Re: State attorney general won’t defend gay marriage ban
I'm no lawyer, but as far as I understand, there is no express means of removing an unconstitutional law. There is the long process of electing a new Congress that can repeal the law. So it seems that the founders felt that it was up to the people to make it known to Congress that they don't want that law. As far as the President, he would be acting unconstitutionally himself if he ignored laws.

This country would have to be radically different if we had a Congress that would pass a veto proof law shutting down freedom of the press. If we elected people like that, I would think that the Constitution would be meaningless to the people.
