ALBANY, NEW YORK -- Acting swiftly in response to the Boston Marathon bombings, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York Legislature late last night passed emergency legislation making New York the first state to prohibit the sale of pressure cookers. Under the legislation, owners of pressure cookers with a capacity of more than 10 quarts will have one year to dispose of them out-of-state. Owners of pressure cookers with capacities of 10 quarts or less may keep them, but may not fill them with more than 7 quarts unless on a gas range. In a widely anticipated technical amendment needed to correct an evident oversight in the haste to get the new law passed, it is expected that celebrity cook-offs held in connection with political fundraisers will also be exempted from the assault cooker ban, which is now the strictest pot law in the nation.

When pressure cookers kill as many people as guns do, I will be happy to entertain your straw man argument.

When guns kill more people than medical malpractice we will listen to your overly emotional nonsensical blabbering.

When there is something really ignorant to be said, you can count on a republican to say it.

Your bias prevents you from seeing the humor of pointing out the obsurd, by being obsurd.

Us liberals believe everyone has a right to express their thoughts, as long as they are the same as ours. If not, you're a crazy nut job. We know best, just ask us. If you don't, we'll tell you anyway.

You and the first poster have an absolute right to your lies. It doesn't change the fact that it was a lie.

Guns and pressure cookers don't kill people as they are inanimate objects. People choose to kill people with what ever is available. Blaming the gun is down right moronic.

What is a lie - that Cuomo wants to ban pressure cookers?

Maybe you are saying that because it points out the stupidity of the Sfe Act?

Guns are unique because they were created and developed further for the exclusive purpose of harm, something which a modern society should not be encouraging. Trying to compare them to devices with a primarily peaceful purpose is even more idiotic.

Well then millions upon millions of gun owners are using their firearms incorrectly. Only a small portion of CRIMINALS use them to hurt people.

Any device can be used for the purpose of causing harm. A pressure cooker IED is one of the more common types. Also knife, hammer, scissors, baseball bat, pipe wrench, household chemicals, antifreeze etc. Automobiles have been used many times to purposely run over people or drag them to their death.
