TN Legislator jokes about pressure cooker bomb

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, TN (WVLT ) - Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield has taken to his blog to post what he called a "joke" about pressure cookers being used as weapons one week after a pressure cooker was used to bomb the Boston Marathon.

The blog post, titled "Here comes Feinstein again" shows a pressure cooker with different parts labeled as weapons.

When asked if he thought the timing (one week after 3 people died in the Boston Marathon bombings) was insensitive Campfield told CBS affiliate WVLT,  "People need to lighten up."

He elaborated by saying "I say it's insensitive that people go after guns and second amendment rights after the Sandy Hook shooting."
