We posted an update to Tuesday’s story about the Trijicon rifle sight bible verse controversy on Military.com this afternoon.
Looks as if the New Zealand will be removing the citations from existing sights and will make a request that further ones do not onclide the New Testiment verse callouts.
New Zealand defense force spokesman Maj. Kristian Dunne said Trijicon would be instructed to remove the inscriptions from further orders of the gun sights for New Zealand and the letters would be removed from gun sights already in use by troops.
“The inscriptions … put us in a difficult situation. We were unaware of it and we’re unhappy that the manufacturer didn’t give us any indication that these were on there,” Dunne said. “We deem them to be inappropriate.”
The story also says the Aussies are assessing what to do.
