I doubt that is what he is saying. Modern military training certainly covers most of what is required but it certainly isn't 100% for situations like this. There is more to be prepared for than just knowing how to handle a gun and avoid friendly casualties.
In my perfect world, someone with a military background could take "fast track" training that fills in those gaps and get their CCW/CHL. Combine this with an elimination of most gun free zones and you'd have a very effective emergency response solution. (assuming a good percentage of people opt in to do this and carry)
