Obama confiscates blasters from Stormtroopers during White House photo op

I saw photos of Imperial Stormtroopers making a photo op at the White House, and something struck me immediately as curious.  The Stormtroopers had nothing in their hands.  Instead of gripping blasters, as they always do, their hands were nervously hovering around their groins.

Obama disarmed fictional characters with fictional weapons.  How weird is that?

So what is the symbolism here?  Is it...

a) That gun control is so overboard that we are now confiscating even toy guns?

b) A metaphor for how Obama is disarming the military?

c) A different metaphor for Obama's embrace of an all-powerful centralized government?  Interesting that he invited Stormtroopers but no members of the rebellion.  Perhaps he approves of the Empire's inclusiveness for gay and lesbian Imperials.

By the way, I'll bet Obama would probably enjoy the Donald Trump Star Wars video.
