There has also been a call to add full-time trauma physicians to emergency response teams. Apparently one was on the San Bernardino ERT and that was a huge plus for the survival of some victims.

The only thing they need do is teach prosecutors to not dismiss felon in possession charges. A year and that will reduce the criminal shootings by half.

Are prosectors dropping such charges currently??
For good cases, which are suppored by convincing evidence of guilt, and with that evidence having been properly-collected by honest cops who didn't violate any suspects' rights in gathering that evidence?

Why would prosecutors drop the charges?

Maybe another reason would be if the "felon" wasn't really a bad guy. Think of a 60 year old man with a pump shotgun in his home for defense, but in 1975 he passed a bad check in an amount exceeding $50 and didn't satisfy the debt within 10 days, so therefore he committed that "felony" for which he got a probation-only sentence (but it's still on his record, and was never expugned, nor did he ever ask for restoration of his gun rights).

Maybe the "felon" is like Martha Stewart-- made a false statement to a government agent?

Or General David Petraeus-- now a convicted felon for sharing classified information with the author of his biography, who became his lover? Is that the kind of "felon" that we need prosecutors to go after aggressively and throw in prison?

Public safety is enhanced by having by more armed citizens out there on the streets, yes, BUT IT'S ALSO ENHANCED by having unarmed persons carrying (or having access to, in vehicles and in their desks at work) first aid kits.

Saving lives isn't just about shooting back. Emergency first aid is a very important thing in combat-- be that battlefield combat or urban street crime combat.

I've taken regular first aid classes, as well as higher level trauma classes intended to treat gunshot wounds and how to stabilize people and transport them, for when bad things happen in places and under conditions where EMT / Paramedic help is not just a couple minutes away.

Project Exile, 1995, Richmond Virginia. Google that.

Start there. Then read the link below.

Think something like that Project Exile might work up there?
