Ok. While I do NOT, under any circumstances, trust Obama, I have to say that this is actually not uncommon. I was in one of the bands that marched in Reagan's first Inaugural parade and the marines in that one were carrying unloaded weapons. It's not safe to carry a loaded weapon when you're doing the kind of drills with it that the marines do.
So, Ms. Pavlich, get your information straight. This is the kind of reporting that makes all conservatives look like nuts.
