OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) - An Oklahoma state senator wants to make sure the state's national guard troops can carry concealed weapons on Oklahoma Military Department property. 

It's already happening due to an executive order issued earlier this year by Governor Mary Fallin. A bill by Senator Frank Simpson in the next legislative session seeks to make it permanent. The primary motivation is to prevent a tragedy like the one that happened at a Tennessee recruiting center last July when three Marines and a sailor were killed.
