It’s like naming an attack submarine after Corpus Cristi: when religion is infused into civic life, it gets carried along wherever the citizens want to go.

I have the feeling it’s part of a series. (Collect all 50. They probably wouldn’t have one for the District of Columbia due to the DC gun laws.) If I’m going to collect art, I really want to make sure it won’t explode. And if I really wanted a weapon for some reason, I think I would be more concerned about function than decoration. So another advertisement falls flat for me.

If you want to be nit-picky, besides the obvious temple error, John Moses Browning’s image should be on a Winchester Model 94, not a Mossberg.

A post like this cries out for nit-picking, YAJohn.

Last time I checked online with the seller, this particular gun in that series had been withdrawn, apparently due to the Ogden Temple, uhh, “artistic interpretation.”
However, I wonder if Moroni’s inclusion on this is “so that my aim might be true.”
This was included as an advertising supplement to the Ogden Standard Examiner last summer. This is just so, so, weird, that I had to bring it to Ardis’ attention, and thus to all the keepaninnies out there.
