Nor can you ignore the practical limitations on using a CCW in the back of an ambulance by simply declaring it is not part of the discussion.It’s not “training” it’s actual video and hands on training.
The discussion on this thread is not about outdrawing anyone. It’s about carrying a concealed firearm legally and responsibly on the job, and having the opportunity to equalize a situation where your own, your partner’s or an innocent bystanders life could potentially be on the line before law enforcement intervention is available, or before you have an opportunity to safely exit a scene which suddenly becomes unsafe.
Will I end up hurt? Probably. However, although there aren’t many, there definitely are more documented events proving it’s better to carry concealed as a prehospital care provider than not.
You don’t have to carry a firearm if you choose not to. But you can’t force me not to. You won’t even know I am unless the unthinkable happens.
