I support REPEALING the ban on weapons
I completely support the repeal on the weapons ban for EMS workers. I was a VA. state and Nationally certified EMT for many years and arrived at many violent scenes from beatings to murders etc. before police on numerous occasions and felt helpless and vunerable until the police finally arrived. Everyone and especially first responders should have the right to protect themselves!
