I think all of America is cheering right along with them.
There's been two recent times I can think of where the authorities were baffled for weeks and never did get to question the person they were after. This was some good work.

Only if the capacity is greater than 3.5 qts.
New York already has it in the works.
Forty Caliber's new pressure cooker is grandfathered in in Texas

I've had that same thought. Law abiding citizens will now be criminals for buying and selling pressure cookers. Watch out....maybe background checks before purchasing them will do the trick.

I have that cooking for one problem too. I buy pancakes already made and frozen. They're smallish and toast up easily, no thawing required. A couple or three brown & serve sausages in the microwave and breakfast is ready in a jiffy.

I'm not a big fan of syrup either, I just butter the pancakes. and use a very small amount of maple syrup on the sausages.

As a by-product, it would seem that we Americans now have (if we didn't already have starting back at 9/11) had a taste of what people in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, Palestine, not-that-long-ago Northern Ireland, Pakistan -- soooo many people ---- deal with every day in just trying to live.

I was wishing the other day that the nuclear genie could get stuffed back into the bottle; wish that, too, about gun powder/bomb-making parts/TNT. Sorry, .40, Pac, and others. Not gonna happen anyway, so let me dream on.

Back to the cave, everyone! Before those arrows can get us! Here comes Oop with his club.

It didn't take long to realize I had overlooked so many other places. These just didn't come to mind immediately...England, France, Spain, Indonesia, Japan, India...not a complete list by any means. Where in the world could one go to escape violence and the fear of attack? Maybe to Tom Hanks' island with a basketball for a friend.

My first thought was "Scandinavia", then I remembered the car bombing and shootings in Norway in 2011.
