"I support REPEALING the ban on weapons in EMS vehicles"
As a vounteer EMT in the State of VA I fully support the repeal of this ban, as it only protects us as emergency providers in hostile situations. This repeal will benefit rural EMS agencies tremendously as we arrive to violent scenes before law enforcement and it will avoid additional confrontations and difuse potential attacks on EMS personel.
The life you may save by repealing this ban may be your local volunteer EMT who serves his/her community with unselfish dedication.
