Skip to comments.Disabled Marine rifles at inauguration signal shift in administration policy
Posted on 02/09/2013 7:05:31 PM PST by SWAMPSNIPER
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.
A single other time in my life I’ve seen the same was Afghan National Army greeting their President Karzai. I thought A-stan is a real cesspool and Karzai must be a real POS with such a level of trust towards his troops.
Well, it is coming to a country near you.
Just another display of contempt for our Armed Forces by their Community Organizer-In-Chief.Well,contempt and distrust to be precise.
Somebody get that Jarhead’s name. He’s holding his rifle at a 20 degree angle so that the photographer can see that there is no bolt in his rifle. What a putz. s/
Sadat was worthy of least some respect.
Those guys had to be pissed off.
There is no profanity adequate to express what we think about this outrage.
I believe Patty Hearst did something similar while she was a bank robbing captive...
I think the question is better asked..
What does the military know about the administration that we don’t know? Hmmmmm???
I got to clean the guns, LOL, they want me to feel useful.
When they went to assassinate Sadat, he stood up. I believe this was to prevent those around him from dying.
Were Bronco in that role what would he do?
It is more than just that little barry bastard boy loathes our military personnel; he knows he is the enemy domestic and they are sworn to defend against such enemies as he knows he IS.
I'm surprised they didn't put orange plugs in the barrels as well...............
It seems that our president is afraid that his tactics are so outside of proper that he feels anyone would take a shot at him. And the fact he has increased Secret Service for presidents for life seems to confirm his intentions are intended to rile the public. You know. Like what dictators do.
There is one glimmer to this scenario, however: if the sonofabitch keeps this up, this open disdain for our service personnel, perhaps when he tries to employ them to kill and disarm Americans, he will have no obedience to his unConstitutional orders.
The whole place was surrounded by snipers............it makes you wonder who obama trust and why.
I saw a video (no idea where it is now) where the hostess at a dinner encouraged the diners to hurry with their meal so that their knives and forks could be picked up (confiscated?) before obama arrived.
They could keep their spoons, if I remember correctly.
Personally, I wouldn’t want to get near enough to him to use any kind of tool on him.
If I saw him burst into flame, I wouldn’t p!ss on him to put it out.
No Bolts started with Billy “Put Some Ice On It” Clinton.
I’ve never served in the military. I regret that. I understand that when Marines are issued their rifles they swear an oath that in part say’s “This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one is mine. Without me my rifle is useless. Without my rifle I am useless’’. When you give Marines a rifle that doesn’t work, what does that say?
SAC HQ “sequestered” a very large number of active duty military members with exceptionally high security clearances, during a “Carter visitation” to Offutt AFB.
And none of us were openly armed with DOD issued weapons!
Carter was the first POTUS who needed to do this, to my knowledge.
Obama is only the second. And yes, it is needfull, from an unconstitutional, anti-USA CINC perspective.....
This -——This is a travesty. This is—I am speechless. This is not the action of a man but of a scared child. Can you imagine Reagan requesting his Marines weapons be disabled?
I am ashamed
“What does the administration know about the military that we dont know? “
It was Clintoon who “disarmed” all of the military bases, and put all arms under lock and key with administrative controls. This enabled Hassan, but kept the government safe from a coup.
It was reported that US troops had their rifles disabled in a similar manner when Slick Willie visited them in the Balkans...
Allows the appearance of comraderie and trust, but prevents any possibility of their use...
Paranoia, lack of trust, shaming of the military, or Secret Service SOP?
Caligula was assassinated by his own Praetorian Guard.
Just one more bit of proof that Barry’s a (commie) coward.
Yes, but that was Caligula!!! Uhhh, ok, never mind.
Yes, keep tabs on his well-being.
