SCHOOL EMPLOYEES AND GUNS

(AP) - Two of the four employees who have agreed to carry guns at a rural Ohio school apparently have law enforcement backgrounds.

The Bryan Times reports that one of the employees who plans to carry a gun is a retired police officer, while another is currently a part-time officer.

OHIO - AFFORDABLE CARE

Mental health professionals will be required to report any patient who they believe to be a threat to use a gun illegally.
