    Kids are tough...

    I'll add that I don't regret my career choice for a second!

    Yep, I have a couple of demons that keep me warm and tucked in at night to help me sleep better too.... NOT! I know what you mean!

    P.S. is your "circadian rhythm" broken too?

    Close call today...

    Got attacked this morning by a kid who apparantly had been eating all the prescription meds he couild find all night. Got the call as a "poisoning" BTW. He was in a room full of broken glass and furniture, and had a pair of scissors in his pocket. Local LEO (who now gets free gunsmithing for life) Tasered him. Remind me never to run with scissors around her Nobody on our side got hurt.

    This would be the same LEO who investigated Mr. "two shots to the head suicide". I guess she's the same kind of "magnet" I am.

    I've been working as Firefighter/EMT for over 21 yrs and have responded to too many GSW's to remember. Our policy on a known gunshot is to allow police to clear the scene first, its hard to sit two blocks away for 20 minutes until this is done but my safety and that of my crews is number one no matter what. As an officer I will not sacrifice one of us in this type of situation period. As far as concealed carry on duty, that is an individuals decision to make if you are paid you may lose your job if found out even with a permit. One option is wearing body armor, many fire departments or EMS agencies allow this and will provide it, this will offer some protection.

    I believe the best option is to stage and let the guys with guns do their job so we can do ours.

    Just want to add: do I carry or any of my crew members--- Don't ask, don't tell.
