Barack Obama prides himself on being the most popular president ever. However, a growing number of lawsuits against him is giving him the dose of reality he has so desperately needed.
He can’t ignore his “haters” anymore…
In the wake of Obama’s Gun Control Legislation, he has come under fire by many conservative groups. Obama has just been hit with the tragic news that he will finally have to appear in court.
AdvertisementWell, tragic for him, but I’m celebrating right now.
One of those groups has finally taken action and announced that they will be filing a formal lawsuit against the President for his unlawful actions.
As reported by The Hill:
On the same day the Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to Obama’s action on immigration, the conservative advocacy group Freedom Watch announced it is filing a lawsuit against the controversial gun orders.
Freedom Watch accuses Obama of circumventing Congress to “invent” new gun laws.
“The President states that he is doing so purely because he does not like the legislative decisions of the Congress,” wrote Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, who is also a National Rifle Association member.
“These actions are unconstitutional abuses of the President’s and executive branch’s role in our nation’s constitutional architecture and exceed the powers of the President as set forth in the U.S. Constitution,” he continued.
This is believed to be the first in what is expected to become a series of legal challenges over Obama’s gun orders. But many legal experts predict the executive action will prevail.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. In addition to Obama, it also names as defendants Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Thomas Brandon, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
