Williams-Sonoma, the specialty retailer of home furnishings and gourmet cookware with over 250 stores in the United States, has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.
“It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” said Kent, who is the Store Manager of the Williams-Sonoma at the Natick Mall. He referred Patch to corporate for further questions. Williams-Sonoma also has a local branch at Legacy Place in Dedham.
Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website.
Crate & Barrel is still selling pressure cookers in their stores, according to Elizabeth who is the General Manager of the location at the Natick Mall. (Full Story)
What happened to the right to keep and bear pressure cookers? This is BULLSHIT! Oh… only temporary? Well still, I’m not a fan. Trust a bombing to mess up the stew I had planned for late this week. There better not be a quiche tin related massacre between now and the weekend or my life is ruined.
Crate & Barrel… those heartless bastards. *Added to boycot list*
Nothing like temporary bans to restore safety and order in the world.
LOL that’s right… 45 rounds per minute with a semi-automatic AR-15. People are apparently capable of pulling the trigger once every 1.33 seconds. Impressive… OH WAIT…
When people spout scary facts about guns which are hilariously wrong, even if it makes guns look scarier, I correct them just to make them feel dumb. If you can’t pull the trigger at least 2 time per second, you probably have arthritis or some other finger/joint issue. So at 2 rounds per second that would be 120 rounds per minute.
The icing on the cake though is truly the silhouette of the AK-47 they used.
Bravo TIME on your accurate reporting. *slow clap*
California is the frontline in the civil rights battle between public safety and the 2nd Amendment:
This is a kickstarter project with a goal of $65000. If after watching the video you’d like to support the project click on the embed to the left and get your credit card ready. The minimum pledge is $1 (or $10 if you want an HD download of the film). The deadline to show your support is October 5th.
If you want to subtly show your disgust with the gun laws in California, pick up a California Flag “No Right To Bear Arms” t-shirt from ENDO Apparel.
Think the film has potential? I like the idea of a project such as this, but if it’s just going to include interviews with some people and then a lot of derpy classic news clips I’ve seen a million times (and can see still on youtube) then I don’t really see the point in wasting my money or time.
If a $10 pledge included a “shoulder thing that goes up”, i’d likely go for it.
Senator Yee, fighting against law abiding gun owners:
“What I am proposing is to essentially prevent any mechanism that would allow the conversion of an assault weapon into a way that you can fire these magazines upon magazines without effort” -Senator Yee
I have two questions:
How often are what the media likes to call “Assault” rifles used in violent crimes in CA?
What percentage of ”Assault” rifles in evidence right now have bullet buttons or fixed magazines?
I’m pretty sure I already know the answer to both questions… but i’ll humor Senator Yee and support his ban if the answers turn out to be “Very often & most”.
The initial restriction, and this new bill about to be put forward is a typical example of bullshit that does nothing but further inconvenience the law abiding. Go interview 100 gang members and ask them what they think of magazine capacity restrictions, adjustable stocks, and shoulder things that go up. I’ll save you the trouble and let you know in advance you’ll get 100 guys laughing in your face.
This kid totally does not give a shit that he’s talking to the president:
That’s what I love about kids. Some adults on the other hand are so fake and annoying….. There were like 30 of them in that room, acting like Obama was doing something groundbreaking. OMG OMG he’s pumping a bicycle pump!! *continuous camera shutter noise* How “regular guy” of him *continuous camera shutter noise*.
The marshmallow gun was only a single shot… no sign of high capacity marshmallow assault clips or shoulder things that go up… so it’s probably safe from a ban for now. That is until this kid hits highschool and decides to shoot down a police helicopter.
