Now that there's been yet another deadly shooting at Fort Hood, some lawmakers and others are again asking if it's time to change weapons restrictions on military bases around the country.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:

For the most part, soldiers and troops are not allowed to carry weapons on post. Unless they are military police, security personnel or an exception's been made.

Rep Stockman (R-TX):  "It's caused more harm. It's caused more problems not having people armed. And I would say there'd be many people alive today had that not been rescinded 20 years ago."

Even before this latest shooting at Fort Hood, Texas Republican Congressman Steve Stockman proposed changing this policy that's been around for more than two decades.

The Army Chief of Staff told a Senate Committee that the restrictions are appropriate and armed military police provide the necessary level of protection.
