Disabled Marine rifles at inauguration signal shift in administration policy

Via Cordite In The Morning

 Note there are plenty of ‘trusted’ guns surrounding the president.

Worried much?

“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.

This prompted an internet search to see if others had also noticed, and the Blur-Brain blog had.
“The bolts have been removed from the rifles rendering them unable to fire a round,” the post stated. “Apparently Obama’s Secret Service doesn’t trust the USMC. Simply searching each guy to make sure he didn’t have a live round hidden on him wasn’t enough, they had to make sure the guns were inoperable.

  1. Were their swords were blunted, also? Maybe a cork on the point?

  2. This is a symptom. A symptom of a serious illness - paranoid dictator syndrome .With recent revelation`s of the Obama ' litmus test ' for military officer`s ; " Will you order American citizen`s fired upon ? ". coupled with his having been told " 70 % of the military are not loyal to you ". The criminal cabal that has seized power in America IS capable of anything .

    1. he criminal cabal that has seized power in America IS capable of anything .

      Yes and so are the citizens.

    2. Indeed . The chasm between those who deem themselves ' Rulers ' of America and the citizenry is now a gulf which can never be crossed.

    3. is now a gulf which can never be crossed.

      I believe so and the gulf between the left and right cannot be also.
