Just remember that if the fire dept gets them certified they are esentially a peace officer which means they are not to be trusted if the sh^t hits the fan.

I enjoy that the left is always saying those with training should only be allowed to carry guns. We have people carrying state issued firearms without proper training! I bet I have had more training and range time than many of these firefighters who have had the training they need. Guess I'll go talk to the sheriffs office here.

With my ex, i've probably had more training putting out fires than they have too.

Bureaucracy and liability. They'll figure it out for proper certification with training. No big deal really. They'll do what they have to. Range time and gun-nut veteran war stories and chatter don't matter, despite the time or the whines. Much ado about nothing.
