I support the removal of the "no weapons" regulation

Thank you for removing the regulation that prohibits weapons in ambulances. Most EMS providers routinely carry a knife, many carry pepper gas or mace, and the decision to bar firearms should rest with the EMS Agency Director/employer, not unelected state workers.
