Following President Barack Obama’s recent unilateral executive actions on gun control, many have wondered what can be done to push back against an overreaching executive branch.
Republican Rep. Steven Palazzo of Mississippi has an idea for pushing back: He is asking his colleagues in Congress to officially censure Obama for his unconstitutional actions, according to Breitbart.
“The American people demand that we fight back against this president’s overreach, and this is the best way we can fight and win,” Palazzo proclaimed.
He followed up his call for the censure of Obama with a press release to his congressional website, explaining why Obama must be censured and noting that there was precedent for such an action.
“For seven years, the president has gradually expanded his powers through executive overreach,” Palazzo wrote. “His actions this week to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens is just the latest, if not most egregious, violation of the separation of powers found in the United States Constitution.”
