I support the removal of the ban on weapons on ambulances.

Don't expect to see headlines in the New York Times where a Virginia medic has gunned down a patient for being combative or unruly. It won't happen. We can't live our lives in fear but we live in a different world since 9/11. I feel it is our right to protect ourselves and all those that we love. That's right love. Love thy father,thy mother, thy brother, thy sister and thy neighbor. This is a good thing that goverment has finally done for us.
