Megan's Law?

I didn't think I had time to post anything tonight, but then I read this.

I suppose everyone who has seen a doctor show has seen some resuscitation scene where the doctor puts the paddles on the patient's chest and gives them a big shot of electricity to restart the heart. Anyway, lately automated external defibrillators have become inexpensive, simple and sophisticated enough to be practical for use in police cars and private establishments.

What else could such an establishment have handy?

And would they dare? Good ideas have a way of turning into bad laws. Turn our unholy alliance of do-gooders and ambulance chasers loose and the next thing you know waitresses and bartenders will have to have EMT training.
