EMS gun ban

I believe that since EMT's are sent to potentially life threatening situations at times, that they should be allowed to be armed. It would definitely make me feel secure if I had a crash in a bad section of town, and was unconcious, that an EMT would be able to have my back upon his/ hers arrival. I therefore support the EMS gun ban repeal.

Thank you for your support in this subject.
