The Life and Times of John Hawkins by Weldon Clark

(Any resemblance to persons living or dead is intentional.)

I will tell you, my son, that the government of the United States, your country, has evolved in some very unhealthy ways. Most of the politicians are not religious and have taken up worshiping the government. Regardless of party, power over your life is their objective. They wish to control your future and the future of your grandchildren. The image they hold of the future is one in which you and your grand children are dependent on the government for your personal security. They know you will begin to resent this sooner or later. Therefore they want you to have as little power to resist them as possible. This means they want you to have no firearms. The have confiscated firearms in your country in New York City, Cleveland, Connecticut and California. Under various pretexts they confiscate firearms whenever they can using every excuse. They plan to do this across the whole country. My father foresaw this.

When he died he did not mention any firearms in his will. I and my brothers and sisters sat down at a table and parceled out guns and ammunition to each of us. If the government wants to know about my father’s guns they can try asking him. Of course, once you are dead the government cannot get answers out of you. And you can no longer be prosecuted or imprisoned.

I will parcel out my guns to all of you, my children, provided you promise never to voluntary or involuntarily register them with any government local, state, or federal. I will leave you a thousand rounds of ammunition for each firearm.

As each of you goes through life I would like you to keep any record of firearm ownership out of the hands of the government. Avoid registration any way you can. When you trade firearms with your friends make sure they are indeed your friends. You should know your friends very well, which means having only a few good ones. Having bad friends is the most dangerous thing you can do in life.

When you trade a firearm for a similar firearm—say a .38 S&W for a .38 S&W, you have effectively changed the serial number on the .38 you own. So it is more difficult for the government to know who has what gun.

When you obtain a firearm from another person do not keep any record of the transaction. Then store that firearm away from your residence for a long period of time. In case you were set up, the evidence will not be in your possession.

Store your firearms securely. I have a cousin named Francis Drake who is a little bit on the wicked side. He stores his firearms protected by a 2000 volt electrical charge. Fran has done some things to politicians who are anti-gun that I of course would never do. One of his representatives kept introducing gun bills. Fran had all kinds of things delivered to his house, like gravel, sand, and lumber. He had a call girl go to the representative’s house at 3 AM. Fran made sure the politician never knew who did these things and never knew why they were done. Soon the other politicians began to notice that the politician had started to behave strangely. And he was a lot less effective in doing anything, including waging his anti-gun crusade. With anonymous phone calls, Fran set up another anti-gun politician to be investigated on gun charges. When Fran’s police chief called him a "Neanderthal", Fran got back at him by not saying things that would have helped the chief in his official duties with the chief’s enemies.

My children, in all areas of your life you must follow a strategy of resisting government power of any kind. So you must vote in every election, and you must support those politicians who will reduce the government's power over your life by helping to finance and run their campaigns for political office. If you can bear the company, become useful to the political party in your area. Get a hold of their supporters list and try to meet these people. Every once in a while you can get a politician’s attention by talking to his supporters.

You should serve on a jury every chance you get. In any case where the government is trying to prosecute someone for a paper crime, such as failing to fill our a firearms registration form, say nothing but vote not guilty regardless of the judge's instructions. Judging the correctness of the law as well as the actions of the accused is your moral duty, and it is an established principle in American jurisprudence. All judges say you have to do as they say, but you don’t. You are the real judge in a trial, and you should never convict anyone who is simply trying to live free.

You should exercise your rights every chance you get, regardless of whether you have done any thing illegal or not, and regardless of how you have to do it. One time a policeman asked me to let him search the trunk of my car. I told him the lock fell out and he would need a screwdriver. He did not search the trunk.

Finally, my children, you should serve on any boards or commissions you can get appointed to. And always, always in everyday life, as a voter, or as an official of any kind speak up for, and work toward, more freedom. If you do this, your own children--and they’re children, and theirs—will thank you and bless your memory.
