Tell Congress: File Articles of Impeachment, Convict Obama for Unconstitutional Executive Actions!

The Congress must take action and oppose Barack Obama's January 16 executive efforts! Obama's anti-Second Amendment executive usurpations must not go unchecked!

“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.” - Rep. Steve Stockman on Anti-Gun Executive Action

On January 16, Barack Obama made his biggest push for gun-control yet – twenty-three executive actions worth!

That’s right, after delivering a speech on his plan to curb “gun violence” – in which he urged Congress to pass legislation to ban so-called assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, limit ammunition access, among other things – Obama signed twenty-three executive actions, setting into motion his plan to further dismantle the Second Amendment.

Included in his nearly two-dozen actions were three pieces of presidential memoranda:

Executive Action 1: Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

Executive Action 9: Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

Executive Action 14: Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

Not only will the enforcement of these three orders cost the taxpayers dearly, all of them are flat-out unconstitutional.

Obama made it clear that wanted “universal background checks” in place for future gun-purchases. Let’s ask this question: What role does the President have in intra-state commerce? None. While the Congress is vested with constitutional power to legislate issues that relate to interstate commerce, the House and Senate have no power to legislate what a state does with commerce within its own borders without amending the Constitution to give them that authority. This is to say that the Executive, then, only has power to enforce laws that deal with commerce between the states and no power over commerce within states themselves. The Tenth Amendment reserves all non-enumerated powers that are not prohibited by the Constitution to the states, not the federal government.

Further, the memorandum that effectively establishes a national gun-registry is also unconstitutional. With what power can the president require guns to be registered in all of the fifty states? That Obama wishes to use his station to legislate what Congress has not is simply an abuse of power and must be rejected.

As far as the presidential order calling the CDC to research the causes and prevention of gun violence: without the House, all of the needed funds are unauthorized. Yes, Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 – the “power of the purse” clause – prevents any part of the federal government from spending a single penny without legal appropriations, which must always originate in the House. Presidential orders such as this – which do not consult Congress’ lower chamber, but require vast amounts of funds – violate the “power of the purse” clause, and are, therefore, unlawful. (In fact, under the Antideficiency Act any federal “officer” or “employee” of the government, the president qualifying, can be imprisoned and removed for violating the “power of the purse.”)

These stated: the Congress must take action and oppose Barack Obama’s January 16 executive efforts! Obama’s anti-Second Amendment executive usurpation must not go unchecked!

Take Action: Sign the petition and send messages to your lawmakers demanding that articles of impeachment be filed by the House against the President and conviction be brought against him by the Senate!

Any public official who is complicit with Obama and Co.'s efforts to undermine The US Constitution, through inactivity to defend the rights of their respective electorate, is as guilty as Obama and his legions. Elected officials actions, lack of action, and votes are being watched by alert citizens. You elected officials stand up and defend your citizens! No compromises! We are watching!
