Trust is a two way street. If our government doesn’t trust us and those who have volunteered to protect our homeland, how are we to trust our government?


Dishonored and Disrespected: Obama Disarmed US Marines at Inaugural Parade: ”

A new administration policy?

Dishonored and disarmed: Bolts are clearly missing from these Marine rifles during President Obama’s inauguration parade. This is an unmistakable insult to the honor of the Marine Corps. (Bob Owens)

During the Obama Inaugural last month the administration disarmed the US Marines marching in the parade.
The Examiner reported:

‘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.

Wondering if this may be an inauguration policy of long standing that transcends administrations, Gun Rights Examiner made a cursory search and found something even more curious. In the 2009 Inaugural Parade, the United States Navy marched with rifles that had not been so disabled

It’s not the first time the Obama Administration disarmed US Marines at an event.
