California’s efforts to restrict Elon Musk’s flamethrowers go down in flames

California’s efforts to restrict Elon Musk’s flamethrowers go down in flames.
A California state bill that would have more heavily regulated the use of flamethrowers has now effectively fizzled out in a legislative committee.
In light of this development, there’s nothing to stop Boring Company customers in California from receiving the company’s sold-out flamethrowers.

Elon Musk on May 26: “@BoringCompany holding flamethrower pickup parties in a week or so…”

In the wake of Musk’s February marketing stunt to sell what he dubbed “Not a Flamethrower,” Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) authored a bill that would have imposed more restrictions on their acquisition and use.
