A normal Washington workweek was thrown into chaos Monday after contractor Aaron Alexis opened fire on workers at the Navy Yard, killing twelve. We'll look at how those shootings may impact the national debate over gun control. And we'll explore the history of the Navy Yard and its early role in protecting Washington. Plus, we'll bring you the second part in our series on climate change and the future of the Chesapeake Bay's Smith Island.
