I support REPEALING the ban on weapons
 

I support REPEALING the ban on weapons in EMS vehicles.  EMS personnel should be able to protect themselves while on the job.  In some cases they arrive at the scene of potential violence before the police; they need to protect themselves while they attempt to save lives.
