  •  Let's see. In order to make a pressure cooker bomb (2+ / 0-)

    you first need to find instructions. Then read them and understand them. Buy all the parts which could take some time and money. Put it together and hope you don't blow yourself up. (Seems the in thing for wanna be bomb makers to do)

    For a gun you just need to find a place to buy one which can be done with no checks. With all the free adverts in the news just find a local gun show. Some are less expensive than pressure cookers. Put a bullet in, have the safety off and pull the trigger. That simple.

    At least with a pressure cooker one can make some nice meals. Doesn't seem to be any other use for a gun.

    Obviously intelligence is not a requirement for elected office in some places.

    •  I will point out here (0+ / 0-)

      that you do need training and practice with a gun to be able to reliably hit what (or who) you're aiming at.

      However, to be able to shoot and kill somebody, whether or not that somebody is your intended target ... all you need is the gun.
