    There are just too many tens of thousands of Marines and soldiers who have been ordered to turn in their rifles to the armory any time Obama showed up for a photo-ops on military installations.

    Even a few weeks ago it was revealed that why the Marines at the Washington Marine Barracks didn't respond to the shooting at the Washington DC Navy Yard was because they had no ammunition for their rifles.

    What's next, gun free zones on military bases ?

    Erm, you're misunderstanding the argument here.

    It's not that somebody is claiming the marines had bolts in the rifles. He's saying this is standard practice and has been for ages. And it does seem to me like something secret service would do. Ceremonial troops aren't there for security, they're there for ceremony. If something goes wrong, having thousands of unbriefed, armed marines with no real command structure or orders regarding how to respond is likely to make things worse, not better.

    That said, I'd wait to hear it from a better source.

    Yes. The problem is that the site publishes lies as facts all the time.

    If you insist.

    It's difficult to find many sources for debunking this idiotic rumor because it gained so little traction among even the fringe of the "mainstream media," most likely because it's so absurd as to defy all logic (doesn't stop APACHERAT from believing it), but here's another one who takes a stab at it:

    U.S. Marines in Inaugural Parade Ordered to Disarm-Under Investigation!

    We have talked to several retired members from different branches of the service who told us that it is not customary for weapons to be loaded during a parade. Under normal circumstances, the firing pins are removed from weapons unless they are taken into battle or used on the firing range.

    It's a "Tuther" organization and a loony political website.

    The left distance themselves from "Veterans Today" just as the right has.

    Hey, not many sites bothered to debunk that idiotic rumor, simply because even most of the nastier right wing websites realized how stupid it was and didn't even bother to run with it.
