THOSE who "guard" the President and or the event are "ARMED" with "LIVE" ammo . No military participating in the "CEREMONY" ever have "LIVE" ammo. for ANY parade, political event etc. USA military do not walk or march around this nation "ARMED" with LIVE ammo unless they have a "MISSION" or security guard assignment . stick to the facts .

They don't have ammo, but their weapons are operational.

He's gutted their healthcare, plans to cut their pay and apparently, doesn't trust them either. David Codrea over at Gun Rights Examiner points out that Marines marching in President Obama's second inaugural parade recently were caring rifles without bolts, meaning they were removed.

“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!”
