That's a negatory, Agent Rosenbaum.
FAA has decided to clamp down on drones.
Interesting parallel, illustrating the NRA point that it's not the tool but the user.
As a technology, drones are 100 YEARS OLD. The gov't experimented with remote control planes in WW1, and radio-controlled miniature planes have been a widespread hobby ever since. Regulation wasn't needed because the RC hobbyists were squares.
Now that drones have been adopted by Randian
fuckheads who are interfering with all sorts of normal activities, regulation is needed.

Parallel: Ham radio vs CB.
Hams also began formally in 1914. They have always operated with very light and cooperative regulation by FCC, because hams are squares.
They work hard to maintain a culture of civilized respect for the property of non-hams.
The CB band is right next to the 10-meter ham band, and CB was officially supposed to stay within a 5-watt power limit, just like Novice hams. Exactly the same technology, and for many years a quiet lightly regulated backwater.
When CB became coooooool in the '70s, the Randians took over. Power limits disappeared, and the usual limitations on splatter and interference also disappeared. You can't watch TV? Your garage door is zooming up and down all day? Your pacemaker is running at 2300 bpm? Tough shit, LOSER TAKER MOOCHER NEGATIVE EXTERNALITY. I AM GOD. I WIN.
Because Randians are evil, the law had to get hardass.
