312. Calm down
Before you stroke out...

The shorthand notation of bible verses have been on the optics for over 2 decades. They were not put on there illegally, nor are they hidden in some hard to reach place. My husband's ACOG has ACOG4X32JN8:12 clearly inscribed on the side. You don't need a magnifying glass to see it. The manufacturer wasn't doing something sneaky to proselytize to the military. My husband, an atheist, didn't even know what the hell it represented and now that he knows, doesn't give a shit. If the DOD wants a special run made with scripture free optics, they're going to have to pay more money or they can just scratch it off. It's not Trijicon's responsibility to make sure you aren't offended by a JN12 reference. They sold a legal product and the DOD purchased it, evidently without asking what those numbers meant. Now if you really hate our soldiers, you can go ahead and suggest that every ACOG be immediately ripped off the rails of every rifle and our soldiers can go back to using iron sights. Somehow, I don't think they'd agree with you.
