"Jesus guns" - January 19, 2010, 03:18 PM

U.S. military officials have launched an investigation after it was revealed coded Bible passages have been inscribed on high-powered rifle sights being used in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers.

Lawyer and former air force officer Michael Weinstein said the inscriptions play into the hands of those who say the U.S. is on a 'crusade' against Islam.

God, I <3 Trijicons sights.... Opps.
First pair of after-markets, went on the Glock 19, now they are on all my off-duty, and personal weapons.

“Forgiveness is between them and God. It's my job to arrange the meeting.”



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Anyone else thinking...BFD? I've seen more messages to convert Muslims to Protestant Christianity in 5 seconds of watching Fox News than this.

I doubt they will lose their contract over this.
If anything, they will recall or remanuf., and redistribute.
Or just change their name like Blackwater did.

My question...what difference does it make?

I like to know where my money is going before I spend it, so I would be concerned as a private consumer but the government gave the contract so what is the difference what the thoughts of the owners are?

Yeah I think it's pretty fucking dumb. I doubt anyone will be giving up their ACOG anytime soon over this. Personally I'd rather have a little verse about Jesus than meet him anytime soon.

Has anyone at the company admitted that it was a conscious attempt to codify Bible references in their model numbers? Either way, what on earth does "JN3:18" mean by itself? Nothing, nothing at all. People are hilariously silly: silly to think that if you inscribe "JN3:18" on something, you will somehow harness Jesus' approval; silly to think that if you have "JN3:18" inscribed on something that it will have any influence on the daily affairs at all.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

yeah..They actually admitted it and proud of it. They said that it has been their practice since the start f the company and it was the companies founding father who was a very religious man. Im saying BFD! If someone who owns an ACOG has a big problem with it, PM or EMAIL me! I'll be glad to take it off your hands for a discounted price! I think the news is blowing this WAY out of proportion. A "Jesus Rifle"? But, battles have started with less. Jihad hate us and our religion and it is already a religious crusade against us. It doesnt make a frikin difference what s written on the side of anything we own. Bottom line - they want us all dead..

Well MF's! Here's a message to ya. You can scream all the religious rhetoric all you want. But its all fun and games till you in the sights of an ACOG.
