Apart from the Geneva Convention's ban on mustard gas, i suppose all sides in the war never seriously contemplated using it because every soldier and civilian carried a gas mask, so it'd have been a waste of time anyway.
However nowadays there are different kinds of gases around that kill if they simply come into contact with human skin in which case a gas mask wouldn't help, you'd need to wear a fullscale NBC suit, the military have them and would be ok, but ordinary civilians wouldn't have a chance.
