Good Grief- "Rep. Stockman threatens Obama impeachment over guns"

ANOTHER "Brand New" Texas Congressman gets his woodie.

http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-congress/2013/01/rep-stockman-threatens-obama-impeachment-over-guns-154141.html

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) is threatening to file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he moves to change gun regulations through 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, Stockman didn’t hold back, saying Obama is launching an “attack on the very founding principles of this republic.”

“The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation,” Stockman said in a statement. “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.”



Get people registered to vote,Texans... and Make Sure they vote in 2014.

2. Pretty sure Dumbya issued an executive order banning the importation of assault weapons.

Other than him being Republican and white, is there any difference between the two scenarios?

15. Impeachment is a word that should not be thrown around to get leverage.

 

Just like Divorce should not be used everytime a couple has an argument.
