News Minute: Here is the latest Ohio news from The Associated Press at 8:40 a.m. EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich has grown increasingly frustrated as he's watched shootings in Las Vegas and Florida _ and closer to home in Cincinnati and his city of Westerville _ fail to move state lawmakers around the country to tighten state gun laws. He says more public pressure should be brought to bear. A Republican state lawmaker says "firearms restrictions will do nothing."
(AP) - A review of state gun laws by The Associated Press found the activism that grew out of the Florida high school shooting earlier this year has not been a catalyst for widespread change. Aside from Florida, no other state dominated politically by Republicans passed sweeping gun-control legislation. Several states did ban bump stocks and pass so-called "red flag" laws, but many others expanded gun rights or took no action at all on firearms.
CINCINNATI (AP) - A bank executive says she urged first responders to a deadly downtown Cincinnati shooting attack to save her life for her two small children. Thirty-seven-year-old Whitney Austin survived some 12 gunshots Sept. 6. She recounted her ordeal in a taped interview that aired Wednesday on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America."
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Their doctors say both major-party candidates for Ohio governor are in good health. Letters from the physicians of Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray were produced at the request of The Associated Press. The two are locked in a close, expensive race this fall to replace Republican Gov. John Kasich, who's term-limited.
