Trijicon, which manufactures gun sights used by the U.S. Military, responded to international outcry and Pentagon concerns by saying it will immediately stop engraving biblical references on gun sights it sells to the military, and will provide the military with 100 free kits to remove existing biblical codes from guns it has already purchased. Guns in the military that currently carry the religious inscriptions may number in the tens of thousands. The Al Jazeera news service in Afghanistan reported that guns bearing Christian references had been provided to some Afghan troops, and that this would provide the Taliban is a propaganda coup. Trijicon, which boasts of its Christian roots on its Web site, has an ongoing contract with the U.S. Marine Corps worth $600 million.
