Now we watch as the naysayers come creeping out of the woodwork denouncing Steve as a right wing nut. So be it but at least he is at least trying to get something started instead of just giving mealy mouthed speeches that go nowhere. Go get ‘em Steve.

Here's another "AUSTIN – State Rep. Steve Toth (R-The Woodlands) has begun the process to file legislation assisting the protection of the Second Amendment of the United State Constitution. The “Firearms Protection Act” bill would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries. Anyone trying to enforce a federal gun ban could face felony charges under the proposal." www.yourhoustonnews.com/cypresscreek/news/state-rep-steve-toth-to-file-firearm-protection-act/article_8b2709a5-80c2-547b-814a-11ad56340677.html God Bless Texas! (Not sure why it's formatting that way. Huge spaces between "another", excerpt, link & "God Bless")

Should have been done long ago. Do it now.

And ignore the people, even on here, who were saying, ‘let’s just get him out of office in 2012’.

Steve Stockman isn’t a freshman member. This is his second term separated by 16 years. His first term was back in 1995-97 as a prominent class of ‘94 member who took down the powerful Dem committee chairman Jack Brooks.

Good for this doughty Texan.

Although, this warning of impeachment is stuff that Obama eats up.

He can crow to his base that the evil Republicans who would have them eat dog food are persecuting him and are out to destroy his "oneness with the little people".

I think the people might be threatening something also, considering the buying frenzy they’ve been on since the Democrats began talking their treason. Congress needs to rein in this would-be despot and his co-conspirators before they go too far and things go completely haywire. Reflecting on the history of the past century, these are really spooky times to be living through. I used to kind of chuckle under my breath at the “preppers” and gold bugs. Not any more.

He has the Constitution on his side. It is against the law for the POS to issue an EO on the Second Amendment. Someone needs to put him in his place. If it has to be a freshman, so be it.

Not a first time freshman. He defeated a LONG TIME incumbant democrat in the Republican Revolution of 1994, but only lasted one term because the democrat establishment vowed revenge and brought tons of resources in from all over the country to defeat him in 1996. Glad to see he’s back.

It could go far, if it’s investigated thoroughly enough. Quite a few anti-Second-Amendment folks, in their comments under gun control articles at newspaper sites, have called for the following.

Steve Stockman isn’t a freshman member. This is his second term ....

I thought that was the case and figured someone smarter than me like you would come along say so. Thanks. He isn't my Rep but I'm nearby by about 60 miles or so. And I like the guy.

I agree but I also think that crap is wearing thinner and thinner all the time and a lot less people are soaking it up as more of his real agenda crystallizes.

Hell,I was there.

Steve Stockman lost his seat in 1996 to obvious vote fraud.

The spineless Establishment pubbies did not even whimper

We need a new generation of revolutionary firebrands to take on Washington.

Way to go, Steve!
