And This Is One Of The More Rational Responses

OK republicans, look we get it. You don't like President Obama. He's black, he's smart, he's black, sharp dresser, good at sports, he's black, articulate and can read. Did we mention he's black? But sweet Jebus on a cornstalk Stockman, give it a rest will you?
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. 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.
You forgot to include stuffing beans up your nose and holding your breath until you pass out. First of all, President Obama hasn't issued any executive orders yet so shouldn't you sort of wait until you read them--assuming they even come--before you decide if they're unconstitutional or not? Just a thought. And what the heck is  "defunding the White House" anyway? Are you going to refuse to pay the electric bill or something? Cut off the president's cable? And impeachment? Seriously? You really think the president is worried that some cracker peckerwood  from the backwoods of Texas is going to be able to make a case for impeachment? Here's a clue friend: Just because you can type communist, socialist, Marxist, Muslim in all caps does not necessarily mean you have a strong argument.
The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation.
Yeah, umm...maybe we can help you out here. See, an existential threat is a threat to all human kind, like an asteroid, or a super volcano, so unless you're saying that cutting back on the number of guns a bunch of overfed, undereducated Bubbas with penis issues can have will end civilization, then...ah...not so much.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms is what has kept this nation free and secure for over 200 years.
Sadly, no. The military has been what's kept us free for over 200 years, or at least been a big part of it, and guess what, when you join, they give you a gun, so no need to bring your own. See how this works?
The very purpose of the Second Amendment is to stop the government from disallowing people the means to defend themselves against tyranny.
Apparently you have the Tinfoil Hat Club's version of the Constitution there, Stockman old buddy. Our version reads "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."  See, the Founders were not big fans of having a standing army when there wasn't a war going on, so they thought the Militia idea was the way to go. Plus back then everybody already had guns anyway since Kroger hadn't been invented yet, so people had to go out in the woods to find dinner. You may have noticed that today we have both a standing army and a Kroger. Any of this getting through?
Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person.
 Try telling that to the TSA guy on your way to board a plane.
The President’s actions are not just an attack on the Constitution and a violation of his sworn oath of office – they are a direct attack on Americans that place all of us in danger.
Hey, we're Americans and we have to tell you, we'd actually feel a little safer if people who have the tendency to fly off the handle and over react to every perceived slight didn't have as easy of a time getting their hands on a gun as they do now. By the way Mr. Stockman, you don't have a gun, do you? 

Oh, and speaking of overreacting, no Don Dwyer, the fact that there are gays in the world did not force you to get drunk and crash your boat into a five year old.
