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!

Video: Biden Says Drunk Driving Is Not A Felony for Undocumented, Won’t Deport Because of It

He said what?

Joe Biden was speaking. Look out! Some crazy quotes are heading your way. For example, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner literally said he won’t deport illegals for drunk driving. No joke. His words. Think about that for a second. How many people have died from reckless, intoxicated drivers? Has Joe considered the fact that nobody would get hurt (or killed) by an illegal if there aren’t any illegals in the country? How can Democrats support this kind of rhetoric? Is Joe’s own family cool with this kind of talk? If so, why?

It couldn’t be more clear. With President Trump, it’s “America First.” With liberals, it’s “Anyone BUT America First.” The only reason that “America Second” was a winning strategy in 2008 and 2012 was because Barack was a minority. The left was desperate to get a black man into office, regardless of his policies. If Joe or any other Dem thinks the “America Second” strategy is going to work against Trump in 2020, well, best of luck – because it ain’t happening.

WATCH: Schiff Admits Trump’s Impeachment Is About Stopping Him From Winning Re-Election

Bing…Bang…Boom!

He admitted it, folks. The impeachment of President Donald Trump is strictly political. Of course, conservatives knew this from day one. The mainstream media has yet to catch on, but maybe now they will get a clue. Maybe. On Wednesday afternoon, radically far-left Congressman Adam Schiff said something that should end this charade once and for all. And yeah, Schiff’s words are a very big deal. From Daily Wire: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is serving as a Democratic impeachment manager during President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, admitted on Wednesday that Democrats’ partisan impeachment was about stopping the president from being re-elected. Schiff said, “The House did not take this extraordinarily step lightly. As we will discuss, impeachment exists for cases in which the conduct of the president rises beyond mere policies, disputes to be decided otherwise, and without urgency at the ballot box.” He added, “Instead, we are here today to consider a much more grave matter and that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election,” Schiff continued. “For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep. Adam Schiff: “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters.” “Where is Howard Baker?
