One report I saw indicated that the shooter had been dishonorably discharged from the Air Force.

Re: No time for Berghdahl

Also, 50 million people who made statements against Bergdahl were not the commander in chief of the military. As for being in a time of war... What war? Only the Congress can declare a state of war, which they have not done in decades.

Dishonorable discharge in itself is an automatic disqualification from owning firearms.
