I don't think flammability is the issue California has with some 
products; it's the volatile, highly toxic/carcinogenic solvents used in 
many of them.  I can go a couple blocks down the street and buy as much 
of a highly flammable--in fact, explosive--compound called 'gasoline' 
and put it in my vehicles with no (unreasonable) restrictions.

Shame on California for trying to limit/reduce the amount of highly 
toxic/carcinogenic chemicals in the air we all have to breathe. Shame 
shame shame.
