or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young. That. even an armed one. If you want me to do something for you. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories.WHY THE GUN SUPPORTS CIVILIZATION Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction. sticks. size. you have a choice of either convincing me via argument. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer . Without guns involved. you cannot deal with me by force. In a truly moral and civilized society. The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. A mugger. as paradoxical as it may sound to some. Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. people exclusively interact through persuasion. a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger. bats. This argument is fallacious in several ways. and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. People who think that fists. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength. and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly. or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender. where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. that's it. the field is level. When I carry a gun. There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. of course. because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. the strong. is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed. because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. Reason or force. or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger. You have to use reason and try to persuade me. and the many. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society. without exception. If both are armed. not the stronger attacker.

but because it enables me to be unafraid... It removes force from the equation. .and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced. When I carry a gun. I don't do so because I am looking for a fight. I don't carry it because I'm afraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason.if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable. only the actions of those who would do so by force. but because I'm looking to be left alone. only persuaded.

behind the usual smoke-screen of "Law and Order". Back in 1987 when the British Government decided to ban semi-automatic rifles. Only the criminals and police now have access to the Hand-gun. "only outlaws will have them". the guns were prohibited. shotguns were placed under even more draconian control even though they didn’t feature in the crime which was used as an excuse to take the rifles out of the hands of thousands of law abiding people... We all know what it means and it could not better describe the situation we have in England in 2002. The illegal ownership of . they are still "classed" as a "criminal". For good measure. even if some of these "criminals" are otherwise law abiding people who have the sense not to be unarmed. goes the old proverb. I did "my bit" writing letters to MP’s and the press trying to inject a degree of commonsense into the proceedings. To little effect. The ban achieved nothing.(*) BOOK HISTORY "We want your guns . All of em" "When guns are outlawed". as was expected.

A lunatic. Public concerns. Our criminals. some gun owners succumbed to the dreaded "gun owner guilt complex" while others gave a good impression of the ostrich and hoped the "problem" would go away. As anyone else with a genuine interest in a particular subject. backed to the hilt by the hidden agendas of the police and media. The anti-gun lobby received the most wonderful gift they could have ever imagined. committed a particularly grave crime. Others lost their jobs and livelihoods. have ready access to an array of weaponry from MAC10’s to semi-automatic pistols and the armed paramilitary wing of our "Unarmed Police Force" bristle with prohibited machine-guns and semi-automatic handguns! Law abiding citizens. In usual British fashion. The Government knew they had to be seen to be "Doing Something". Through a law based wholly on hysteria and knee-jerk reactions and without a shred of evidence that a law banning all legally held pistols would have the slightest effect on gun crime. succeeded in prohibiting the legal ownership of privately owned hand-guns. THE MEDIA MOTIVATED MOB Then came 1996. armed with a pistol. to keep and bear arms. for the most part. Due to the draconian controls we are brainwashed into believing make our society safer. were fanned into an hysteria which even by British standards.firearms increased along with the crime rate. a lifelong hobby or sport. In human terms the costs of the ban cannot be fully . With the stroke of a pen. It will never return. one of the most fundamental rights of a free people. my interest in firearms and "Gun Control" issues remained constant. They trampled upon the rights of an innocent minority who’s only "crime" was to own a particular type of rifle. a rifle no more "Dangerous" than any other firearm. A TIME FOR ACTION Seeing that another perfect opportunity to disarm another innocent minority was at hand. was a staggering example of the blind leading the blind. while understandable. the very people who should have the firearms. Many thousands of law-abiding people lost. The most disastrous year in the history of firearms ownership. ceased to exist. The semiautomatic rifle is now extinct in England. the Government. and when the need arose. They did. a victim of hysteria and political expediency. if used in a criminal or irresponsible manner. I continued to fight my own personal campaign against the anti-firearms lobby. however. one of the greatest injustices inflicted on a law abiding section of British society came into effect. do not. It didn’t. at the very least.

