Elon Musk says his Boring Company has sold $5 million worth of flamethrowers since pre-orders opened over the weekend. Now, a politician in California is trying to ban them for the public.
The flamethrowers cost $500 a pop. They shoot fire under 10 feet in length, which according to Musk makes them "A-ok" legally.
Miguel Santiago, the politician trying to ban them, at first thought the devices were a joke. He called it "terribly insensitive" given that California is recovering from devastating wildfires.
Santiago reportedly plans to introduce legislation to block selling them to the public.
