Texas Congressman threatens impeachment if Barack Obama uses Executive Order to implement gun control

Barack Obama and Joe Biden have both threatened to use an Executive Order in an attempt to curb gun violence. What does this mean? Does it mean that Barack Obama would actually look at banning assault weapons or high capacity magazines? Does it mean he will order a national registry? Or is it to implement new mental health guidelines?

We simply do not know what Barack Obama has in mind, but one thing is certain–there is no way in hell that Barack Obama has the authority to issue an executive order which supersedes an amendment to the constitution, that would have to be passed by the Congress and voted on by the people.

Barack Obama and the Democrats like to compare the president to Abraham Lincoln, but Abraham Lincoln knew that he couldn’t abolish slavery legally with his Emancipation Proclamation (which didn’t free all the slaves as is commonly believed today, it only freed the slaves in the states in rebellion, states like Maryland would have been able to keep its slaves) and that is why he worked so hard to pass the 13th amendment.

And today Texas Representative Steve Stockman threatened to introduce articles of impeachment if Barack Obama tried to use executive order to implement any gun bans:

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.

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.

If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist

I am not one who usually throws around the ‘I’ word, but if Barack Obama actually thinks he has the power to subvert a constitutional amendment then I say it is time we start to take a serious look at this course of action.

    All I can say is that I am surprised that serious talk of impeachment has taken this long.

  3. Vaughn Monti says:

    Why threaten him? Get er done. The only way shut Obamas treasonous trap is at this point is to get him off of his high horse. The threats to the second amendment is enough to get the ball rolling, before the only thing left is revolution. Can the Supreme Court step in and tell him to shut up and that he is in violation of his constitutional oath?

  4. Vaughn Monti says:

    Another point that Obama is pitching that we need more gun control is because of some insane person that had been turned down to buy a gun,who then kills his own mother to obtain guns, goes a shoots 26 people, and commits suicide, is actually a reason to destroy the 2nd Amendment, is a good reason to doubt the sanity of Obama himself.

  5. Vaughn Monti says:

    I want to know. Who pissed in his Pablum? Along with Dianne Icebutt and that ny idiots,too

  6. Vaughn Monti says:

    Can a civil or class action suit be filed against the president since no in the house or senate hasn’t?

  7. Lindsay says:

    His gun ban proposals aren’t the only reason O-Bummer should be impeached (although, to me, it’s the biggest). This liar promised the moon to his constituents and hasn’t delivered on a thing. We are deeper in debt after he promised to dig us out, with his passionate, blaming-the-other-guy speech, and our economy is still crippled. The bail-outs should have NEVER happened, and I could go on.
    This narcissistic, power-grabbing man is the sorriest excuse for a leader I have ever seen – he needs to go.

  8. I do not think he is stupid to try this.How else will he be able to get his third term?????????
