With rumors that Malloy and Murphy are rushing to ban pressure cookers in Connecticut, stores that sell household goods are bracing for a flood of desperate shoppers that like tender food without having to spend all day cooking it. Malloy was thought to have said “its not like I am taking their right to eat away” and “they will just have to stay home and cook it longer, it’s not like they will have jobs” and “ we have to keep the children safe no matter what law abiding people have to give up”. Blumenthal & Schumer are rumored to be preparing a federal pressure cooker ban, Bloomberg a New York city pressure cooler ban, Cuomo a New York State ban, and Feinstein a San Francisco ban. Meanwhile, three Ct manufacturers of pressure cookers are considering moving to Texas. Cooking enthusiast say ”people kill, not pressure cookers” and “and my pressure cooker never hurt anyone”. Obama is searching for people who opened pressure cookers and got burned to parade at his next photo op where press aids say he plans to weep spontaneously for 0.37 minutes.

I believe that everyone should undergo a complete background check including a mental test when purchasing any pressure cooker. Of course, all high capacity (large food volume) cookers will now have to be banned leaving only the smaller (10 carrots or 5 large potatoes, or 1 small pot roast)size available.

I really don't believe pressure cookers add much force to an explosion. Especially if you are using a high explosive like AMFO you do not need any container at all- your only challenge is to detonate the explosive. I doubt a pressure cooker can hold back more than a few dozen pounds.

A lot of this bomb 'knowledge' is nonsense passed around by stone age idiots (muslims) and it really isn't knowledge. For example, look at the bridgeport idiot from Sheridan Street who tried to blow up Times Square. He went to all kinds of trouble to buy a shady car, purchase all kinds of flammable stuff, construct a bomb, including a pressure cooker, and set up a trigger- which didn't work. And it sure isn't hard to set up any one of many kinds of trigger to detonate a bomb. Stoooooopid.

Banning objects never accomplishes anything in terms of impacting evil behavior. This analogy of the gun control arguments applied to cooking pots as a parody points that out. Terrorist acts, whether calculated political acts or the acting out of derangement are about gaining attention. The profit driven media circus responses to these actions provide the reward and as such are the primary causative agent,facilitator, and guarantor of repeat performances. The political pandering and theater is a pathetic sideshow. We deserve better.
So can we have roadside stands that sell grenades and trust that no one will throw one in a movie theater? I'm all for gun rights, and some gun control, but probably not gun control run by democrats.

It is not Ct Governor Malloy's fault he raised a violent criminal son and wants to take everybody's guns away so they can't defend themselves from violent criminals. Oh wait....it is.

The media is making an awful lot of money off these incidents. I'm sure they are doing everything they can to keep them happening.
