  • President Barack Obama’s debate comments have rattled the bayonet industry.

    In the final debate last night, President Obama shot down Mitt Romney’s claims that the military’s artillery needed a facelift.

    "You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed," President Obama retorted.

    Bayonet manufacturers believe that bayonets are still viable weapons today.

    Dan Riker, a spokesperson for Bayonets, Inc. said that he found the president’s comments “ignorant—because our soldiers still use bayonets."

    1. Absolutely FT Potus said it because Mitt’s assertion was so dumb. He applied it to something people could relate to. And he made an even bigger fool out of a man who is easy to ridicule. 1916, really. My father was 4 years old in1916. If he were living he would have cracked up at that remark.

    2. The bayonet is still used in the Army as part of close quarters combat training. Basic trainees are still required to do the bayonet assault course. Besides the military still needs it just in case they run out of ammo

    3. If Mitt had said it, the bayonet company would have presented him a commemorative bayonet. They are just upset, because MY President was smart enough to respond Mitt, in a way that made sense.

    4. The president did not say there were no bayonet use, he stated there where fewer bayonets, and horses….and compared to 1916 (which is what he was doing) is a true statement. Now the Bayonet Community is upset, what it`s going to disrupt the ever growing bayonet sales! HUH, he also said fewer horses, so I guess now the horse community is going to be upset also. Mr Ed will stomp in his disapproval, Please!
