Barack Obama disarmed the US Marines at the Inaugural parade this year. 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. 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. In March 2012, US Marines were told to leave their weapons outside the tent during Leon Panetta’s speech in Afghanistan. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/201...bama-disarmed-us-marines-at-inaugural-parade/ This is SOP for libs. Clinton did it too but it proves that they are aware of how they are regarded by taxpayers and those who defend the United States Constitution. The best post i've read regarding this states that "Marines took an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic....if you were an enemy of the constitution you would want the Marines disarmed as well."
