I am an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran of two tours. I have been reading about the controversy over Trijicon and the Bible verses.

I thought these sights were meant to allow warfighters to acquire point-of-aim faster and with both eyes open. In other words, these sights were meant for battle. Nowadays, it seems it is all about pleasing the American Civil Liberties Union.

For those who are wringing their hands about this issue, you really ought to be asking yourselves if you and your soldiers know how to use them.

Religious-based sights? All I care about is whether I can hit what I aim at. So should you.
