I support complete restoration of EMS personnel to carry a firearm either concealed or openly.

EMS personnel should have the same legal right to carry a firearm either concealed or openly while tending to their duties both on and off the job. The ban that currently exists is a violation of their Constitutionally protected 2nd Ammendment right and needs to be repealed.
