Factual error: After the troops are mobilized to fight against the Brotherhood and guard the cure clinics, they make a big show of them turning in their M16s and other metallic items and getting their plastic weapons so Magneto can't use the metal against them. But they wouldn't have had their M16s, to begin with; you pick up your weapon after you arrive for mobilization at your unit. They would have shown up unarmed and then had the plastic weapons issued to them right after they reported for duty. (Most likely, the scene was made just to get the point across to the audience that they need to get rid of all metal and to look flashy). Prior to the President responding to Magneto's declaration of war by mobilizing the troops, the cure clinics were guarded by civilian law enforcement, not US troops.
