Steve Stockman threatens to seek impeachment if Obama takes executive action on guns
President Obama won’t be sworn in for a second term until Sunday, with a public ceremony to follow on Monday.
But the Democrat is already facing threats from at least one member of Congress to seek his impeachment if the chief executive resorts to executive action to enact new measures on gun control.
U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Friendswood, said in a statement today that he would “thwart” any executive action by Obama “by any means necessary including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House and even filing articles of impeachment.”
Stockman has a history of fighting gun control. He ran for Congress in 1994 and defeated veteran Rep. Jack Brooks, D-Beaumont, who had sponsored legislation to ban the sale of automatic assault weapons.

Here we go with the *impeachment* BS again.
To Rep. Stockman I say this; I appreciate the thought, and you were doing real good, right up until you hit that part about impeachment. If you don’t know this Sir, it is virtually IMPOSSIBLE to successfully impeach Barack Obama with a Democratic Senate in place.
I am certain that you are a well-educated man Rep. Stockman but I would suggest that you look into the rules of government and particularly the Articles of Impeachment and what exactly it takes to impeach and remove a sitting President.
Here is a *thumbnail* version, I won’t bore you or my intelligent readers with ALL of the details.
The House of Representatives, by a simple majority vote, can pass Articles of Impeachment against the President. This basically works the same way as charging someone with a crime. Once those Articles are passed, the Senate acts like a jury, with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court as the presiding judge. The President is removed from office if two-thirds of the Senate votes to convict.
Do you even remotely believe that you could garner a 2/3 majority against Obama in THIS Senate?
You could have video evidence that Obama was a traitor against the USA, had murdered someone in cold blood and had molested a small dog and the Dems, and a few so-called GOP would do NOTHING. Until that kind of mind-set is overcome, Obama has little to worry about.
Seriously, I understand the passion and the desire to see Barack Obama removed from office but impeachment will NOT get the job done Sir!
Too many people have lost the ability to think rationally, Americans that call for Obama to be impeached are thinking with their hearts and not their heads. You see, I am all for the removal of what I see as an anti-American Socialist, one that stands against all that American Conservatives hold sacred, but over HALF of this nation voted that cretin back into office for a 2nd term.
That re-election took a special kind of STUPID, and is a STUPID that can’t be overcome with a simple act of impeachment.
If Americans don’t immediately begin to work as a team, work together, with the goal being the removal of Barack Obama and his regime of Leftists, Socialists, Commies and loons, this nation is done for.
