It's almost certainly due to atmospheric pressure. Warm it slightly and it will open.
I had the same problem with an underwater dive torch. Left Johannesburg (1000 metres above sea level) and went to Mauritius (10 metres above sea level) and I couldn't open torch!

Pressure cookers are only slightly more complicated than crock pots. In fact, you can think of them as the opposite of Crock pots. Where a crock pot needs 2-3 times as long to cook something, the pressure cooker needs only 1/2 to 1/3 of the time.
These are not that complicated and haven't changed in the last 50 years. The only real hard part is being sure is doesn't explode; not that hard: don't cook things that would foam, like pasta or potatoes. Just read some recipes on the internet or get a recipe book at a bookstore, used book store (super-cheap)or the library. My best advice is to make sure you use the lowest possible heat that still allows steam to escape at a whisper. That will keep things from burning (or scorching) on the bottom, which can give a harsh taste and make clean-up more work. Just do it.
