Here's hoping he stands by his word, and others follow.

Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
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.

At his press conference Monday, Obama floated the possibility of using executive action to enact policies aimed at reducing gun violence.

The freshman congressman, who served one term in Congress in the mid-1990s, further labeled the possibility “an existential threat to this nation” because, he said, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to protect themselves from tyranny.  

“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.”

He concluded by claiming that an executive order would be not just “not just an attack on the Constitution,” but also an “attack on Americans.”

“If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist,” he said.
I hope he stands by this.
And I hope a bunch more join him.  
I don't think it will go through, but the DEMOCRATS need to be shown and told that the American People have been pushed FAR ENOUGH!  And the very idea that these pusillanimous dick weeds would try to go after the guns that are outlined in our Bill of Rights, is both atrocious and appalling.  It's the last thing Dictators / Presidents for Life do just before they begin to round up 'dissidents' and have them sent to 're-education' camps.

Only over my dead, out of ammunition ASS

It's becoming more clear that the tree of liberty desperately needs to be refreshed, especially seeing how so many are trying their best to kill that tree. If they do, it's OUR fault, not theirs.

The sound of the "I" word may make a lot of us feel good, especially since we believe it is so richly deserved. But, with the majority of the government in the hands of the left, does anyone actually think this move will go anywhere. Just watch what the MSM does to anyone even uttering the word.

Here's CT.'s idea of gun control. Let's hope it's not picked-up by Queen Bloomberg and used as a national model.

This is the new law being proposed in CT. by the leftist loons who run that state. Watch out that it doesn't catch on!

"Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

That the general statutes be amended to establish a class C felony offense, except for (certain) military and law enforcement personnel and certain gun clubs, for;

(1) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate, transport, possess or use any gun except one made to fire a "single round",

(2) any person to fire a gun containing more than a "single round",

(3) any person or organization to receive from another state, territory or country a gun made to fire multiple rounds, or

(4) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate or possess a magazine or clip capable of holding "more than one round…"
