A new report says contract guards who protect federal facilities are receiving uneven training on responding to shootings like the one last month at the Washington Navy Yard. The report was released Wednesday by the Government Accountability Office. A summary of the report was presented at a House subcommittee hearing on securing federal facilities. The report says officials at five guard companies said their guards had not received training on what to do when a gunman is opening fire. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
