Police chief pushes back on Washington state’s new gun restrictions

While I admire this police chief turning the tables on the proggies via “sanctuary laws,” I would rather challenge Washington’s new law in court. I don’t like sanctuary status for illegal aliens and don’t want to see the whole country explode with “exemptions” to our laws.

From Fox News: One police chief in Washington State wants to make his city a “sanctuary” for gun owners.

Republic Police Department Chief Loren Culp is looking to shield his city from a new state law that imposes more strict limitations on firearms.

Initiative 1639 was recently approved in Washington and prevents individuals under the age of 21 from buying semiautomatic weapons.

The law also creates the potential for someone to be criminally prosecuted if he or she stores a gun where a “prohibited” person gains access to it.

Loren said on Sunday that he “cannot and will not” enforce the law, and that I-1639 almost eliminates the ability for individuals under the age of 21 to exercise their constitutional rights.

“It goes against the oath of my office,” he said on Fox & Friends.

Loren wrote on his department’s Facebook pageaccording to The Spokesman-Review, that he is recommending the “Second Amendment Sanctuary City Ordinance,” which would “prevent federal and state infringement on the right to keep and bear arms.”

He said Sunday that most of the counties across his state denied the I-1639 law, but that high-population areas like Seattle passed it.

“I have tremendous support of my community for doing this,” he said.

According to Seattle PI, the National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit challenging the new law.

So is the solution direct voting (or referendum) on every policy issue? That would transform the United States from our present republican system of indirect democracy (via elected representatives) into a direct democracy, which was not what the Founding Fathers instituted.
Do you believe Americans, in the interest of reducing our national debt of 101% of our GDP, will actually vote for cuts in their entitlements?

Who's to Blame? Politicians or We the People?

How many of the Reps and Senators in Washington, DC, do you think can claim to live up to this wise injunction?

James Madison


“If we resort for a criterion to the different principles on which different forms of government are established, we may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior.”
James Madison, Federalist No. 39  (H/t PatriotPost)
But then, we really have no one to blame but ourselves. We elected them…and keep reëlecting them —

Corrupt Congressman Charles Rangel

No matter how badly they behave, e.g.,

And no matter how long they’ve served. The late Demonrat Sen. Robert Byrd has the distinction disgrace of having served been the longest in Congress — 57 years! Below is a list of 14 currently serving reps and senators with the longest tenure in Congress, 10 of whom are Demonrats:

  1. Rep. John Dingell (D-Michigan), 55 years
  2. Rep., then Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), 51 years
  3. Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan), 46 years
  4. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-New York), 40 years
  5. Rep. Bill Young (R-Florida), 40 years
  6. Rep., then Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Mississippi), 38 years
  7. Rep. Pete Stark (D-California), 38 years
  8. Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), 38 years
  9. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), 36 years
  10. Rep., then Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana), 36 years
  11. Rep., then Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), 36 years
  12. Rep., then Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), 36 years
  13. Rep. George Miller (D-California), 36 years
  14. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-California), 36 years

Poor James Madison. If he could see us now….
