When Washington State passed I-1639 one Chief of Police rose to defend the Constitution. Republic Police Chief Loren Culp defied the Washington State Attorney General that was pushing extreme gun-control measures through a citizen’s initiative. I-1639 made many people felons overnight. Loren Culp took a stand against this egregious assault on rights protected by the Washington State Constitution and the Consitution of the United States.
In his best-selling book American Cop: Upholding the Constitution and Defending Your Right to Bear Arms Loren details the responsibilities and authority of Law Enforcement officers everywhere. His belief that the Oath taken when becoming a Law Enforcement Officer binds you to protect the rights of the citizens that you serve, even if that defies a law believed to be unconstitutional.
I had to opportunity to video conference with Loren Culp and to discuss his position on I-1639 and his bid to become Governor for the State of Washington. We had a great discussion about what happened with I-1639 and how that led to him running for Governor. In our discussion, we talked about how our country is becoming less the Constitutional Republic and more a Country ran by elitists that believe that they no longer have to answer to the Constitution and the Oath they took.
