OLYMPIA — Washington voters appear confused about a pair of contradictory gun initiatives that will be on the November ballot and could approve both this fall, a new survey suggests.

If that happens, the courts may have to sort out initiatives 591 and 594, which deal very differently with the question of background checks for gun buyers.

I-591 would allow background checks to be expanded only as part of a new national standard.
