Fake Activist ‘Liberal Chick’ Gets Gullible College Students to Sign Petition Banning Pressure Cookers

In the debate that just recently ended over a gun restriction proposal favored by Democrats, supporters of the Manchin-Toomey bill frequently cited polling statistics which allegedly showed 90 percent support for more background checks for gun buyers. What was usually left out of these questions, however, were the details, information that would likely have resulted in fewer people supporting the bill.

Of course, there are certainly many people out there who support banning any number of things deemed to be dangerous by anyone. “If it only saves one life” goes the common refrain. To test that proposition out, fake left-wing activist “Liberal Chick” took to the Florida International University campus to see if she could get students to sign a petition to ban pressure cookers, the devices used in the Boston Marathon bombing but normally used for cooking tasty food.

Given that this was a college campus, the enthusiasm of the naive students to sign up is unsurprising. It is still pretty funny though as you can see in the video below:

This is great material and we hope to see more such spoofs in the future. Liberal Chick, you’ve got a great thing going here.

I also have to wonder what the one student who was able to see how silly banning common objects that can be used for evil purposes thinks about gun control laws.
