“Spike’s Tactical is marketing an assault rifle it claims was ‘designed to never be used by Muslim terrorists,'” orlandosentinel.com reports. “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.’ The company’s spokesman, former Navy Seal Ben ‘Mookie’ Thomas said he came up with the idea and believes . . .
