That (former) law sounds like one <a href="http://yhkuthtsf.com">cotncoced</a> in ivory towers. I can practically hear back in time, I hear doctors shaking their heads as they learn legislators passed such a thing. And muttering under their breaths, or talking with each other, about how that law will surely be ignored once a child of the legislators comes in with a gunshot wound and needs serious and immediate attention.
