The AR-15 is a lightweight, intermediate cartridge magazine-fed, air-cooled Armalite Rifle with a rotating lock bolt, actuated by a piston within the bolt carrier or by conventional long/short stroke piston operation. It has been produced in many different versions, including numerous semi-automatic and select fire variants. It is manufactured with extensive use of aluminum alloys and synthetic materials.

The AR-15 was first built in 1959 by ArmaLite as a small arms rifle for the United States armed forces. Because of financial problems, ArmaLite sold the design to Colt. After modifications, the redesigned rifle was adopted as the M16 rifle. In 1963, Colt started selling the semi-automatic version of the rifle for civilians as the Colt AR-15. Although the name "AR-15" remains a Colt registered trademark, variants of the firearm are made, modified, and sold under various names by multiple manufacturers.

The Makers of a New AR-15 Want to Keep it Away From Terrorists. So They Etched it With a Bible Verse

The Crusader AR-15
Gun manufacturer Spike’s Tactical has introduced a new AR-15, which it is determined to keep out of the hands of Islamic terrorists. To that end, they etched the magazine with a bible verse.

Oh, and the AR-15’s name is “The Crusader.”

Company spokesman Ben “Mookie” Thomas, a former Navy Seal and former Blackwater security contractor, explained:

“Right now and as it has been for quite some time, one of the biggest threats in the world is and remains Islamic terrorism. We wanted to make sure we built a weapon that would never be able to be used by Muslim terrorists to kill innocent people or advance their radical agenda.”

The semi-automatic rifle’s magazine is etched with the words of Psalm 144:1:

”Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

The safety selector features the words, “Peace” for safe, “War” for semi-automatic, and “God wills it.” 

The Crusader AR-15
The left side of the new rifle also features a cross and shield:

As to be expected, The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida (CAIR) isn’t happy:

“Americans have tragically witnessed over 250 mass killings in 2015 alone, which amounts to more than one per each day. Only one of those killings involved a self-proclaimed Muslim. Sadly, this manufacturer’s fancy new gun won’t do anything to stop the real threat in America: the escalating problem of gun violence. This is just another shameful marketing ploy intended to profit from the promotion of hatred, division, and violence.”

The Crusader retails for $1,395 on the company’s website.
