Inappropriate? Me? Never!

I Just got a call from the media saying they had gotten a few calls (about a blog post I did) saying it was inappropriate after the Boston bombing.



Really?

If my post was inappropriate  talking about "crock pot control" then where is the outrage from the left when they push for gun control after the Sandy Hook shooting? Im sorry if I exposed your double standard....

 Well, not really.

  1. Last I checked, there is a huge difference between firearms and cookware. Firearms are created solely for the purpose to destroy, whether it is a target or a living creature. Cookware is designed, in the most basic form, to craft culinary creations. There is a huge difference.

    The argument is also invalid when you consider you are talking about a pressure cooker that has been modified to do something beyond its original purpose, as opposed to firearms, which by default have the one purpose mentioned earlier.

    This isn't a case of apples to oranges. This is apples to celestial objects. They are completely separate.

    2. Cookware is used to cook the meat that firearms put on the table, therefore they are just as dangerous because they promote the use of firearms. We should all become Vegans and eat only salad in order to rid the world of the scourge of firearms and cookware.

    3. They are both tools, nothing more. I believe the Senator's point is that tools, being inanimate objects, are not the cause of their misuse by people who are capable of discerning right from wrong.

    4. Absolutely two different issues. And Senator, to continue your argument in defense of your post by using the gun control issue, is ignorant. I'm from Boston by the way and what happened was nothing to joke about. You're supposed to represent the people. Not SOME people, but ALL American people, and make decisions based on the benefit of the greater good. Your stance on gun control is fine but irrelevant to your mockery of a terrorist act that kill and permanently injured people.

    5. Where is the left's outrage over the 1.21 Million children murdered every year through abortion, oh that's right it's perfectly acceptable if a pair of sciccors or a vacuum hose is used, performed by a "doctor". I wonder how many hypocrite liberals were in the abortion chair while they watched and demanded more gun control because, "if we can save just one!". The liberal uterus is more dangerous to human life then the gun can ever hope to be, a few hundred times over. Double standard is all liberals know how to do.

    9. Last I checked guns were made to protect. I am thankful for guns, because my father had to use them more then once to protect or family. We were broken into, and we also had problems with a group of men while camping, and that was in the 80's. We were a bunch of young teenage girls 12-18 camping, and the men came and said they were staying with the girls....there was Moms and one other Dad there. My Dad pulled a gun and said if you lift your leg off that motorcycle I will kill you...and I may not be able to kill all of you but you sir will be the first. I am nerves my hand is shaking and nothing worse in a nervous mans hand then a gun...they drove away...One Mom popped out of the tree and said I had your back she had a riffle pointed on them. Guns are good in the right hands!

    10. A firearm isn't dangerous until ammo is also purchased, the ammo then loaded into the firearm, and then the firearm used recklessly- pointed at another human being, and the trigger pulled if the intent is to harm or kill.

      A pressure cooker isn't dangerous until....you know the rest.

      Delete
    11. First - you are looking at the "tool" as only a pressure cooker. In its complete form, it is a weapon and that weapon is to DESTROY and kill.

      BOMBS are *NOT* used to hunt (not by SANE people. Bombs are *NOT* used to defend the average home SANE owner. Guns CAN be and are.

      "AnonymousApril 22, 2013 at 6:30 PM"'s thinking is like thinking that a component of a bomb in and of itself may be safe.

      GASOLINE is "safe" until you put it on someone and light them up.

      When there is a bombing, people blame the bomber.
      When there is a shooting, people blame the gun.

      Delete
    12. * Bombs are not used for hunting BY SANE PEOPLE.
      * Bombs are not used in self defense BY SANE PEOPLE.
      *Guns can be and are used to do both BY SANE PEOPLE.

      "Anonymous @April 22, 2013 at 6:30 PM"'s thinking is COMPLETELY OFF

      Comparing ONLY A COMPONENT of a bomb to a gun is just a false comparison at best. Its like saying a battery is not the same as a gun which is just silly.

      Its like saying a tire is not a car and therfore not as dangerous. While that is TRUE - it is very disingenuous.

      love the fact Harry Reid introduced a bill Tuesday "the Explosive Materials Background Check Act" when fireworks were used as the explosive compound, and the gun used had the serial number obliterated (illegal) and that none of the laws proposed would of stopped any of the tragedies.

      Stop the attacks on the Rights of law abiding citizens, if you don't, I foresee 1994 mid term election results again.

