rated hearing protection while on the range because the damage is irreversible. Hearing aids are miserable to use as I have learned.
