Instructions: Read the below question, research the issue then give your opinion. Then read at least two other students responses and comment on them. Comments should be detailed and give your personnel unique perspective. You must add something to the conversation not just "good job" or "I agree"
There have been several incidents across the country in the past few years of first responders being attacked while trying to preform their duties. This has prompted discussion across the EMS community about the carrying of hand guns while on duty. This year the Texas legislator voted on two bills that would allow first responders less restrictions if they wanted to carry a handgun for personal protection while on duty. Neither bill passed but it is reasonable to assume that similar bills will follow. For this discussion I would like you to do some internet research on this issue and answer the following question. How do you feel about first responders and EMTs being allowed to carry firearms for personal protection while on duty?