  3. Your crockpot control post essentially is joking about the means of death, injury, and mutilation suffered only a week ago by victims in Boston. Those who want gun control are not joking about guns, background checks, Sandy Hook, victims, etc. In fact, they are doing what they believe is best for preventing these kind of tragedies from occurring so frequently. Your post does nothing to help anyone, yourself included.

    4. If you want *effective gun control* make it a deterrent to commit a crime with a gun instead of the mambly pambly wrist slaps criminals get today which in no way discourages them.

      Focus on punishing the criminal more harshly and not MASSES of law abiding citizens who own guns and do not break the law.

  5. You make me ashamed to live in Tennessee. First of all, you are obviously classless which transcends political ideology. Secondarily, your antiquated views of the world make you a liability for those who live in.

    Crockpots are cook wear that evil men convert to weapons. Firearms are weapons that evil men don't have to convert. Based on your simplistic comparison you could put picture of anything on here because basically anything can be used as a weapon - but the fact that you choose to put a picture of a crockpot in light of the recent events shows how truly tasteless you are.

    The country needs a commonsense approach to things and you obviously do not have that. There is no reason for high powered/high capacity firearms. Give me one purpose that cannot be accomplished with something else. People use them for hunting? Yeah, I used rifles growing up and my grandfather told me that if you can't kill the animal with 2 shots then you should not be hunting because that just becomes cruelty.

    People like you get so entrenched in your views that you refuse to understand that they world has changes. You, sir, are a relic of the past and only once we have representation that truly is neither Republican nor Democratic but American will we move forward. Until then we are simply quagmired in the same partisan muck that has paralyzed this country for years.

    1. I'd disagree. I think we need more people who are willing and able to see how ridiculous people can be.

      Good job Senator!

      BTW, the 2nd Amendment doesn't mention anything about hunting.

      Delete
    2. The 2nd amendment is a relic of the past. It was written for two reasons.

      The first was that the British empire tried to disarm citizens so the founding fathers wanted to create a distinct separation from that.

      The second was that America was weakened after the revolutionary war and there was a legitimate concern that it was exposed to invasion by another country (like France or Spain) or a reconstituted force in conjunction with Britain. They wanted armed citizens in the even that something like that happened.

      The Constitution needs to evolve with time. It was written over 200 years ago when guns were widely inaccurate, single shot and took 2-3 minutes to reload. That is no longer the case.

      Prohibition was an amendment and it was considered a mistake. Segregation was not included in the constitution and then added later to help the document evolve.

      I have no problem with the right to bear arms, but just like I can't own a rocket launcher, there needs to be reasonable limits placed on what that means given our culture and where we are in history.

      Delete
    3. So let me get this straight...

      One item which is ordinarily harmless but can be easily used to kill and injure large numbers of people does not require additionally limits on said item.

      One item which is ordinarily harmless but can be easily used to kill and injure large numbers of people does require additionally limits on said item, even if those limits do nothing to prevent misuse of that item.

      You think weapons are inherently immoral. Therein lies the flaw in your thinking, anon.

    4. "Based on your simplistic comparison you could put picture of anything on here because basically anything can be used as a weapon"

      See, you sort of get it. ANYTHING *CAN* BE A WEAPON. A hammer, crowbar, kitchen knife, screw driver, torque wrench...etc.

      It has EVERYTHING to do with the INTENT of the person. NOT THE TOOL (to include guns).

      Notice when bombs are used, people blame the bomber. When a gun is used, people blame the gun and not the person.

      GAS, if misused can kill many but I don't see you screaming to ban it.

      Punishing law abiding citizens is stupid at best.
      More HARSHLY Punish those that commit the violent crimes especially with guns/bombs.

What about drinking and driving, texting while driving the list goes on, these thing kill to but no body wants to stop it

  9. This continual conservative rhetoric about "what's next" is tiring. As one of the other commentors mentioned, pressure cookers are made for a primary purpose unrelated to killing and maiming. Same for automobiles, knives, and the litany of other items that y'all bring up as "on Feinstein's radar" for possible government control. NONE of the other items are made specifically to KILL. And that is what a gun is: a killing machine. My husband told me never to shoot without that intention, so I won't learn.
    You and your party continue to work with the money people to misinform and confuse your less-informed constituents. But you already know that....

    1. I would agree that there is a huge difference between the various objects discussed here. A hammer is different than a gun and that's different from a pressure cooker.

      They all have one thing in common though... They don't just kill by themselves. I have never once had to fend off a attack by a bunch of hammers in my garage.

