This is the image that the wingnuts are running with.
Here's a photo from the United States Marine Corps showing Marines marching with their ceremonial rifles.
The undoctored photo from the Marines clearly shows that the rifles have their bolts in them.
|If you zoom in, you can see that these rifles still have their bolts in them, clearly looking radically different than the image at the top of the post.|
I don't know--the images that show the rifles with no bolts look doctored to me.
