The bombs that ripped through the crowd at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 170, were fashioned out of pressure cookers and packed with metal shards, nails and ball bearings to inflict maximum carnage, a person briefed on the investigation said Tuesday.

Seems like they could check on who bought three or more pressure cookers at one time in the Boston area over the last few months.

Col. David Hunt was on with Howie Carr. His sources say this is not true. He also said two men who are Persons of Interest were taken off a plane at Logan and were yelling in Arabic.

Ban 15 quart pressure cookers! You don't need more than 8 quarts, unless you're up to no good.

We shouldn't expect the US news media to enlighten us, at least until every other news organization on the planet knows what the facts are.

Our journalists are borderline illiterate, apparently, and are pathetically lacking in critical thinking skills.

Seal off the over pressure port, add dry ice and a couple packs of hand warmers. The packets you knead to create a chemical heat, have to be specific as some people do not know what heat packets are, and then you get the all concerned types who start ranting oh great now the terrorists will try that.

They already know how, its just a matter of where and when, best to just profile wherever you go.

“Its high time we had back round checks on people buying pressure cookers and limit their size!”

Oh, crap, I have a fine one stored in a plastic bag. It’s a good thing I got that door mat that reads, “COME BACK WITH A WARRANT”. If I see a Homeland Security brownshirt come to my door and leave, I’ll bury the pressure cooker in the back yard before he/they get back with a warrant.

What does ANYONE need with a pressure cooker, hmmm? Can’t you cook your venison over an open fire? That’s all they had back when the Founders wrote the Second Amendment.

Hey, I’m all for deer hunting and ducks and, like, whatever. All I am saying is you don’t need anything like that. Just get yourself a double-burner gas range, and if a deer tries to get into your house, just blast it through the door. That’s what I tell my wife, Jill...

My guess. The truck was the real bomb. When they couldn’t get close, they used the backup backpacks.

True, but with the present lack of any reason and logic coming out of Washington, if you don’t laugh about it now and then you will soon take a long walk off a short pier that or ducktape the valve on a pressure cooker and put on the stove on HIGH!

As long as they pass background checks, they can buy as many pressure cookers as they want.

It’s typical of FR lately, or maybe it’s always been this way? Idk but it’s tiresome coming to read a news thread and it’s nothing but sarcastic comments, jokes, abortion topic mentioned. So on and so on.

“So what are they going to do about cooking show sells? Not just that but people actually sell these on the web and even on Craigslist!!!!”

I think the Senators will add an amendment to the gun grab bill this week, outlawing the sale of pressure cookers and those that have them now will have to register them and can't resell them or give them away even to family members.

Can pressure cookers go off by themselves without being on a stove with heat on or the lid not being sealed down? The plastic bag with mine in it is under a desk fairly close to my chair because I haven't moved it to the storage closet outside yet. I wonder if I am safe in this chair?

I would think a pressure cooker full of hardware would be heavy.

Surely there are surveillance cameras in that area that would pick up on somebody carrying TWO unusually heavy and/or cumbersome backpacks.

Just tell them you lost it during that unfortunately boating accident. You know, the same one where you lost all your guns.

When I was a young sprout, I used a pressure cooker, once. I know for sure how far stuff from the cooker can fly. I cleaned the kitchen ceiling, floor, walls, table, chairs, and a bit of the hallway.

But, I would have a Ruger 38 Special with P with hollow points with P, and a red laser, pointed at his head.

"My guess. The truck was the real bomb. When they couldn’t get close, they used the backup backpacks."

Depends on the objective. To kill a lot of people, you use a lot of bombs. To knock down a building, use the truck. Shrapnel? My guess - an expert lone bomber sending a message. Tough find - as they say lately 'he's in the wind'.

How queer do you have to be to enjoy a cavity search?

I was thinking the same thing. And would it cause a red flash and smoke? Maybe it was steam but would steam linger that long in the air?

We also need a new tax on ball bearings and shrapnel. I say we tax 25 cents per bearing and 50 cents for each piece of shrapnel.

Funds collected will go to “the children” everywhere...
