Confidence Man

I had to do a double-take on this. I wasn’t sure it was real:

Ben “Mookie” Thomas, a former Navy Seal and spokesman for Spike’s Tactical gunsplains that he wanted a rifle that no devout Muslim would touch.

The AR-15 assault rifle is laser-etched on one side with a Knights Templar Long Cross – a symbol of the Christian Crusades to reclaim the Holy Land from Muslims – and Psalm 144:1 on the other side: “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

“Off the cuff I said I’d like to have a gun that if a Muslim terrorist picked it up a bolt of lightning would hit and knock him dead,” Mookie said.

I love the fact that someone can have a semi-automatic rifle and act like he’s 8 years old. Lightning bolts? Is that supposed to be funny?

Real terrorists won’t give a flying fuck about the inscription. A good bit of them can only read Arabic. And they don’t care what it says even if they could-does it shoot? Do I have ammo for it? These are questions that an actual Muslim terrorist would ask if he somehow got hold of one before he went about his business of frightening civilians.

…it has three nifty settings on the safety selector: “Peace,” “War” and “God Wills It.

Christ, he sounds like a terrorist, doesn’t he? But this piker really isn’t interesting in killing Mooslims. In the grand old American tradition, it’s just a money-making scheme:

You can pick up one of Mookie’s Christian weapons for $1,395.

I took a look around to see what your standard AR-15 costs. About $800-1000. So that’s a nice markup for some bullshit.

New profiles in Christianity. I feel the love, don’t you?

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