      So the problem isn't with the objects at all. It's with people. Instead of focusing on the objects, perhaps we can focus on the people.

      What might this involve? Perhaps we educate parents that it's not OK to babysit their kids by plopping them down in front of a XBox playing Medal of Honor all day? Perhaps our mental health services need improvement? Perhaps firearm owners should be held responsible for securing their firearms in order to prevent theft and unauthorized use?

      Delete
    2. Who's misinforming and confusing less-informed constituents? Feinstein's a classic example of not knowing what she's talking about; have you seen her bit on "the shoulder thing that goes up?"

      You're right that firearms are made to destroy. However, what you fail to realize is that police are citizens too, subject to the same laws and regulations you or your neighbor are. Are you saying you'd disarm the police as well?

      I'm not saying "what's next," I'm saying "Stop with the self righteous banter about how the second amendment isn't relevant, and quit attempting to stomp on the rights of free men."

      And drop it with the whole "you and your party" garbage. This shouldn't be about left/right. This is why everybody hates each other - it's all about what side you're on, instead of coming up with a viable solution that doesn't trample free mens' rights.

    3. "My husband told me never to shoot without that intention"

      Cute. So your argument is, I never picked up a firearm because if I do I would have to shoot someone and because of this belief neither should anyone else own a firearm be it for recreation, sport, or a fundamental Right as stated in the Constitution.

      Wow talk about a overly emotional, arrogant, and ignorant position to defend your gun control stance.

  10. I agree Senator! Where were Feinstein and all the gun control people before Sandy Hook? Then suddenly that's all they can talk about?? If they were so concerned about it personally, as opposed to politically, they would never have let it go after Columbine.

    They don't seem concerned that the majority of the gun incidents involved legally bought weapons. Feinstein loves to be the lead when it comes to knee jerk, popular, make you feel good reactions.

    This post has all to do with the real possibility that she and her friends will be coming up with bills to make pressure cookers safer, advocating background checks for fireworks, nails, ball bearings, etc. When do we stop outlawing a new thing every time someone uses it for evil, and start dealing with the reasons why they perform the evil? It has nothing to do with joking about the violence.

    If Feinstein has her way, no one but the criminals dealing illegally would have access to anything but duct tape, water, and a stick to make fire. At least until someone gets beat with the stick, then we could outlaw those too. If you believe outlawing all dangerous, or potentially dangerous objects is the solution, visit your local corrections facility. They are some of the most dangerous places around, a place where you can literally make a knife out of toilet paper.

  12. Stick to your guns, er pressure cookers, Senator. Never apologize to appease political correctness. The hypocrisy of the left is so blatant. If we ban guns, if we require background checks, then we should also do so for knives, baseball bats, fertilizer, smoking, cars, and drinking alcohol, each of which kills hundreds and thousands each year.

    2. Actually the term 'Assault weapon' is a term made up by the gun control lobbyists. For example, if you look at the FBI reports on crime, they don't mention 'assault weapon'. They mention 'rifles' or 'handguns'.

      That said though, 'arms' can be defined as any firearm in common use.

  15. Senator: Anonymous misses the obvious inconsistency (purposefully, I assume). The proper use of both pressure cookers and firearms is NOT murder. PCs are for creating wonderful culinary delicacies; firearm are for defense of self and home and secondarily, sport. It makes as much sense to ban pressure cookers as it does to ban guns. Bad people using ANY instrument to commit murder is what should be abhorred by society. Banning any or all firearms (or pressure cookers) will not keep thugs and weasels from their dirty work. Swift and sure punishment (including death in the case of murder) is the only reasonable deterent.

  16. Dear Sir, I was born and raised in TN, I now reside in KS. I heard through the grapevine you were now being charged with "insensitivity". Ridiculous! You should know you are not alone in these jokes about outlawing pressure cookers. My 17 year-old son and I were at an estate auction last weekend; the owner, a avid canner, had about 6 or 7 pressure cookers ranging in size. The ongoing joke for the day, among everyone there, was you needed a license to buy. This is the thought among the American public. Never fear, we do get the joke reflecting that even a pressure cooker in the wrong hands can be used for more than the avid canner use, like our firearms. Sir, stay the course!

    As an elected official of your/our great state, are suppose to stand above the rhetoric and act in a civilized manner as what the best the state has to offer. These childish actions done in obvious poor taste sets the conservative movement back to to 1900's.

