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.

WATCH: Sitting Dem Senator Threatens to Punch Trump In the Face, Then Calls for Peace

Another Democrat advocating for violence…

Dems love to say President Trump’s “rhetoric” leads to harm. Yet, they have no problem saying they literally want to physically assault the most powerful man on the planet. Where’s the logic? Can liberals even spell “hypocrisy?” From Daily Caller: Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester said Thursday the best way for Democrats to beat President Trump in 2020 is to “go back and punch him in the face” in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Tester noted, “I don’t think, even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it did you any good running away from Donald Trump. I think you need to go back and punch him in the face. The truth is this guy is bad for this country.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=QDztkBropAI Democrats truly believe the words they say and have no comprehension of the term “irony.” Liberal rhetoric has greatly harmed Americans for a long, long while now, yet they have the gall to slam President Trump for speaking the truth. Insane.

It’s that simple. Democrats and the mainstream media will look the other way on anything so long as you disagree with Trump on everything. Check out the tweet Montel sent, which he of course deleted: Really? Calling for cops to tase a conservative white woman, huh?

CONFIRMED: Trump Is Raising More Money In California Than ALL 2020 Dems – Except Two

HAHAHAHA! Excellent.

Here’s a story you won’t see ANYWHERE but on conservative websites. And there’s a good reason for it. President Trump is raking in more cash in the Golden State than all but two 2020 Dems. Go figure, huh? From CalMatters: This may come as surprise to the president, the national media and more than a few Californians, but there are plenty of Trump supporters in the “Resistance State,” too. And since the beginning of the year, they’ve been spending a lot of money to keep the president in the White House. New campaign finance statistics show that President Donald Trump raised $3.2 million—more money from the California donor class than all of his Democratic challengers, but two. Not only that, but the Trump campaign collected more from itemized small donors—those who gave in increments of less than $100 at a time—than anyone else in the field. The president bested even Democratic contender Bernie Sanders in the small-donor sweepstakes.
