I support REPEALING the ban on weapons in EMS vehicles
Like the title says, I support REPEALING the ban on weapons in EMS vehicles.
EMS personnel (and everyone else for that matter) should be to be able to carry on the job. EMS work can be dangerous, especially when they arrive on the scene of a crime before the police do (happens a lot). People should be able to protect themselves wherever they might go, at work or at play.
This was supposed to be fixed a few years ago, but a snafu caused only one of the two locations of the weapon ban in the regulations to be removed. Let's get it all fixed this time around.
