Congressman Responds To President Obama’s Dangerous Proposals

Steve Stockman official portrait Congressman responds to President Obama’s dangerous proposals

Gun bans and anti-gun laws have always lead to one thing – more gun violence.

We owe it to innocent people to make this country as safe as possible.  Sadly, in President Obama’s announcement every tragedy he mentioned was either in a state that aggressively restricts the right to keep and bear arms or was in a location that banned guns completely.

The White House has indicated they are willing to use Executive Orders to infringe upon the God-given right to keep and bear arms protected by the Second Amendment from government intrusion.

President Obama announced the specifics of his anti-gun sneak attack today, though he refuses to answer questions regarding his own illegal transfer of weapons to Mexican drug lords.

Among the Executive Orders issued are tracking of your firearms, which creates a de facto national gun registry, and a White House demand for laws regulating the private transfer of firearms.

In other words, if you give your son his first hunting rifle, you may face a prison sentence if you fail to get approval from the government.

Those proposals, along with others floated by the White House as presidential decrees, are cutting attacks on your right as a peaceable person to keep and bear arms for your defense.  The ability to defend one from aggressors is a basic human right.

My staff is reviewing the Executive Orders.  Should President Obama issue Orders infringing upon your basic human right, I am prepared to fight back with peaceable legislative force.

>> I will lead the fight to defeat the President’s dangerous legislative proposals.

>> I will seek legislation overturning the Orders.

>> I will seek legislation barring funds to enforce the Orders.

>> I will seek legislation to cut White House funding should the President issue and enforce such Orders.

>> I will support legal efforts to overturn the Orders in court.

I ask you to contact your representatives in the House and Senate at House.gov and Senate.gov and politely urge them to support efforts to overturn or defund any proposed executive actions and to defeat the President’s dangerous legislative proposals.

Now, I would hope those measures are enough to either deter President Obama or thwart his efforts.

However, if they do not or are unsuccessful I will consider speaking with my colleagues and filing articles of impeachment.

Impeachment is not something to be taken lightly.  It is a grave and serious undertaking that should only be initiated in a sober and serious manner.  It should be reserved only for most egregious of trespasses by the President.

I would consider using Executive Orders to engage in attacks on a constitutionally-protected right and violating his sworn oath of office to be such a trespass.  The President cannot issue executive orders depriving the people of full access to an enumerated constitutional right.

I do not think it will come to that.  The President is not an absolute ruler, and his actions and orders can be checked and balanced by the Congress and the courts – if the Congress is willing.

That is why I ask you to please contact your elected representatives at House.gov and Senate.gov and politely urge them to support legislative efforts to overturn and defund the president’s Orders, and to defeat his legislative proposals.

The right to keep and bear arms is a basic human right that has kept us free for over two centuries.  With a vigilant citizenry eager to contact their elected officials and make their voice heard, it will continue to be that way.

  1. Why don't you just cut the head of the snake off? Obama is not who he claims to be, never has been, and consequently was never legitimately elected. He is not Constitutionally qualified for the office of the President, so why do you fight from a defensive position of trying to stop his un-Constitutional actions. His occupancy of the oval office is un-Constitutional. Force him to prove that he is Constitutionally qualified to serve as President – he can not. The best defense is a good offense. Get this imposter out of office.

    • Everyone please watch this video – http:/vimeo.com/52009124 – you will see the events over the past 40 years that have been in the making with the founding blocks of Karl Marks up to and connecting the dots to Obama. This is really a must see and should be shared with family-friends-church groups-schools and community at a local town theater.

