A victim of the 2009 Ft. Hood shooting said on "Your World" today that what happened in Chattanooga is "an act of terror."

Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who survived being wounded seven times by Nidal Hasan, told Charles Payne that the White House needs to call this act of violence what it truly is. 

"As long as they drag their feet, people die," Lunsford said. "Now we predicted this would happen years ago. It happened here in the United States and in England as well."

He added that the country needs to learn from the mistakes of the past.

"We need to arm our military in all military facilities, like we did before so they can protect themselves, because all military personnel, be it if you're retired or you're active, we have targets on our back," Lunsford stated.

Lunsford also said that the "war is here on U.S. soil" and it won't go away until the threat is eliminated.
