Pantex Plant, Texas

The claim: (more than 12,000 plutonium pits, plus up to several hundred weapons awaiting disassembly, including the W69/Short-Range Attack Missile, the W79/8-inch artillery shell, and the B53 gravity bomb) Amarillo, 16,000

What it really is: Pantex Plant is the United States's only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly plant.

The facility has been the site of multiple protests, and currently a 20 acre site located adjacent to the facility called "The Peace Farm" is used as a place of protest and for education about the environment, nuclear proliferation, and peace issues.
