Washington State Police Chief Vows Zero Enforcement of Newly Passed Gun Controls

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Police Chief Loren Culp of Republic, Washington, says the gun controls in the newly passed Initiative 1639 will not be enforced in his county.

On September 25, 2018, Breitbart News reported that I-1639 would put in place enhanced background checks for the purchase of semiautomatic rifles, would place a ten-day wait on completion of a semiautomatic rifle sale, and would require purchasers to pass a gun safety course. The initiative also contained new gun storage laws for every type of firearm, including penalties for gun owners whose guns were stolen and used in crimes, among other things.  

Chief Culp reacted to the passage of I-1639 by reminding Republic residents that the Second Amendment will reign supreme under his leadership:

In an interview with KXLY, Culp added, “We took an oath to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the State of Washington, and [I-1639] completely flies in the face of both the U.S. and state constitution.”

Culp said he believes I-1639 will “eventually … be overturned in the courts.” Until then, he made clear, the controls of the initiative will not be enforced in Republic, Washington.

  1. ‘As long as I am Chief of Police, no Republic Police Officer will infringe on a citizens right to keep and Bear Arms, PERIOD! – Chief Culp’……………that will be ‘remedied’ I’m sure

  2. But my gestapo will still be extorting every one who travels through or within my county , we will still be violating other rights for mammon that don’t present as much of a threat
    I will still be following the Labor Union that has overtaken my authority and actually runs my department and me
    And I will still be thumbing my nose at the people’s right to be my superior

    1. Exactly, he doesn’t recognize his own base criminality, inherent in their own corporate existence…!!!

      His response is clearly as Mark stated above, he knows we the people will shoot their criminal asses if they ever try this shit….if he took his oath seriously, he wouldn’t have his job… he couldn’t do his job and keep his oath….

  3. I read today about knife laws.
    In Massachusetts it’s illegal to have one in possession
    outside the home longer than 1.5 inches.
    The law passed in July 2015.
    How ridiculous is that?

    1. I don’t even know why anyone still lives in Massachusetts anymore…. I know, I know…they’re Irish and they’re New England Patriots fans… when Tom Brady finally retires in ten years (when he’s 51 bwhahahaha), they’ll all leave then… 😉 But I do think Western Mass is a bit more sane, plus it’s really pretty there.

  4. More commie laws…

    By Dikes and Pedo fagz.

    Fkng embarrassing.

    That’s why I would never move back there.

    The best thing I can say about my home state of Washington.

    Is I don’t fkng live there.

  5. Hey; It COULD read he’s ‘aggressively enforcing the new laws’, you know? And just maybe some other spineless ‘law enforcers’ will take note, put on a fresh pair of panties, and MTFU to their oath.

  6. 20 years in the military and this is what I was protecting. Get it right…….”the right to bear arms shall not be infringed upon…..”

  7. “How many deaths would have to occur by guns for you as a gun owner to change your stance and give up your guns ?”

    Answer: How many rapes have to occur before you cut off your dick?!

  8. No doubt he’s still destroying lives imprisoning people for violation of the illegal GCA 1968….”felon in possession of a firearm”. This is by far one of the best and least talked about ways they are disarming Americans. I would not be surprised if soon, sticking gum to the underside of a table in a restaurant becomes a “felony”….or spitting while chewing even……..
