I support removal of the regulation against weapons
First responders are often at risk. Many have been assaulted while trying to perform their duties. Just the knowledge that a EMS provider might be armed should reduce the number of assaults. EMS providers are trainded to preserve life, so they will not use a weapon unless it is to preserve their or a patient's life..
