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. Officials in the Montpelier school district caused a stir last week after announcing plans to arm a handful of its non-teaching employees with handguns. 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

(AP) - A new study shows Ohio could be poised to reap a windfall under the federal Affordable Care Act. The report says expanding Medicare in Ohio could net the state $1.4 billion over the next decade. Most of that money would come to Ohio in the early years of the Medicaid expansion.

MURDER SUICIDE

NY GUN CONTROL

(AP) - New York has become the first state to dramatically stiffen its gun laws after last month's massacre at a Connecticut elementary school. With Gov.

The law includes a tougher assault weapons ban and provisions to try to keep guns away from mentally ill people who make threats. Mental health professionals will be required to report any patient who they believe to be a threat to use a gun illegally.

KENTUCKY SCHOOL SHOOTING
