Skip to comments.Obama Threatened With Impeachment If Executive Action Used For Gun Control
Posted on 01/15/2013 2:32:24 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) is threatening to file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures via executive order.
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 Monday, according to the Daily Caller.
The Weekly Standard reported that Obama used the final press conference of his first term in office Monday to offer some details on Vice President Joe Bidens expected gun control recommendations: My understanding is the vice presidents going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence, Obama said. Some of them will require legislation; some of them I can accomplish through executive action.
Its unlikely that Obama can reinstate a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons, stop the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips, or require background checks without new legislation, which has little chance of passing in the GOP-controlled House.
A wide range of options remain available through executive order and would not be without precedent.

cuomo shoudl be threatened with impeachment too- or NY’ers coudl band together and REFUSE to pay their state taxes (with the help of their employers of course) becasue cuomo has failed to do his duty and is threatenign and accomplishign to violate the folk’s constitutional rights- If enough peopel refused to pay hteir taxes- the left woudl very quickly understand that NY’ers mean business and that these officials had better get their act togehter OR ELSE they will thrown out of office for breach of contract!
What a coincidence that Sandy Hook would happen right before the start of what everyone already knew was an Obama 'gun grabbing second term', Hmmmm... How do we know it was Adam who killed his mother, or even killed those kids for that matter???
I love all of these articles that end with “Executive action would not be without precedent”
Yes, we call that the American Revolution.
Anytime else in the past I would have said this was an absolutely insane conspiracy theory ... however, given the evil displayed by this regime ... I would NOT put anything past them ... including this
Okay, stop that right now.
I trust that you're speaking in hyperbole, but, c'mon, man! Really? The Conspiracy Theory Card? Really.
I like Rep. Stockman.....he has some serious backbone.
Important to note those GOP who try to quash this Impeachment....and who in the PhonyCon RINO Media attacks him....you can bet it will be the same PhonyCon RINO Obama Supporters that attacked the Birthers for bringing up Obama Eligibility
The e-pubs have to put up some resistance. They will cry and stamp their feet but do nothing. This is what they do. How is the repeal of Obamacare going? How is the preezy allowed not to put a budget up? How is it that and taxes go up and we pay for it? They should ne at every microphone telling who ever will listen as to what is going Øn in there country. Nothing is happening and our country is being taken away from is.
What happened to the guy in the woods that was handcuffed and led away as he was yelling “I didn’t do it”?
Or the one the kids heard, yelled at by cops, “Put your hands behind your back!”
Or were the cops yelling at the guy who killed himself?
IF we can't get rid of a rapist POTUS....how in the hell you think we can rid the Nation of this poser?
Will that vote be the one before or after the one to put obama on Mt. Rushmore?
If he uses EO against the 2nd Amendment, why should he be allowed to take the oath of office in the first place? Everybody knows it’s a lie.
Won’t happen in a Dem majority Senate.
It would take an insurrection to remove this tyrant.
impeach Obama? With this bunch of Rino’s in control???
Bingo? Why is the MSN or Repuglicans not asking the same thing?
I have had the same thoughts. With any other president, I would not think so, but this one, who holds life as disposable as he sits fit, I wouldn’t put anything past him. The timing of all of this is very suspicious. England banned guns right after a school shooting of very young children. What would turn people against guns more than the slaughter of young innocent children?
Nothing will happen except maybe the defeat for renomination of Rep. Stockman in 2014.
If I recall, the GOP had control of the Senate when the Clinton impeachment failed there so who actually thinks a Dem. controlled Senate today would impeach this guy?
The timing of this event is as coincidental as Hillary’s so-called ‘concussion’. At some point, one becomes aware they are being played. Before you know it we’ll have an oil rig explode that is far out to sea and as deep as can be to make remedy of it nearly impossible so as to allow maximum damage to occur towards evoking maximum outrage against big oil. Oh, wait..
Go for broke, Barry! You can do it! You just go on ahead and EO the Bill of Rights out of existence. What could go wrong?
Well bless his little pea-picking heart.
I know investigation is ongoing and LE may not want to give out details regarding investigation.
But, deep down inside, I guess I lean to Tin Foil.
Sounds good to me...wear them down on this issue and others!
"File the articles of impeachment. The House might pass them then the Senate would have to have a trial. Of course, the Senate will ignore the facts and acquit him. Then refile them the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that...ad infinitum."
Yes, but Boner doesn't have the cajones. Even though Boner knows that he (and the Republicans) will be blamed for EVERYTHING (along with that eunuch McConell), they still won't do it.
The gop, imho is done.
“This should get interesting.”
Indeed. The mercenary Secret Service traitors who are keeping this POS commie in office best start thinking about their options. There’s not much time left.
Maybe there’s an Oathkeeper among them, eh?
It should be a PROMISE not a threat.
