IF (and I'm not certain we have gotten the full story on this deal) the Honchos in Washington D & C are that nervous about being in close proximity to US Marines, maybe THEY need to take a cursory look at the "status quo" and consider REMEDIAL action(s). I'm certainly not implying (YES I AM) that the Gubmint is 100% wrong, but SOMEBODY, somewhere must be concerned enough to even consider this type action. Talk about "runnin scared"?

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!”
