Culp For Governor: Police Chief Who Refused to Enforce Anti-Gun Laws Makes a Run
Russ Chastain 07.30.19
Earlier this year, we told you about a group of sheriffs in the state of Washington who’d vowed NOT to enforce a passel of new gun restrictions linked to a ballot initiative in that state. In addition to the sheriffs was a police chief in the town of Republic. That man’s name is Loren Culp, and he is running for governor.
Ammoland reports that Culp, a Washington native, is an Army veteran, a member of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, and author of a book titled “American Cop: Upholding the Constitution and Defending Your Right to Bear Arms.”
Here’s a blurb from the Amazon page for Culp’s book:
Chief Loren Culp stood up for the rights of citizens in the face of a statewide initiative to restrict gun rights that he believed went against his oath of office. Was it the right thing to do? Whether you are liberal or conservative, pro-gun or anti-gun, you will find the information provided in this book compelling.
Many have said that police just need to enforce the law because they are law enforcement. Chief Culp says ‘that’s not true’. Who is right? Get an inside look at why Culp chose to uphold the constitution and defend your right to bear arms.
Loren Culp has been the Police Chief of Republic, Washington for over 2 years. He has been a patrol officer, narcotics detective, police sergeant and is currently a K9 handler. He is a former sergeant in the U.S. Army and is an avid hunter and supporter of the Constitution. He has been a guest on many national television and radio shows and was featured on FOX News with Tucker Carlson. He has been married to his wife Barb for over 40 years and has seven grandchildren.
Culp, who will run as a Republican, has a campaign website where he’s running as an “everyman” rather than a typical politician.
Loren Culp is an avid defender of citizens rights and defender of the Constitution. After his military service, he was a small business owner for more than 20 years. He knows how excessive taxes and regulations hurt all businesses large and small. As the current Police Chief in Republic, WA, and former narcotics detective, he is on the front lines of the opioid and meth crisis and has been for many years. He has seen lives ruined by drug abuse, but he has also helped turn lives around. It takes tough enforcement and compassionate treatment to help others make a change for the better. Loren has real world experience and his common sense approach addressing these issues, coupled with a track record of positive change, are just a few reasons to elect Loren Culp for Governor 2020.
Career politicians have been running the government in Olympia for far too long, it’s time we elect more ‘We the People’ into government positions.
Loren believes strongly in our founding documents because they protect all citizens equally. The Declaration of Independence states that governments are instituted to protect citizen’s rights. For far too long what we’ve seen out of Olympia is exactly the opposite. We currently have a Governor and Attorney General who will not hesitate to violate their oaths of office. They actively support laws that clearly violate citizen’s rights and have no problem raising taxes on hard-working Washingtonians.
I think I’d vote for him if I could. Heck, I can only hope to have someone like that step up here in Florida. He’s about protecting rights and shrinking government. These are difficult tasks, but necessary ones.
I will keep my oath of office as I have done as a Police Chief. I will always protect citizen’s rights, PERIOD. If we allow one Constitutional right to be trampled on, then all of them can be. I will do everything within my power to make it harder on criminals that prey on society while ensuring citizen’s rights are protected.
Taxation is a burden on hard-working citizens who bear the brunt of it. I worked in the private sector as a small business owner for over 20 years starting in 1988 in the Olympia area. I know the burden first hand.
As your next Governor, I will work for the citizens of our State to lessen the size and scope of government and reduce the tax burden allowing citizens to keep more of their hard-earned money.
Any Washingtonians out there? Will you vote for Loren Culp for governor?
