    The Few, the Proud, the Untrusted?

    Got this in an email. Talk about an insult to the Corps.

    What a pile of BS. What exactly are you artificially getting upset over?

    Who actually gives one iota of a poop if they're an intelligent, rational being?
    In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.
    Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
    This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.

    Kind of sad that the event organizers don't trust the Marines. The idea that Obama had anything to do with the decision is a little ridiculous.

    I found it funny that at the bottom of the article, they recommended articles about Beyonce's Illuminati sign at the Superbowl and "Government prepares for war with the people, and mass media approves."

    Typical crazies.

    Id like to think that the blowback from this brought up so many angry marines that it is going to seem like a good idea that they cant fire the guns.

    Am I the only one who has no idea what this is about? Is it strictly sth that only Americans (which I am not) can understand?

    So, in short: the internet.

    It's about pro-military/gun wackos being completely paranoid over ridiculous non-issues and using it to cry about suffering repressive measures from the man.

    As if the President himself has anything even remotely to do with a decision like that. Not that that stops people from spinning it that way and blowing things waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of proportion.

    When it comes to an event like an inauguration address, that's like saying the President decides what the desert at the after-party will be.

    Shouldn't those who are pro military listen to the commander in chief?

    Of course not, cause he's a Socialist, Communist, Nazi, secret-muslim Kenyan who's trying to take away our guns so he can lead the Chinese army against us!

    And if they left the bolts in the weapons, I am sure some pro-gun activist would say this was Obama's way of mobilizing the military against citizens. Enough of the bullshit. Does it really matter?!
