Michael Zomber: Passion For Collecting Firearms and Writing Novels

Michael Zomber is passionate about American history and Japanese culture. His obsession with such topics have essentially influenced his entire adult life as a weapons collector and author. Zomber has dedicated decades to studying and collecting American and foreign weapons. Throughout the years, he has been thrilled to share his understanding of firearms with the rest of the world.

In the early 1990s, the A&E network invited Zomber to participate in several of the channel’s shows that were about firearms. Surely, the gun guru simply could not decline such a great opportunity to discuss his favorite topics on television. Zomber appeared in more than ten episodes on the History Channel’s programs such as Automatic Pistols and Guns of the Famous.

In addition to being an expert on American firearms, Zomber is also considered a guru when it comes to Samurai weapons. In fact, he has compiled a personal collection of swords that have been used for generations by Japan’s traditional warriors. With deep knowledge of the military traditions of the Far East, Zomber also appeared on the History Channel’s Guns of the Orient.

After spending so much time looking at and holding guns, Zomber became more aware about the dangers of the modern world’s arsenal. He has joined Amnesty International and UNICEF in an effort to help countries that have been devastated by armed conflicts.

Michael Zomber has also made a name for himself as an author. Some of this best-selling works are Sweet Betsy That’s Me and A Son of Kentucky. These novels give readers detailed insights on life in the American antebellum period and during the Civil War. Some of the chapters in these books have rather gruesome details about the bloody nature of armed conflict. In Park Avenue, Zomber informs the audience about the art auctioning niche, which has its own rogue elements. Additionally, Shogun Lemitsu is another book that appeals to those with an interest in traditional Japanese culture. Check out Zomber’s Facebook for more.

    Despite being a gun fanatic, it’s safe to say that he is an ardent pacifist. Zomber was also proud to write Jesus and the Samurai, which shines light on the spread of Christianity throughout Japan. I certainly believe that high quality essays should have been the medium to use to disseminate these information properly.
