New Florida Law Allows Trained Paramedics To Bring Firearms On Dangerous Calls

Great idea!

Published

on

A new law in the state of Florida now allows paramedics to protect themselves on the job by bringing firearms along on dangerous emergency calls, a move which pro-gun crowds should celebrate as an obvious upholding of the spirit of the Second Amendment.

The right to bear arms was designed so that all Americans would have the right to possess the means necessary to defend life, liberty, and property from tyrants and criminals alike who try to take what does not belong to them.

It’s common sense to allow paramedics, who are often called into dangerous areas to help those who need medical treatment, to be allowed to carry weapons that would increase their safety.

A story at the Palm Beach Post last week explains that the law, which went into effect at the beginning of July, does not allow for emergency medical personnel to be armed for their day-to-day responsibilities, but only in special circumstances. These are things like active shooter incidents, narcotics raids, and hostage situations.

“Our policy is very clear, ” EMS bureau chief of rescue for Martin County Fire Rescue Chris Kammel told the newspaper. “You will not see any Martin County Fire Rescue employees getting out of an ambulance or a fire engine with a firearm on their side.”

The law, which was signed by Republican governor Ron DeSantis in early June, also requires the medical responders to hold concealed weapons permits in order to be eligible to carry, according to ABC Action News Tampa Bay. They also have to go through gun safety training and take yearly tactical training.

Florida is not the first state to allow its medical first responders to carry when answering especially dangerous emergency calls. In 2016, Kansas enacted a law allowing paramedics, firefighters, and other public employees to carry firearms except in school zones or on private property marked as “gun free.” A 2018 Ohio law allows medical responders attached to SWAT teams to carry after receiving appropriate firearms training.

This is great news for supporters of the Second Amendment and points to the fact that Florida is growing more and more conservative by the day. Of course, it was already largely a red state before, but this just goes to show you the kind of culture that is developing down there.

Now, if only we could get some massive reforms on guns that would loosen ridiculous restrictions the left has placed on this important right so that we can all be better protected when out in public.

Abolishing gun free zones sounds like a good starting point.

Save conservative media!

MSNBC Producer Quits, Pens Letter Calling Network A ‘Cancer’ That Stokes ‘Racial Division’

‘Bout time someone said it!

If it walks and quack like a duck, it’s probably a duck. Everybody knows that MSNBC does its audience a disservice by reporting opinion over fact. But they’re not about to let up anytime soon. Thankfully, one woman has seen the light. And she’s outta there! From Daily Wire: A former MSNBC producer wrote an open letter on Monday explaining why she left the far-left network a little over a week ago, saying that they are a “cancer” that is “stoking national division” by amplifying “fringe voices” and forcing “journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.” The letter was written by Ariana Pekary, who Fox News noted described herself as an “integral member” of MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.” CONTINUED: “July 24th was my last day at MSNBC. I don’t know what I’m going to do next exactly but I simply couldn’t stay there anymore,” Pekary wrote. “My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions. The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.” Pekary said that at MSNBC it was “practically baked in to the editorial process” that decisions on what and who give coverage to were based on what would generate the most ratings for the network. She said that behind closed doors “industry leaders will admit the damage that’s being done.” Nobody outside of Chinese leaders can be blamed for coronavirus. The communist nation was responsible for the outbreak and initially failed to alert the rest of the world before it got as bad as is. Now, every world leader is doing their best to combat further spreading of the disease. President Trump and his team have stepped up to the plate, advising Americans on what needs to be done. Precautions have been…

Ivy League School to Hold Month Long Workshop for White Students, ‘Deconstructing Whiteness’

Are you serious??

Psst, white conservatives who attend Columbia – just saw you don’t identify as white. That should be enough to exempt you from this program, right? They wouldn’t dare call you out for identifying as another race, would they? Here’s the deal, via Campus Reform: For weeks, Columbia University Health has been hosting Zoom workshops as part of a series titled “From Ally to Accomplice at Columbia: Working Group for Examining and Deconstructing Whiteness to Mitigate Racial Trauma.” The weekly online “interactive curriculum,” which began July 7 and concludes Monday, is designed for “white-identified students” to “engage in exploration of their white identities and build community and accountability around deconstructing whiteness and white privilege to facilitate the development of an antiracist lens.” https://twitter.com/jessesingal/status/1280205783213408257?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw People who attend, attended, or work for Harvard University are supposed to be smart. Sure, there are some good ones out there – Ben Shapiro and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), for example. But by and large, the Ivy League school is nothing more than a breeding ground for liberal nonsense. Here’s an example, from Washington Times via Right Scoop: Harvard researchers publicly walked back Monday a key finding in a highly touted but hotly contested paper linking air pollution exposure to deaths from the novel coronavirus, slashing the estimated mortality rate in half. The preliminary study by researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health made a splash when the results were announced April 7 in the New York Times, prompting alarm on the left as Democrats sought to connect COVID-19 deaths to the Trump administration’s regulatory pushback.
