I support repealing the ban on weapons
 
I support repealing the ban on weapons in EMS vehicles. EMS work can be extremely dangerous, especially when they arrive on the scene of a crime or domestic disturbance before the police do.  All innocent life is valuable and people should be able to protect themselves wherever they might go, our EMS personelle should be no different.
