Flynn Working on Legislation to Arm First Responders

State Representative Dan Flynn, R-District 2, has begun working on a bill for the next legislative session relating to the carrying of a handgun by a first responder engaged in the actual discharge of the first responder’s duties. This would allow first responders like Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and firemen and women to carry a firearm on the job if they have a valid CHL without restrictions on places to carry.

Flynn stated, “It is crucial for these men and women to be able to protect themselves and the people they are sent to help as they are most often the first on the scene. Allowing first responders to carry firearms would aid in defense and protection and is a Second Amendment right that should be permitted as these brave men and women do protect us everyday.”
