“My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence,” Obama said during a press conference on Monday. “Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we’re going to go ahead and propose later in the week. But I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as President, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then I want to go ahead and take it.”
Obama’s game plan designed to chip away at the cornerstone of the Bill of Rights was aided by the Soros and Rockefeller supported and funded Center for American Progress (CAP). The establishment Democrat think tank presented its recommendations on Monday, including both legislative proposals and executive orders.
“The Center for American Progress is recommending 13 new gun policies to the White House — some of them executive actions that would not require the approval of Congress — in what amounts to the progressive community’s wish list,” the Washington Post reported last week.
Obama and the Democrats at CAP know any executive action or order by Obama would be a direct violation of Article I Section I of the Constitution stating that all legislative powers reside with Congress.
If Congress allows Obama to issue executive orders they are violating their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Despite this, Congress will undoubtedly allow any attack on the Constitution issued by executive order to stand as it has done in the past.
Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas has declared that he will protect the Constitution and file articles of impeachment against Obama if he attacks the Second Amendment with an 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 on Monday after Democrats revealed their strategy to dismantle the Second Amendment.
“The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation,” the statement reads. “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.”
Obama’s executive orders present “an existential threat to this nation” because the purpose of the Second Amendment is to empower the people to resist a tyrannical government.
Article I gives the House of Representatives the sole power of impeachment and the Senate the sole power to try impeachments. Conviction and removal from office requires a two-thirds vote.
If Obama indeed attempts to undermine the Second Amendment through executive actions or orders, impeachment proceedings must begin immediately.
“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. If the President is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist,” Rep. Stockman’s statement explains.
