A police officer runs with his weapon drawn on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Wednesday. A soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial was fatally shot by an unknown gunman, who then entered Parliament, opened fire there and was himself killed. There was also a shooting at a mall nearby, and authorities were seeking possibly two additional gunmen.
If I-591 passes along with I-594, which would expand background checks, the issue could go to the courts.
