The Boring Company is one of the companies owned by Elon Musk. Its main activity is the manufacture of tunneling equipment for the construction of a tunnel near Los Angeles for the Hyperloop system. Recently, however, she has expanded her "career guidance", taking up the production and sale of ... "the safest flamethrowers in the world."
To become the owner of a premium "fire-breathing" weapon, you will have to shell out $ 500. The company put up 20, 000 items for sale. In this regard, the question is quite reasonable: What about the legality of this commercial action? Elon Musk is a law-abiding person. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Control, which regulates the sale of such goods, allows the sale of flamethrowers with flames shorter than 3 meters.
What, after all, did the flamethrowers appeal to the owner of Space X, Tesla, the initiator of the Hyperloop projects and the expedition to Mars? The fact is that Elon Musk promised to start selling flamethrowers in December, provided that 50, 000 caps with the logo of The Boring Company can be sold.
The story with flame throwers (and in the future, perhaps, with other products) is quite consistent with the motto of the world famous entrepreneur: "If it's good, do it."
