    As the Attorney General he is required to enforce the laws of the land. Answering that he doesn't intend to enforce a law would probably not go over well. He definitely kept his answers short, not wanting to elaborate which signals that it isn't a top priority for him.

    Besides, it is up to Congress to change/repeal the law, then the question becomes moot.