  2. ILL second Edin Nola. He should be investigated for a lot more than Gun policy.

    "I would consider using Executive Orders to engage in attacks on a constitutionally-protected right and violating his sworn oath of office to be such a trespass."
    What happened to the many other times he HAS trespassed on his sworn oath to, and BLATANTLY trampled, the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States including, but not limited to:

    1) Supplied arms to terrorists and enemies of the United States that was used to murder American citizens in Benghazi.
    2) Circumvented Congress and enacted the Dream Act by executive order.
    3) Committed treason by lying, repeatedly, to the American populous over the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Lying to the American citizens was the reason for the impeachment of Nixon.
    4) Failure to enforce the laws he had sworn to uphold, including but not limited to immigration laws, protection of American citizens, passing of a budget for almost 1400 days.
    5) Again supplied arms to enemies of the United States that has been used to murder American citizens in Mexico.
    6) Enter into two (2) unsanctioned by Congress wars in Libya and Syria. Instead entered only on the approval of the U.N.
    7) Against Article I Section 9, and without the consent of Congress, holds the position of United Nations Security Council Chairman.
    8) Enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (dubbed obamacare) which was deemed unconstitutional, and is illegal under the taxing laws, in which as a tax MUST originate in the House which it did not.

    The list is endless. It is understood that impeachment should be taken seriously and solemnly. The only question is how many more SERIOUS acts of treason are going to be allowed before impeachment proceedings begin?
    Treason is a serious act that had in history been answered with a death sentence.
    On just the list I provided, there is more than enough evidence of fact for each count. No matter how many times we petition our Representatives to hold Obama to standards equal to all previous Presidents, it seems the failure is in the inaction of said representatives. Some how, it's implied that support for the Constitution is deemed to be "racist".
    How disheartening it is that it takes something as simple as an attack on our 2nd Amendment to make our Congress finally take notice of the egregious actions of this "administration".
    Hopefully Congress will finally defend the Constitution of the United States.

    • Not to forget his failure to secure our border with Mexico, of which members of Terrorist Organizations could have already crossed into the U.S. and may be planning another attack on America and her Citizens.

      I would also to 1) the fact that he has given Terrorist Organizations over $3 Billion+ of Taxpayer money, and also has given money to Countries that support and fund Terrorist Organizations. I would use Egypt as an example…he has given them $2 Billion of taxpayer money, and sent then arms that were smuggled into Hezbollah hands in Palestine, and were used against America's only true Allie in the Middle East. Also could be added to 1) his orders to "Stand Down" to Military Units that were just hours (1 to 2 hours depending on what was sent) away…In fact there are reports of an AC-130 Gunship flying overhead of the Firefight and while the brave men that were in the Consulate "Painting" a Target for a Fire Mission for the AC-130, the AC-130 crew was ordered to "Stand Down" as well.

      I would also love to get General Ham and Admiral Gaouette in an Open Session of Congress to see if their refusal to "Stand Down" (which could be viewed as an Illegal Order) was the reason behind their being "Retired".

    • If our representitives wont listen to us, then they should all be fired. America wants action and if they are not going to respond, then we need to get them out of office. They are there to represent us, not themselves.We want proof that obama is a citizen, which I doubt that he is. If he has nothing to hide, then show us proof…simple cut and dried. He is doing nothing to help America and we need to IMPEACH HIM ASAP,. Stand up America before its too late. Prove him the LIAR that he is and get him out of office now. Enough talk, we need action now.He is trying to break America down andhe needs to go now.

    • He deserves to be impeached right now! I only wish we could get rid of Biden too.

  4. I have already contacted my Congress People, both Senators and my Representative, and made it clear to them that if they vote for ANY bills that would infringe upon our rights to own Firearms and current Magazine/Clip sizes, that I will make it my personal Responsibility to make sure that every 2nd Amendment and U.S. Constitutional lover in this State will know how they trampled on the U.S. Constitution and our Rights.

    My House of Representative member, when I talked to him, he told me he has had numerous other people tell him the same thing and that he feels the same way that we do about the 2nd Amendment. He is also aware that the 2nd Amendment wasn't placed in the Constitution for Hunting, Competition Shooting, or Target Practice…but is for Self Defense and as a Bulwark against Federal Overreach (Tyranny)!