    Your cavalier activities and total lack of social awareness show a complete and utter lack of and educated and well thought out argument which we expect out of our elected officials.

    You say you speak for your constituents, but as you state you "average guy with a real cool job" is a paraphrase of the full thought. It should read "An average guy with a lower than average knowledge of what he talks about, who is LUCKY to have a real cool job destroying the what credibility sane conservatives have left."

    Maybe instead of thinking your job is "cool", maybe get educated on bills you vote for or bring up for a vote.

So, you're right senator, better to take a broad brushstroke to interpret the law without regard for history, technology, progress, etc. and DO NOTHING, while people use inanimate objects to break the laws you seem inept at interpretting, much less bettering or championing.

  35. We must share a brain, I posted this on my FB yesterday:


    "STOP THE BLOODSHED !!!
    What we need are tougher laws and more regulation. I propose deep background checks with ATF, CIA, NSA, and Interpol, and a one month "cooling off" period in order to purchase a Pressure Cooker.

    Score 1 for tacky, tasteless humor. \o/ (And, yes, I do know I'm going to Hell for this. I've stockpiled giant marshamllows.)"

  36. The point of the uproar- at least for me- has absolutely nothing to do with the right to own a firearm one way or another. How hard is it for Campfield- and some of you other nuts to realize it's not the underlying message, it's that you were dumb enough to joke about the attack. The libs may be off there rocker with gun control fever, but at least I didn't see any of them making jokes about Sandy Hook.

    The only reason I’m ticked is that Campfield made a classless and insensitive remark just days after the worst terrorist attack since 9/11. Since when does standing up for the 2nd amendment mean that we should forget about thinking how joking about a subject matter may impact the victims of these attacks? Something tells me Stacey- or any of the others supporting this sick “joke”- does not have the guts to go up to Boston and parade around with that image on a poster board. I also bet none of you would have the guts to go up and say some of this stuff face to face with someone from MA either. If not, then you are just hiding behind your keyboards. If you can’t tell your joke to a victim's face, then you shouldn’t say it at all.

    I’ll be downright shocked if the good Senator bothers to post this message.

    1. Anonymous, you need to understand that Senator Campfield is not "joking" about what happened in Boston. He is a very sensitive and caring person, and I can assure you that he grieved this horrible event as much as the rest of us did.

      Mr. Campfield is a lawmaker, a State Senator, and, as saddened as he must be about the marathon bombings in Boston, his thoughts simply run along the lines of the laws. Since he has been heavily involved in issues regarding second amendment rights, here in Tennessee, for the past year or two, it is only natural for him to think along these lines. He means no disrespect to the people who were victims of the bombings.

      Had he not made the comparison of pressure cookers to guns, he would have missed an excellent opportunity to help people understand how stricter gun laws make no sense. Please cut him some slack.

    Thank you, Senator

    Media with the double standard, you are coward and stupid. 99% people is not stupid, they just get smarter than stupid media.

  39. I'm mostly just offended that you brought the innocent crock pot into a discussion about the evils of pressure cookers. They are different!

  40. This post is patently offensive. Why would you bring the innocent crock pot into a discussion of the evil pressure cooker? They are not the same. Crock pots are innocent and free.

  41. Good for you Senator. Atleast someone has some common sense and backbone to point out the double standard and the obvious bias of the left when it comes to inanimate objects.

  43. Honestly, look at all of these "offended" people and their complaints. What you was was "inappropriate". "Inapprooooooopriate". Give me a break. "I was in Boston, don't XYZ me about DEF." GIVE ME A BREAK YOU MORON LIBERAL SCUM!

    These people have no idea whats going on in this country. They can't learn from history to save their lives. The left in this country is so far removed from common sense its sickening. Face it, you gun-o-phobes LOST. YOU LOST! Facts, logic and reason were never on your side, but the sad part is that facts and reality were barely a factor in the fight against the leftist control freak agenda. It came down to people who believed in history making themselves heard over the drumbeat of media, who was clearly just parroting the establishment rhetoric.

    And here we have a crowd of PATHETIC, useful-idiot LIBERALS attacking someone for pointing out just one of the double standards these leftist freaks live by. Not the proven-in-court voter fraud, not the Constitutional violations, not the outright lies and deceit, but simple double standards! And they're out in droves acting as apologists! You sick liberal freaks are DESTROYING AMERICA!

    Next we're going to legislate 30 million illegals in here and water down the voter boxes to the point where America isn't even behind the wheel anymore!
