My first try at a Riley Riddle, enjoy.

My prefix fired bullets for King and Country,
My infix won't do what you say,
My suffix shows the relation of different quantities,
As a whole I will help you if you need to write fast.

Who/what am I?

Are you a

Stenograph

This is a

fast typewriter for e.g. court reporters.

Explanation:

Prefix: Sten, a type of gun
Infix: No
Suffix: Graph, referring to the graph of a function (or maybe a line chart, charts are also sometimes called graphs)
