Scriptures on guns has had an effect!

I posted on my blog for the first time since last Summer.

http://feeling-bloggy.blogspot.com/

I have gotten pretty good at being simply amused by the nonsense around me, but this foolishness got me riled up again. It's bad enough to have that stuff poured at me from all over, but to put it on my guns!? Ugh. I guess I'll have to go back to foreign makes.

That's why I won't drink Lucky Lager beer. Little hidden messages under the caps and shit. Quit shoving it down my throat already.

This was in the political forum, I believe. There was outrage, real and made up. You can probably expect the same here.

Silly and unnecessary but as long as the sight-makers aren't charging extra for this "service" it doesn't really matter.

Well, it is not the actual scripture, but only a reference to the book/chapter/verse, and that is coded to shorten it. If no one had said they were scripture references, I never would have guessed it. It looks more like a manufacturers' part number. Perhaps if I were more religious, I'd have recognized the alpha characters as book references to the Bible, but I have enough trouble with State abbreviations for the Post Office.

On the other hand, it would be pretty damned funny to have a link to "Thou shalt not kill" on a gunsight. Alternatively, if there is a God, would He approve of putting His message on gun parts? What were they thinking?

It all seems pretty silly, but now that the secret is out, the military (the customer) is right to be outraged and demand either a HUGE discount, or that it be removed. As a taxpayer, I vote for a huge discount. The government should get all their money back and be done with it. I guarentee that would teach all other companies not to even consider doing something similar.

"Secret Jesus Bible Codes"

Seriously? That's the best they could come up with? A Dan Brown-esque title?

You have a Trijicon ACOG scope? Nice.

I, personally, could not care less. They could paint them pink and put "Hello Kitty" stickers all over them. They're head and shoulders above their competition.

Re: Scriptures on guns has had an effect!

Has anyone done a statistical analysis to determine if the guns with Bible verses were used with a higher kill rate than guns without Bible-encoded sights? Are any of the verses in particular killing words?
