Gun Firm Engraves Biblical Verse Onto Assault Rifle In A Bid To Stop Terrorism

Let he who is without sin fire off the first round.

If high power assault rifles were available when the Apostles roamed the earth, Jesus would have probably opted for an AR-15.

Well, at least that’s the only way of explaining the latest product of one US gun manufacturer, which comes etched with a biblical verse in a bid to deter terrorists from using it.

Customised by Florda-based firm Spike’s Tactical, its new AR-15 ‘Crusader Rifle’ is described as a ‘lightweight mid-length rifle, with “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle” from Psalm 144:1 engraved right above the clip, with an image of a cross and shield on the left of it.

Lovers of guns and Christianity will also be glad to know the gun’s safety lever has three settings: Pax Pacis’ (Peace), ‘Bellum’ (War), and ‘Deus Vult’ (God Wills It). The holy trinity of high calibre weapons.

Yes, because that's what will stop all the domestic Jihadists - a religiously-motivated attempt at marketing a firearm. Allow us to take our tongues out of our cheeks for a moment long enough to call this a seriously bad idea, and one which we’re betting would more likely stoke the fires of fundamentalism than wash them out.

Besides, who says terrorists are the biggest threat? Statistically speaking, Americans who own firearms are about 4.5 times more likely to be shot than those without.

And everyone knows, keeping a Bible in your top pocket is the safest way to stop a bullet, right? Not taking a piece of biblical scripture and engraving it on your firearm.
