“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 (see 1:24 into that video plus the final slide).
This raises the question of why the administration felt it necessary to make this change now, particularly with concerns being raised about military involvement in domestic affairs, litmus tests on top brass willingness to fire on American citizens alleged by a heretofore prominent and credible Nobel Prize nominee, a “terrorism” policy that allows for assassinating Americans without due process, rising concerns over deployment of domestic drones, and publicized opposition among many in the USMC to presidential policies such as women in combat, as well as having been the most resistant military branch to ending “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Add to this concerns over administration agencies buying up ammunition in massive quantities, the renewed destruction of expended military ammunition brass in contravention of the Defense Appropriations Act, and Obama’s post-election confidence in dropping the mask on his previously “under the radar” citizen disarmament plans, and the change becomes another piece that fits in a puzzle that’s forming an increasingly disturbing picture.
Unsurprisingly, a Google news feed search finds no reports on inaugural Marine disarmament in the “Authorized Journalist” media. Chances are, most of them aren’t qualified to notice such things, and that it doesn’t serve the agenda of those who are to point such things out.

OBAMA MORE HATED THAN HITLER.
Hitler was NOT so hated that he could not even trust his own troops to not shoot him. Obama is such a rotten traitor that unlike Hitler, who had thousands of his troops march by him daily, all with weapons loaded and never needing to worry about it; – Obama is such a rotten proven traitor to this country that he DOES have to worry about it, and disable their weapons even with the secret service there to protect him.
This follows ALL leaders. Ahmadenijad has no such worries, Saddam had no such worries, Stalin had no such worries, and not even Chavez has such worries. What about Fidel Castro? Nope, no worries there either.
DOES THIS NOT SAY IT ALL? Obama is hated by true Americans more so than any leader has been hated by his people EVER in world history.
TRAITOR TRAITOR TRAITOR TRAITOR TRAITOR,
And traitors get SHOT.
Mr. Stone, I’ll give you 7:1 in Vegas(if it is legal) on whether the Bush41 cabal gave Obama a lobotomy in Connecticut, 1977-1979. Nobody could be so blankly traitorous to the people who supported him, and do it consistently across the board unless they had some custom work done. Nobody could continuously allow the HAARP, 9-11, Fukushima, GoMoil well, Wall Street, etc. attacks unless their mind could not perceive or detect higher thinking.
Bolt actions being removed from the parades’ rifles. That is funny.
Actually, the mandatory sentence prescribed for traitors is hanging by the neck until dead.
Why not just give ’em sticks to march with?
Freedom is not having to have a bodyguard.
ha ha the mental administration can’t even trust it’s own armed forces. america is eating itself up, killing itself from within like the roman empire did by paranoid decision making and overreaction. delusions of world domination, like a roman emperor they tread down people until they are all alone and insane.
kinda reflects the snake eating its tail…
making Barry S…a faux-Pa
seen snake in escape from LA
This is actually a good thing as I see it. An intellect pResident of the worst kind disrespecting the front-line branch of the United States Military…balls!!
I have a 3 path solution:
1. All Americans STOP paying income taxes beginning immediately. Cut off the government’s support like taking the allowance from a child who misbehaves! Tell your friends, co workers, everyone. 300 MILLION Americans, the vast majority law abiding and willing to take a stand for their country. 100,000 delusional politicians and corporate greed mongers hijacking our country and freedoms. We began life with an intrinsic ability to feed, clothe, shelter and defend ourselves and to form unity with other humans to create a local economy and live in harmony with nature. Those abilities will never die.
2. Befriend and support your law enforcement officers and our sons, daughters, brothers and sisters of the military, BUT NOT BEFORE they have a clear understanding of the agenda of the citizens of the United States of America…AND THE WORLD, versus the agenda of the US government and Corporate 1% NWO. The men and women of the armed forces who bravely defend us need to know whom they are defending us from and for what reason(s). They need to be educated, not brainwashed,
3. Rebuild the dream! Who are the real contractors and builders of this great nation? YOU and ME! Designers, teachers, builders, artists, FARMERS!!, mothers, fathers, craftspeople, security, firefighters, REAL doctors, ministers…Americans need self-sufficiency skill-sets before they can become independent of their government. There are teachers ready to do their jobs and military ready to protect their mothers and fathers on their home turf!
Mike My name is Steve and I would like to say for the record NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER trust a cop just like the frog who “trusted the scorpion” never trust a cop active retired dead or alive never trust a cop and as far as the military goes they can be partially fogiven for their youthful brainwashed ignorance once they have come back to the light. Make no mistake about it no “soldier” has fought for my freedom or yours as they amount to nothing more than hired guns(mercenaries,hired murderers) who have killed INNOCENTS around the world for corporate america.
Disabled rifles? Now that’s an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one. Sounds like someone’s paranoia is showing.
Obama will be killed just like the other SacrificalKings like Kennedy and Luther king, they were used until their use was up then the beast tuned on them. I pity them for their position in the pyramid, no different than the most ignorant of sheeple.
