Consider the Source, His Record & Contributors

Republican Rep. Steve Stockman (TX-36) made an outrageous statement.


Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) says he’s willing to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Obama should the White House implement new gun regulations through executive action.

“The White House’s recent announcement they will use executive orders and executive actions to infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms is an unconstitutional and unconscionable attack on the very founding principles of this republic,” Stockman said in a statement. “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.”

Obama is currently reviewing options laid out by Vice President Biden’s task force on gun violence and will announce his plans this week....

Rep. Steve Stockman's campaign finance information is very interesting.
According to Open Secrets, gun rights PACs donated $19,449 to his campaign committee.  Stockman also is know to have engaged in mud-slinging during his campaign (See Washington Post and the Houston Chronicle).
