Let's Control Pressure Cookers

For years preachers have ranted and raved to control the activities of hookers!
Well, I'm proposin' that the guv-mint control the sale and use of pressure cookers!

We've seen the havoc these lethal weapons wreaked upon Olde Boston Towne.
Congress should act, now that the furor over gun control is settlin' down!

There should be background checks on little old ladies who have a yen for one,
And there should be a waitin' period to buy one just as there is for a gun!

Even though they may be designed to hold twelve quarts when locked and loaded,
Congress should limit capacity to six quarts so as not to be accidentally exploded!

I'm really concerned that I broached this urgent matter, upon serious reflection.
I fear some politico might read this and make it an issue to help in his reelection!

    A very clever take on good old banning(a government hobby for which they get paid for). I'm sure my upside-down senators will get right on it.
