Yes repeal the EMS gun ban!

On behalf of's 30,084 registered members, I urge approval of the regulatory repeal of the EMS gun ban.  EMS personnel often arrive at crime scenes before the police, or at least before the police have things in hand. 

EMS personnel have the right to defend themselves and their patients.  Let them carry guns!
