    as the article states, even recreational drones are barred from flying over 400 ft high and within 5 miles of an airport. since these rules are already being broken and apparently unenforceable, then why create more rules that also won’t be enforced?

      What is to keep some crazy person or a Terrorist from rigging up a drone to fly into the path of an airliner? There have already been near misses on the news. I believe that C-4 is not heavy and is easily transported and could bring an airliner down and if it is on final approach to a busy airport, could endanger other planes on the ground.
