BOSTON (AP) — Federal agents zeroed in Tuesday on how the Boston Marathon bombing was carried out — with kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and other lethal shrapnel — but said they still didn’t know who did it and why.

An intelligence bulletin issued to law enforcement and released late Tuesday includes a picture of a mangled pressure cooker and a torn black bag the FBI says were part of a bomb.

    Please God in heaven tell me that you know this isn't real? It's a farce from Facebook (hardly a news source) substituting pressure cooker for gun in New York's new gun laws.

    Pressure cooker bombs have been used for year around the world. We didn't ban fertilizer after Timothy McVay or Ryder trucks.

    People need to get a grip and quit following the latest conspiracy theorist. Or at the very least, check out their rate of "success" of foretelling the black helicopters, birth certificates, gun grabs, etc before you buy into this nonsense.

    ALBANY, NEW YORK -- Acting swiftly in response to the Boston Marathon bombings,
    New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York Legislature late last night
    passed emergency legislation making New York the first state to prohibit the
    sale of pressure cookers. Under the legislation, owners of pressure cookers
    with a capacity of more than 10 quarts will have one year to dispose of them
    out-of-state. Owners of pressure cookers with capacities of 10 quarts or less
    may keep them, but may not fill them with more than 7 quarts unless on a gas
    range. In a widely anticipated technical amendment needed to correct an
    evident oversight in the haste to get the new law passed, it is expected that
    celebrity cook-offs held in connection with political fundraisers will also be
    exempted from the assault cooker ban, which is now the strictest pot law in the
    nation.

    The Governor is a nut case!

Should Oregon change its law requiring attendants to pump gas?

Drivers in New Jersey could soon pump their own gas under a bill being introduced in the Assembly. Under current law residents are not permitted to pump their own gas. New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states that require attendants to pump gas. Should Oregon change its law? Send comments to gobrien@heraldandnews.com
