Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt has released a statement regarding the deadly fort hood shooting. Blunt says this is a terrible tragedy for all Americans, especially for those who are willing to serve and for their families. He also says military bases on American soil should be the safest place possible for the nation’s servicemen and women and their loved ones. A soldier being treated for mental health issues opened fire yesterday at Fort Hood in Texas killing three people and wounding several others before taking his own life.
