Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
Stockman warned that such executive orders would be â€œunconstitutionalâ€ and â€œinfringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.â€
â€œI will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,â€ Stockman said in a statement.
At his press conference Monday, Obama floated the possibility of using executive action to enact policies aimed at reducing gun violence.
The freshman congressman, who served one term in Congress in the mid-1990s, further labeled the possibility â€œan existential threat to this nationâ€ because, he said, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to protect themselves from tyranny.
â€œAny proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible,â€ he added. â€œUnder no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person â€” much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court.â€
