Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), appearing on C-SPAN’s “National Journal” on Wednesday, said if President Barack Obama exceeds his authority on gun control, “Congress will respond and respond strongly.”

“Obviously we have to see what he proposes, but if he exceeds his authority, I think the Congress will respond and will respond strongly,” Goodlatte said when asked if he could stop funding any measure that the president enacts through executive order on gun control.
