Don't Bring an Ax to a Gunfight

Armed EMTs thwart ax-wielding woman who slashed man’s face before smashing station door: police

The Olive Hill Police Department said suspect Kellie Boggs, 44, allegedly attacked an unidentified man with an ax about 1 a.m. Friday, WSAZ reported. The male victim was left with serious injuries to his face and was found in a ditch behind the Carter County EMS station’s west base.

Then she smashed the door to the emergency center, but at least some of the EMTs were armed and held her at gunpoint until police arrived.

The reporter/news outlet repeatedly makes the case that these were EMTs, that is government employees. But are they armed under any authority other than concealed carry licenses? Or is it just that reporters don't like it when regular citizens are armed?

The ax-wielding maniac is being held in the county lockup.
