Gun control is a topic swirling in the hearts and minds of many Americans today. Will restricting the use of firearms help lower the amount of mass shootings? Or will it enable the shooters who procure illegal firearms to meet less resistance? One thing most everyone can agree on: these situations are always going to be a possibility, one way or another. When that happens, an increase in medical training for the average person would severely reduce the loss of life.
Former Army Ranger medic Jessie Milaski has worked as a paramedic for the past four years. “Mass shootings are always going to be a threat,” he says, “but accidents happen too. Someone falls in the shower right through a glass door, you could have a life threatening bleed on your hands. You can’t prevent everything.”
