Back in the days before you were told to interlock your fingers behind your head, people were told to raise their hands. Back in the 1929, that could have been the trigger that set forth a stream of lead and pain for the person on the business end of this machine gun vest.
The breastmachine gun was the work of Sammy Schwarz, an inventor from Chicago. It was controlled by two strings, which would run up each of the wearer’s sleeves: one controlled the aim of the gun, the other unleashed hell.
The breastmachine gun was featured in the May 1929 issue of Modern Mechanics magazine. In the wake of all the recent face-eating activity, maybe there is a place for it in 2012.
