Second GOP congressman suggests impeachment over executive action for gun control

Posted: January 18, 2013 in 2nd Amendment Gun Grab, Impeachment

A second Republican congressman is suggesting that impeachment should be an option as President Barack Obama takes executive action to enact gun control measures.

In an interview with Florida’s “The Shark Tank,” Florida Republican Trey Radel addressed Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman’s statement that he might seek impeachment if Obama goes forward with executive action to bring about gun control measures.

“All options should be on the table,” Radel responded.

Obama announced 23 executive actions during his Wednesday press conference. (READ: Obama’s 23 executive orders

“It is one of those times in our history, we are at this breaking point,” Radel added, going to to explain, “We have completely lost our checks and balances in this country, the Congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions that he’s making right now, and that why again, I would say that all options should be on the table.”

Radel is a freshman who won former Florida Republican Rep. Connie Mack’s House seat last year.

Monday Stockman said he would look to stop Obama’s executive actions “by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”
