Take time to read the below posts from the LPUK blog.
Relating to the recent arrests of author Philip Luty and his website’s visitors, the accounts of this wave of unhinged thuggery are coming out:
First please read Musket Mike’s article which explains what I was caught up in:
Dear Sir / Madam or Mr.Luty (if you get a chance to answer this yourself),
I’d just like to let you know that I read the article on the link by Musket Mike & I’d like to let you know that I was one of the 50 people who downloaded the book and ended up being raided.
My story has a bit more punch as they did this one day before I was due in operating theatre for open heart surgery. I ended up spending the afternoon before I went under the knife in a stinking police cell, all because they found (in my loft where I was keeping them for storage but they tried to put into my mouth that I was trying to hide them there) a BB gun, 2 legal to have old blank firers that I’ve had for 15 years and an old antique decommissioned rifle that I was keeping for my Dad (made in 1867). I now have had all these items returned, as they are perfectly legal to own and don’t require firearm certificates and subsequently have also had all ‘firearms’ charges dropped.
If you get your site back up, I would love to write up a full account of my experience for you and I’d be delighted if you were to post it on there somewhere.
All the best,

Beware big brother is watching you!!!
People, I can’t stress how serious this situation is. Totalitarianism is literally speeding over the horizon.
It just so happens that this article greeted me when opening up Google just seconds ago:
Police unit set up to combat terrorist websites
What they don’t tell you is that literature on firearms is also considered to be useful to terrorists. Would I be overly speculative if I were to suggest there is probably a lot more that’s going to meet this vague enforcement policy?
Some of you may have heard of the recent arrest of British author P.A Luty, this time under the all so convenient guise of ‘anti-terrorism’, namely “making a record of information likely to be of assistance to terrorists”.
Well, more news has come to light folks – and it’s not good.
At 2.15 pm on 5/20/09 the author of the Expedient Homemade Firearms books, Philip A.Luty was arrested at gunpoint by the British “North East Counter Terrorism Unit” (NECTU). Philip is the well known author of Expedient Homemade Firearms—The 9mm machine gun. [Buy at Amazon.com]
Numerous other books and information on building improvised firearms were available on Philip’s website http://www.thehomegunsmith.com. The website has, I am told, been temporarily closed until security measures can be put in place to prevent British police from tracing and visiting those who downloaded publications from the site. More on this chilling development later. Following Philip Luty’s arrest he was held in a London prison for over nine weeks before obtaining bail. This is the second time Philip has been arrested and questioned by British police over the books he writes and sells via his website. No, Philip Luty is not a terrorist, nor does he have any links to terrorists, but it seems that in the UK today the British police are not just happy with obtaining a ban on most types of legal firearms but also want a ban on any publication that shows how to build a firearm and/or ammunition. Hence the quite unbelievable persecution of those who sell firearms related publications.
As I said earlier this is the second time Philip has been arrested and questioned. In 2005 he was arrested and questioned over his books and website. At that time the British “Crown Prosecution Service” (CPS) took no further action and the case against Philip collapsed. Undeterred by this failure, the police waited another three years and then charged him under the UK Terrorism Act 2000. The wording of the charges is that Philip “MADE A RECORD OF INFORMATION THAT COULD ASSIST TERRORISTS”. No folks, I am not joking. In the UK British police are now trying to create a link between those who commit terrorist acts and those who write gunsmithing publications. Oh yes, I mentioned above a “chilling development”. That is putting it mildly. It turns out that at the same time that Philip was arrested the British police (Gestapo?) paid a visit to over fifty other people across the UK who had downloaded books from Philip’s website.
Reading information is no longer neutral absorption of knowledge – It’s now terrorism. To say the least, this a serious attack on our basic freedoms as human beings. Friends, things are deadly serious and if no one stands up to this, we’re going to continue along this road until we join the ranks of North Korea or China.
I implore everyone to aggressively download all of Phillip’s books. Show these jackbooted, cowardly pieces of putrid trash that you will not be intimidated into bowing down to their tyranny.
