Obama Threatened With Impeachment If Executive Action Used For Gun Control

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 Biden’s expected gun control recommendations: “My understanding is the vice president’s 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.”

It’s 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.

The right of Americans to bear arms is a GOD-GIVEN RIGHT and not one that can be taken away by a black Marxist Muslim gay illegal alien using a stolen birth certificate, stolen social security number(s) and a forged selective service card.

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.

Or the one the kids heard, yelled at by cops, “Put your hands behind your back!”

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.

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.

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.

You kidding? Who's got the time or energy to pursue impeachment in Washington these days?

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..

Guess I'm a conspiracy Tin Foil Hat wearers, too.

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.

HA!.................maybe..........

Good evening.

"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.
