With Obama allegedly considering 19 executive orders on guns, Republican lawmakers are launching pre-emptive strikes.
Texas congressman Steve Stockman has announced that he would file articles of impeachment against the POTUS if he takes executive action on gun control, according to the Daily Caller. Stockman called such executive orders "unconstitutional," contra to the second amendment, and "an existential threat to this nation."
"If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist," he said.
Meanwhile back in Texas, a state lawmaker has proposed a bill that would outlaw new federal gun control laws and allow state police to arrest federal officers enforcing them.
