Quick Clip: Should paramedics be armed?
What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comment section below
In this week's Inside EMS podcast quick clip, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss what would happen if paramedics and EMTs were allowed to carry guns on duty.
"I am not convinced that we should be armed inside those ambulances," Chris said. "The first time a paramedic shoots somebody, it's going to change the game of EMS forever."
Kelly counters Chris' argument with comparing it to a derivative of the blood in the streets argument.
