Trijicon

Trijicon, a supplier for rifle sights to the US Military says it has 'always' added New Testament references...



In August of 2005 Trijicon was awarded a $660 million dollar, multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 of its Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG) to the U.S. Marine Corps. According to Trijicon, the ACOG is "designed to function in bright light, low light or no light conditions," and is "ideal for combat due to its high degree of discrimination, even among multiple moving targets." At the end of the scope's model number, you can read "JN8:12", which is a reference to the New Testament book of John, Chapter 8, Verse 12, which reads: "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (King James Version) (ABC News)

or a PDF of the entire article.

One thing the article says is that "It allows the Mujahedeen, the Taliban, al Qaeda and the insurrectionists and jihadists to claim they're being shot by Jesus rifles," he said.

...and there's a problem with that???



I say "Good on ya, Trijicon!!"


BTW, all of the verses refer to "light" - which makes sense for a company that makes optics. The Media makes it out like the verses refer to God pressing his <SMITE> button - certainly NOT the case.

- The company, however, says it will not stop inscribing their consumer products with the biblical references. They are, as the company says on its website, "a reflection of our company values."
