The bolts are conspicuously missing in the video. Not easy to photoshop, so the video is probably real. I can't imagine a situation where a Marine would be carrying a rifle, even a ceremonial one, without all its parts. Nor can I imagine a troop of civilian actors or enthusiasts failing to insist on realism when portraying a Marine company on parade, if that ever even happens.

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!”
