TN Senator be trollin.

While this would have been benign and un-newsworthy if it had been posted by a regular Joe, it's not a smart move to do shiat like this when you're a Senator.  Keep it classy, guy.  Stick to sending dick picks to your mistresses like everyone else in government.

I have to admit, my grandmother's made some pot roasts in her pressure cooker that could kill scores of people.

I think it's a quick and easy "out" to ignore the conversation, and you're right that it's not trolling. I think they legitimately believe there is no reason to consider guns any differently from any other object, and there is no reason to even track or acknowledge crimes done with guns.

Fortunately, Senator Campfield, in whose district I grew up many moons ago, will not be around to troll us after the next election.  He'll be bankrolled out of office.
 
2013-04-23 10:01:04 AM
Campfield added he didn't think his blog post wasn't insensitive and said that "it just shows the hypocrisy of the left."

Yeah, okay. You just keep on with the classy there, Stacy.

What does it do for the argument that guns are only designed for killing? Because that's normally the one used, not the one you pulled out of your ass.

Pointing out that a position is intensly stupid in addition to being an infringement of fundamental rights is not an endorsement of a less intensely stupid form of the same infringement.

During the State of the Union speech back in January, didn't President Obama say "if we can do anything to protect just one child, shouldn't we do it?" Sure. A child was killed by a pressure cooker. Regulate! It's not trolling, it's using Obama's manipulative tactics against him.

Several guns are designed for competition shooting, and not for actual killing.  It just so happens that they are also very good for killing, but cost hundreds to sometimes thousands of dollars more than another gun designed only for killing.

Run with that. Seriously, keep repeating it. Regulating guns in response to gun violence is the exact same thing as regulating pressure cookers in response to the Boston bombings. Always say that. People will respect you.

Pressure cookers already have way more safety features than a standard pistol.  If you have some suggestions to improve their safely, please go ahead and write them down.

True but even in competition the object is do destroy the object you're shooting at whether it be a paper target or clay pigeons, it is still a tool for destruction. I would say the same for for archery as well.

Repeat my last post, but insert "Obama said that" right before "regulating guns in response". This is an idea that must spread. It is clearly a well-thought out point. You might get Obama impeached over this.

Let's ban guns and you can have all the pressure cookers to defend yourself.

Such a smart argument.

One of my cousins, whom I usually ignore, posted this on Facebook:

My first reaction is that it is illegal to manufacture, possess, or use a bomb. Further we highly regulate the operation of automobiles and most states require people who do so to be insured. So why the pro-gun folks are trying to draw parallels between them is beyond me.

Eh, the "these models are 'assault models' and should be banned because they're scary" argument is stupid and deserves to be mocked.

However, the joke's kind of a dead-horse one at this point, since the people that suggested that argument were mocked, told to fark off, and not allowed to write the bill last time.  The last bill was about background checks and other measures regarded as sensible by basically everyone, and didn't have any of the "assault weapons" stupidity that the .gif is making fun of.

Lord_Baull: Really? Because last time I checked, pressure cookers weren't specifically manufactured to mortally wound stuff.


They're actually pretty dangerous, if you're saying that seriously and genuinely don't know.  I would probably take a kid to a gun range before I let them hang out near even a seemingly properly-working pressure cooker.

I mean, obviously they're not rigged as actual bombs by default, but a latch failure can give you a faceful of boiling oil at four or five paces and they do occasionally explode.  I would treat them with the same if not more respect you'd give a loaded firearm while using them.  If you have kids at your cook-out I'd stick to less dangerous stuff like grilling.
 
2013-04-23 10:34:21 AM
Campfield is the same douchenozzle that wanted to punish poor kids who don't do well in school by effectively taking food out of their mouthes.  Fark him sideways.

One old fool I know thinks that pressure cooker picture is hilarious and somehow insightful.  He also thinks a  graphic suggesting the surviving bomber could someday be an advisor, ala Ayers,  to President Obama is clever.

It's almost as if he is acknowledging that Democrats could very well continue to be elected to the highest office until the year that the bomber gets out of prison....if he ever does.
