I support repealing the ban on weapons

I support allowing EMS personnel (and everyone else for that matter) to be able to carry on the job.  EMS work can be dangerous, especially when they arrive on the scene of a crime before the police do (happens a lot).  All innocent life is valuable and people, including EMTs should be able to protect themselves wherever they might go.
