There are no federal laws or regulations on the books that apply to flamethrowers, which pose a public safety threat. The possession or transfer of a flamethrower should be a federal crime punishable by fines and imprisonment to keep people safe.
Flamethrowers aren’t being used to commit crimes, and even if they were there are other laws like murder, manslaughter, or arson that could be used to try the accused. This is a solution in search of a problem, not everything needs to be criminalized.
