348. I would appreciate it if you would
Stop calling me a "Fucking CLUELESS moran!!!" particularly, when you are not in possession of the facts.

It is not illegal for Trijicon to put a scripture reference on their products. The scopes that are sold to the military were purchased under a NDI/COTS contract. They are commercial off the shelf optics you or I could purchase if we were so inclined. They are not military specific. If the DOD had done due diligence, they would have asked what the purpose of the numbers/letters were and could have opted out or contracted for a specific run using new forms that excluded the scripture reference. They didn't and that is not Trijicon's fault.

As you so belligerently pointed out, the majority of the population doesn't know or care what those 5 or 6 figures means. They have no power over the optics, nor the soldier using them. They only have meaning if you grant them meaning.
