    Should we ban pressure cookers?

    We need to ban pressure cookers! The Fifth Amendment protects the rights of the citizens to own property, but that was written several hundred years ago and the world has changed! It's like the liberals always say, our rights are not unlimited. There is no reason anyone ever needs to own such a scary looking pressure cookers, we need to ban them immediately. Or at the very least, we should require all pressure cooker owners to register them with the federal government and obtain permits to buy new ones.

    If we can't ban all pressure cookers, then we can focus on banning assault pressure cookers. These assault pressure cookers have terrifying features, such as handles, lids and pressure indicator pins! These features are simply too terrifying to be allowed to exist! There's no real reason anyone needs an assault pressure cooker anyway, as they're the exact same as non-assault pressure cookers, only with terrifying features!

    Together we can put an end to the National Pressure Cooker Association's stranglehold on Congress and pass meaningful pressure cooker control laws. There's no reason anyone needs to own a pressure cooker anyway, they exist for only one purpose, to support killing! They're used to kill human beings, like we have seen in Boston, and they're used to kill and defile animals! How disgusting, surely we, as a society, have moved past the stage where we devour animals? It's not like eating meat is necessary to stay healthy or anything. Not to mention the fact that there are countless alternatives to pressure cooking, such as stoves, ovens and microwaves! Who needs such a dangerous, scary-looking device anyway? Do you agree that pressure cookers should be banned?

    This even makes your other threads look subtle......

    If the NRA decided bombs were covered under the second amendment, you can be certain the congressmen they've bought would be voting in favor of free access to them.

    Are you serious?

    Is this the new conservative thing? A tragedy occurs and they pounce on it with ridiculous "lets ban X" statements to form some sort of false equivalence to gun control?

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers.

    What is a pressure cooker to begin with?

    Quoted from a cnn comment:

    Too all the "ban pressure cookers" commenters:

    Guns kill on average 28 Americans PER DAY.
    Pressure cookers do not.
    Pressure cookers (and cars) have other primary uses than killing.
    Guns have no other use than killing.

    Use some logic and think.

    When you can't actually defend your position, you change the subject.

    We don't need not-so-subtle threads that are hinting towards the US gun related stuff. We have a thread for that.
