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."
