Not Enough

Senate Republican will roll out bill to arm troops at military facilities | TheHill
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) will introduce legislation allowing troops to carry guns on military facilities, in the wake of a shooting in Tennessee that left four Marines dead. 
Johnson's office said the Wisconsin Republican, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, will offer a proposal that would get rid of regulatory hurdles prohibiting troops from carrying firearms on military installations.
It's not going to be enough for Congress to "get rid of regulatory hurdles", they need to overcome the inertia of the Brass who are so risk-averse that the idea of a soldier having a gun under less than strictly controlled circumstances causes pants-shitting hysteria.
