I support REPEALING the ban on weapons

EMS personnel should be allowed to have immediate access to a handgun at all times.

Private citizens have a right keep and bear arms, and EMS personnel should have an even stronger right to protect themselves due to the dangerous situations that they often encounter in their profession.
