GOP congressman threatens impeachment if Obama uses executive action for gun control

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 “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.”

“I 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,” 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 “an existential threat to this nation” because, he said, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to protect themselves from tyranny.

“Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible,” he added. “Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person — much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court.”

    Obama is a Communist Illegal Alien.
    His 1st Executive Order was to seal & hide his true identity.
    The Judges have blocked DISCOVERY.
    The House Representatives have sat on their hands.
    Impeachment will force DISCOVERY.

    How can it be that impeachment proceedings are NOT already in play? (Intense head scratching) If the man and his cronies have been allowed to get away with the multiple crimes that they already have, that the regular Joe would have already been in prison for, what difference is him signing yet another EO? It is disgusting to informed Americans the man is still in office. How can he still be allowed with the perpetual overspending, blatant lies, not to mention Benghazi and F&F? God help us find some Senators that care for Americans. Some Senators with morals, ethics, values and some, excuse the term, balls that will fight for us. I The country is going down in flames and no one in power gives a crap as long as there is money to be had to line their pockets. My question to you is, What are you going to do when the well runs dry?

    I am not a politician, but I am a peaceful, law abiding gun owner. I want to thank any politician that stands up on my behalf, concerning this very important matter. We need to stand against these liberal nuts that don’t have a clue about what truly makes America great. Our country is finished if we do not stand up. Thank you Mr. Stockman for your dedication and hard work concerning this matter.
