Freshman Republican threatens to impeach Obama over gun control

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Son of Gob (a host of the The DU Lounge forum).

Freshman Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) on Monday threatened to impeach President Barack Obama if he used an executive order to infringe American’s Second Amendment rights.

“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,” he said in a statement.

“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.”


***

“The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation,” he said. “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.”

3. Is it too late to add 'Stockman Syndrome' to DSM-V?

Worse, it's probably communicable.
