Wrong biblical message

I have noticed this post by Andrei which covers the "outrage" over the biblical references on the stocks of rifles used by the NZDF.

There is a major problem here in that the wrong biblical reference is on the rifles. Of course the most appropriate is Ezekial 25:17 - the Pulp Fiction version of course (the real Ezekial 25 verse 17 doesn't actually say this but hey, let's remember a great movie scene).
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
I hope Willie had this on his piece when patrolling Kabul.

Ezekiel 9:5 Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion.

More like it....

As I said on the other thread, what a joke!

The muslim world might get a little upset, and the PC world of NZ equally so, but there is a religious reference on the only currency the Taliban trade in:

In God we Trust

Doesn't seem to be a problem then.

Let's try that again.

Exactly Zen. Wayne Mapp should have told them sto stuff off.

There's no problem with the gunsights, proto-religious quotes or not - the only question is: can they do the job? Let the manufacturer do what he likes to his product and take his chances. That's freedom. And purchasers are free to choose whether to buy them or not, and file numbers off them or not. That's also freedom.

This whole debate is, once again, the usual lightweight MSM bullshit, and once again is diverting us from why the guns are there at all, which is - we have an ENEMY that needs to be dealt to, NOW.
I might even write me a slogan of my own, in felt-tip, where they filed the numbers off :)
