As Bostonians and the rest of the nation continued to heal from the Boston Marathon bombings, "Piers Morgan Live" spoke to state Sen. Stacey Campfield who defended his controversial joke about pressure cookers in the wake of the bombings.The Tennessee Republican lawmaker posted a blog with a picture of an "assault pressure cooker" under the blog caption, "Here comes Feinstein again," likely intended to mock Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s defeated proposals on an assault weapons ban.
"We're talking about an inanimate object that does nothing by itself," said Campfield comparing a firearm to a pressure cooker. "It does absolutely nothing by itself just like a pressure cooker does absolutely nothing by itself."
"The joke was really about the left and how they push for gun control on inanimate objects just like pushing for spoon control for obesity, it doesn't do anything."
