If a soldier is convicted in a civilian court of a crime which prevents him from possessing a firearm, The army will discharge him.
You would think that. The number of felony waivers that the Army processed to allow people in was in the thousands 2005-2008. Some people convicted of arson, B&E, assault and various other things. We wonder now why we have former soldiers wandering around MT. Rainer with a rifle? I don't wonder why; we do this to ourselves every war.

The Army took these people in without any attempt to restore their rights and then stuck a rifle in their hands. Now the same government is saying that they can't be trusted to own a gun. In some cases they are right.
