Obama to Defy Spending Prohibitions

Hat tip to David Hardy at Arms And The Law.

President Obama in a signing statement has alluded to his intention to ignore budgetary prohibitions against spending for certain research projects that seek to justify increased gun control.

But David Hardy points out that spending money in ways not authorized by Congress is unconstitutional and illegal.

I wonder, if President Obama proceeds to spend money to fund the prohibited programs, breaking the law, who would enforce the law?  the "Justice" Department?  It is to laugh!
