The “Creed of a United States Marine” states that “without my rifle, I am useless,” a doctrine that is almost certain to apply to Imperial stormtroopers.
Yet there they were, in all their luster, at the premiere of “Rogue One” on Saturday night… sans standard issue blaster rifles.

So what gives? Were Hollywood moonbats pushing a gun control message, or perhaps it was a matter of security not wanting replica guns at the event?
Either way, the social media and news websites noted that stormtroopers were toting blasters at the premier of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
