A Texas Congressman is threatening president Obama with impeachment if his administration exercises executive action to scale back the Second Amendment.
In a press release titled, “Obama’s gun grab an unconstitutional threat to the nation,” republican Rep. Steve Stockman stated, “The White House’s recent announcement they will use executive orders and executive actions to infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms is an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic.”
Rep. Stockman said that he will pursue “any means necessary” to thwart Obama’s use of executive orders targeting the Second Amendment “including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”
“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,” Rep. Stockman stated.
The Congressman said that the president’s actions would represent “not just an attack on the Constitution” but “a direct attack on Americans that place all of us in danger.”
“If the President is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist.”