such a book may be viewed as a boring read by anyone without a keen interest in the subject and the reader may even be in danger of "Nodding off" after a chapter or two. If the average person can build their own machine gun. What did it achieve? Nothing! Since the ban. the answer to my quest hit me like a brick. It is often reported in the media that we are more likely to be a victim of a violent attack in our own inner city areas than in the often reported areas in the United States with its supposedly high crime rates and. And hand-gun owners did hang. In financial terms. a ‘Homemade Sub-Machine Gun Book’! Think about it. I decided the best way of dispelling the cosy myths expounded by the gun grabbers was to write a book! A controversial book. Due to my long interest in firearm’s design. crime rates have soared and gun related crime is at an all time high. while the rifle and shotgun owners gave little in the way of "supporting fire". The British gun owner took little notice of the truth in the old proverb "If we don’t hang together we will all hang separately". full of facts and statistics perhaps? Well such a book is great and can offer useful ammunition to fire at the enemy. from "off the shelf" materials. it was just too good an opportunity for the "gun grabbers" to pass up. After all. I had it. When the 1996 Hand-gun hysteria started. Beside. with all its inherent firepower. incidentally. I wonder who will support them? I decided it was time for action. something that would shock the anti-gun mindset into something resembling human logic and consciousness! But what. HOMEMADE FIREPOWER An academic book. Words and reason were an insufficient weapon against lies and misinformation. it cost the British taxpayer many millions of pounds as the Government reluctantly engaged in a hand-gun "Buy Back" scheme. I had to illuminate the true motivations behind the anti-gun lobby and show the futility of attempting to control who may own a gun and who may not.calculated. Hardly the result desired by its albeit learned author! What I wanted was instant impact. a more liberal and enlightened attitude towards firearms ownership. I knew it was only a matter of time before the pistol joined its friends in the extinct cabinet. wouldn’t all anti-gun legislation suddenly be seen for what it really is. . the transparent sham of "Crime Control" behind which the gun grabbers try to hide? I went to work. something that would rock the flimsy foundations of the anti-gun ideology. but facts and figures can be taken out of context by the opposition to prove or disprove a particular point. When it comes time for the shotgun and rifle owners to hang.

The irony of the whole story though is this: it was those responsible for the hand-gun ban whom I have to thank for ‘Expedient Homemade Firearms’. at least as far as I was concerned. More importantly. Designing and constructing the machine gun took about six months. as a result. if he so desired. a laughably simple design. The finished book must be written in a format which the average individual would understand and offer an improvised machine gun design simple enough for any would-be homegunsmith to put into practice. fitting it in as best I could between various other endeavours. I wanted a 9 mm.p calibre and although a nice and simple design. The other was in . it succeeded in giving the British anti-gun lobby something to think about.My requirements for building the machine gun were two-fold. ammunition availability is very good. Luty still has a lot of Brtish sense of humour… .c. a fully functioning automatic firearm emerged like a Phoenix from the Anti-gun smelting pot! Following extensive test firing (this being the most enjoyable part). It must combine both simplicity of design and material availability as a means of achieving simplicity of manufacturer. however. out of an array of innocent-looking hardware products. The main problem being designing such a weapon around available materials and products. If it were not for the anti-gun lobby. It’s the most popular machine gun round in existence and. I felt the finished product fulfilled all the requirements I had originally laid out. neither the book or this web site would exist! Strange how things turn out sometimes! …even after such unfair punishments. which was the whole motivation behind the project in the first place. Eventually. the machine gun was reasonably light and compact. I had three machine gun designs to chose from. The first being no more than a fully automatic "zip gun" which didn’t have all the characteristics normally associated with what is commonly perceived as classic machine good looks. All items used in construction were standard hardware products which would not arouse suspicions when purchased or left "lying around". I proceeded to compile the manuscript. It was. Upon its completion. while at the same time ensuring a reasonable degree of durability and strength. Mr.45 a. drawings and photographs with one thought in mind. I opted for the 9 mm. It would fire a commercially available cartridge and could be clandestinely manufactured without the need for expensive machinetools.
