Didn't know the Marines had to take the bolts out of their rifles for the Inaugural, an email forwarded to Gun Rights Examiner from a United States Marine Corps source observed. Wonder if someone can explain why [they] would be marching in the inaugural parade with no bolts in their rifles!
The email linked to a YouTube video of the 57th Presidential Inaugural Parade, embedded in this column, featuring Bravo Company Marines from the Marine Barracks Washington. Sure enough, the observation in the email is confirmed by watching the video, with screen shots provided in the photo and slide show accompanying this article.
The few, the proud, the ... untrusted?

Loathed by their own Commander in Chief
The foreign agent in the White Hut doesn’t trust Americans.
What does the administration know about the military that we don’t know? Hmmmm???
The allegation that anyone with conservative leadership ability is being assassinated is given more credence by this action against the Marines. It has been alleged that Kyle was deliberately targeted, another weapons maker has been killed, etc. — not a good sign.
0bamugabe doesn’t trust the Marine Corps. That speaks encyclopedias.
There are NO patriotic Americans that the undocumented
First Moslem-Marxist-byVoteFraud trusts.
The Moslem Brotherhood would have been allowed weapons.
Terrorists are allowed weapons (Fast & Furiously).
But US troops are not even permitted weapons when
THEY are in the line of fire.
And the US Congress loves him for it (as they cash
their endless checks and specials deals, with their
Russian honeypots and teen aged hookers).
Paranoia is sooooo unbecoming...
i’ve heard at least 10 from that small club in the last year
and now that we find out that he’s trying to put a muslim in charge of the CIA...
He knows what we know.
Marines take a sacred oath in front of God Almighty Himself to protect and defend the Constitution of the Unites States against ALL enemies foreign and domestic, they did not swear an oath of personal fealty to a man who might well be an enemy BOTH foreign and domestic.
He’s afraid that one of the Marines would deliver the country from the evil that is him.
Well, if he does not trust them then the I do.God bless the Marines.
Sadat was assassinated by members of his own military.
That’s all Bronco cares about.
I’m getting emotional after looking at my sons ( I consider my son’s brothers-in-arms my sons) without their weapons ready and I think about the guys in Afghanistan having to go on patrol with their hands tied with their ROE, and more so of the 1/8 Marines in Beirut who were in the same situation as the ambassador in Benghazi.
Those Marines in the parade are willing to die for the one who ordered their bolts removed.
This is unacceptable.
Loathed by their own Commander in Chief”
Judging by the looks on all of the Marines’ faces, I’m wondering if the feeling is mutual.
As Carrie Heffernan on “The King of Queens” would say, that show of mistrust must be a “kick in the giblets” for those proud Marines.
Thanks to all of our Armed Forces who serve no matter what may come. May God bless them all.
the more i think about this, the more it torques me off
we send them to their possible death, entrusting them with safe guarding our freedoms... but they cannot be trusted with weapons in public?
yea... I’m starting to stew over this
If you look back, you will note that from the very beginning, Obama has made the military disarm when they meet him. He’s the first president tomdo this, to my knowledge.
