Tulsa, Okla. - Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe talked on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show about last week's Fort Hood deadly shooting and what can be done to prevent future shootings on U.S. Army bases.
He says for starters, the Army should let the soldiers on base carry guns.
"These guys over there are at the mercy of someone who's out on a rampage... because the perpetrators of these crimes know that they're not armed out there," Inhofe said.
Besides that, he says there needs to be more study on Post Traumatic Stress and depression, to maybe pinpoint who's at risk of being a shooter.
He says the Army's former Vice Chief of Staff, General Peter Chiarelli, talked about the issue a couple of year ago, but not much was done about it.
