Representative Steve Stockman Issues Impeachment Threat to Obama

 

Steve Stockman, a Republican representative from Texas, was recently re-elected to Congress and had served previously from 1995-1997. Now, in his newest term, Stockman has threatened to file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama regarding gun control issues in the aftermath of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

 

Stockman released a statement on Monday that said Obama is seeking an “unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic.”

“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 pledged. “The president’s actions are an existential threat to this nation. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is what has kept this nation free and secure for over 200 years. The very purpose of the Second Amendment is to stop the government from disallowing people the means to defend themselves against tyranny. Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible.”

 

Stockman also said the following in his statement about Obama’s plan for stricter gun control.

 

“The president’s actions are not just an attack on the Constitution and a violation of his sworn oath of office — they are a direct attack on Americans that place all of us in danger,” Stockman said. “If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist.”
