I Want One! Facing possible ban, Americans are buying new—and legal—$900 flamethrowers

In the wake of two companies now selling the first commercially available flamethrowers in the United States, at least one mayor has called for increased restrictions on their use. And to no one’s surprise, the prospect of prohibition has now driven more sales.

    Next the bastards will be trying to take away our God-given right to mount a rotary cannon to our vehicles, which we mostly still can do.
    The g’ddamned freedom hating Communists are everywhere!

    I don’t care that I don’t NEED a flamethrower and can’t use it for hunting!

      I want one that runs on bacon grease and work boots.

    If I had $900 I would buy one for weed control!

      I’d use one for igniting brushfire piles.

    When we were fun-loving children we’d take an aerosol can of RAID and hold a match under the spray…POOF! Instant mini-flammenwurfer…

      When I was a janitor after flunking out of university they gave me Bon Ami aerosol to use to clean the sinks.
      Spray that stuff in the sink and drop a match in.

    All you need is an aerosol spray can with a flammable hazard sign, a lighter and you can have your very own flame thrower.

    Probably not suitable for home protection, unless you’re willing to burn down your house.
