PolitiFact checks Bob Graham's claim about 'Docs vs. Glocks' gun bill

Former Florida Democratic governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham appeared on MSNBC's "Hardball" last week, where he continued his criticisms of Gov. Rick Scott and Scott's conservative agenda.

PolitiFact Florida decided to check a claim from Graham about HB 155, the "Docs vs. Glocks" bill, which Scott signed into law. Graham said that -- as a result of the law -- Florida is now "prohibiting doctors to talk -- particularly pediatricians -- to talk to their patients about gun safety in the home."

Is that true?
