Marcus Aurelius: It's a good thing that no one could take an ordinary kitchen pot and weld the lid in place. Because then we'd also have to ban welding equipment.
Nabb1: Marcus Aurelius: It's a good thing that no one could take an ordinary kitchen pot and weld the lid in place. Because then we'd also have to ban welding equipment.Welding a pot filled with explosives? I wonder why that's not an option...
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: As someone who works in a kitchen supply store (seriously), I apologize to America. It's just that the National Preserve Association is a powerful lobby, and they're working for the interests of Big Mason Jar. It's a scary time. Anyways, blame Obama./I really do work in a kitchen supply store//Actually have seen an increase in pressure cooker sales///I'm enough of a capitalist whore to take their money and shut up
Nabb1: I consider myself a responsible, proficient cook, and I know a number of cooks and even chefs, and no self-respecting cook needs a pressure cooker that holds more than six quarts.
syrynxx: I've never owned a high-capacity pressure cooker and I can't even imagine what I would use it for, but now I'm going to go buy one before they're banned.
semiotix: Who has a need or right to own a 23-quart-capacity pressure cooker? And, of course, the individual making and exploding the bomb and enhancing its destructive force with a pressure cooker is not responsible for what happens with it; it's the fault of the evil manufacturers and of the stores that sell the pressure cookers.Richard KingVirginia BeachI'm less frightened by guns than I am by the fact that there are people out there like Richard King of Virginia Beach, who have been sitting there like an undetonated pressure cooker bomb, just waiting for something really farking nasty to happen to people so he can write another one of these letters.You know how everyone's asking how Tamerlan Tsarnaev got "radicalized?" How nobody saw the warning signs when he started tweeting about how he doesn't have a single American friend, or started shouting in the middle of services at his mosque to the point where they kicked him out?I'm raising the question about Richard King of Virginia Beach. This is his screaming-in-the-middle-of-prayers moment. Yeah, a bunch of people woke up in a hospital bed without their legs, but OH SNAP THAT'LL SHOW THE GUN HATERS so it's cool. He's working at Tsarnaev levels of empathy here.Responsible gun owners, you might find the intra-Muslim dialogue these days interesting. It consists of a lot of decent people who haven't done anything wrong having an "oh shiat we need to do something about these guys or we're all farked" moment.
Gecko Gingrich: My wife has a pretty big vegetable garden. It produces more food than we can consume fresh. She cans much of the excess. This requires her 23qt pressure cooker.
FloydA: Gecko Gingrich: My wife has a pretty big vegetable garden. It produces more food than we can consume fresh. She cans much of the excess. This requires her 23qt pressure cooker.So you eat what you can and what you can't you can?
vpb: The funny thing is that there are safety regulations covering pressure cookers. The older ones were kind of dangerous.
Shostie: vpb: The funny thing is that there are safety regulations covering pressure cookers. The older ones were kind of dangerous.If my memory serves me correctly, I believe that the inventor of the pressure cooker was killed by a pressure cooker.
Eddie Adams from Torrance: What we need to register is Muslims.*lights fuse, ducks out of thread*
Myria: What is special about pressure cookers for making bombs?Also, isn't the explosive compound what matters? Wasn't it gunpowder in this case?
Marcus Aurelius: Nabb1: I consider myself a responsible, proficient cook, and I know a number of cooks and even chefs, and no self-respecting cook needs a pressure cooker that holds more than six quarts.If you need more than 6 quarts, you're no longer a cook. You're a canner. And we all know what THOSE people are like.
Steak_Cake_Sause: Was it a Fox News person? It sounds like Fox.The link doesnt work
diaphoresis: Actually, why not chip them? That way we can nuke them from orbit./It's the only way to be sure
BokChoy: pressure cookers with a bayonet mount
JohnnyApocalypse: Terrorism is an American wet dream.The right can drum up the fear and lobby for tougher crime laws, increased military intervention, and really play up the need for racial profiling.The left can drum up the fear and lobby for a nannier nanny state, taking away our ability to protect ourselves and cook for large groups.Both would rather you go to work and come home and watch television, think pablum thoughts, and buy harmless junk... lots and lots of harmless junk. Preferably over the internet, which they want to be tracked and regulated like everything else in our lives. Long live the Cogs!
