I see no link to vote.
As medic, with a valid LTCH, I would, to a point, and so would my partner, a woman. We are now allowed to carry on the property and leave it in the car without punishment. Before we couldn't but most did anyway.
Some thoughts. Are town is fairly safe. More cho-mo's then robbers. We never put ourselves in harms way. We are taught to leave a egress and wait till seen is safe. At night we carry big 4D mag lights with us. We all carry knives. We have some good stuff that would put down a horse if needed. We wrestle with pts alot of the time but never felt threatened. I alsways check for weapons when patting down someone for assesment. Only had a time where a gun was found. Nothing to worry about. PD responds at our request, if they are in the area-esp at night, or if they know the address. Another thing to look at is the areas we get into. Trying to crawl into a car window the size of you PC screen would be impossible. If you take it off to work where do you secure it? Cant lock the ambulance and I'm not giving it to someone. Most of us do not wear coats in the winter for the same reason even when its 10 deg out. Cant work with it on.
Some providers that work in the bad area of the next town over wear bullit proof vests.
Not sure what I would do.
