GOP congressman threatens impeachment if Obama uses executive action for gun control
The Daily Caller ^ | 01/14/2013 | Caroline May

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.

Texas should just start the Secession movement. Lil Barry will be peeing in his pants. The clown removed in place by the states. Time to choose a side. As a bonus the Supreme Court members get told to bleep off as well.

Now there is a good one I had not thought about. I will miss my SS, but I can still go back to work for a few more years.

Just subpoena his so-called “birth certificate” and his draft papers and social security number as evidence in the Impeachment.

“He MUST be impeached even if the Senate will not remove.”

Agreed.

While practicing at the range remember, every shot a bulls eye, every shot an eye shot.

Can a high-ranking military official, like a 5-star general take action against 0bama if he believes he’s committed a blatantly unconstitutional offense that violates rights given to American citizens by our Constitution?

"I want Zero to go down in the history books as only three Presidents who have been IMPEACHED."

...and he would be the 2d consecutive Democrat to have been impeached...

They have a duty to do so - or risk violating their own Oath to defend the Constitution...

Fulfilling the duty - aye, there’s the rub.

Especially if given an order that violates the Constitution.

To answer your question, the hook causing the delay must first be waiting until the EO is signed already, which is a nasty prospect.

I am proud that Stockman had the stride to speak the word, I M P E A C H M E N T. That’s far more than we can hope for from Boo Hoo Boehner in a lifetime.

good to see some congresscritter has actually read the Constitution and understands the separation of powers

unfortunately, my congresscritter isn’t one of them. I’m pretty sure rep. young is auditioning for ‘weekend at barrys IV’

Dissenting governors (Republican, or otherwise) could simply refuse to comply with any executive orders. .

He would be obligated to in order to uphold his oath to protect and defend the Constitution.
