Stacey Campfield Won't Apologize for Pressure Cooker Photo, Slams "Tasteless" Gun Control Efforts

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Stacey Campfield is not about to apologize.

The Republican State Senator posted a photo on his blog this week that featured a pressure cooker and the words "Assault Pressure Cooker (APC)" printed below it, a reference to the items that were used for bombs last Monday at the Boston Marathon.

The post was titled "Here comes Feinstein again," a clear dig at gun control advocate Diane Feinstein, as Campfield sees hypocrisy in anyone criticizing the picture as inappropriate.

"I think it's tasteless when Obama will drag everybody he can up to Capitol Hill and try to pass gun control," Campfield told ABC News today. "I think that was classless and tasteless. I don't hear them complaining about that too much."

Campfield, who made news in February for telling a pro-gay constituent to seek therapy, added of the photo:

"I was showing the hypocrisy of Diane Feinstein, the gun grabbers, of their inability to realize that it is a person that does activity, not an inanimate object, be it a gun or a pressure cooker."

In a follow-up post, Campfield addressed critics who have said his initial image (below) was out of line:

"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 [sic] sorry if I exposed your double standard....Well, not really."

Really? How did Stacey get elected? I bet after his comments some or most people, regret that voted for him in Tennesse as their choice. I personally dont own a gun/rifle and want reasonable gun laws. I dont want them to take away another person's gun. I want the ability to buy one if i feel the need for one.
I don't understand how so many representatives FAIL see the big picture on guns and violence.

WOW....and that retard represents something LOL no wonder this country is in the shitter....keep em..He represent the actual attitude of what US citizen demands...they keep voting them in. PS...on the Boston bombing.. the incompetent CIA and FBI knew about the two brothers who terrorized Boston....the FBI and CIA are only good after the damage is done...they already know where the terrorists live...why intervene when they can show how quickly they capture the evil that they left walking our streets in the first place.

Please don't reelect Stacey Campfield. He is a total disgrace, especially after listening to his comments on Pierce Morgan. We will never be able to live peacefully and safe here in the US with lawmakers like him.
