Cascade Mall shooting: Suspect in custody

Voter Guide: Initiative 1491 — guns and ‘extreme risk protection orders’

If family members, roommates or police are worried someone is a threat to themselves or others, they can get a court order preventing that person from possessing or buying firearms.

Opponents argue it unfairly targets the mentally ill and takes away their rights.
