    About as useful as gun control laws.

    Only the criminals will never bother to register.

      Jack, we have been receiving bulletins from carriers on exclusions for drone damage. I don’t think many Homeowners carriers will like paying for damage from some kid crashing into neighbors property or causing bodily injury.

      These can weigh up to, or more than 500 lbs, and you need no training to use one. They can be very dangerous, and the government should regulate their use, especially in large cities, where most people live.

        Fine, regulate the ones that weigh 500 pounds. Or even 50 pounds. But 0.55 pounds? Really?

          Dave,
          I would agree, on the surface, .55 pounds seems like overkill. Though, I’d like to understand better what happens to me when something weighing half a pound falls on my head after dropping 50 – 100 feet in the air.

            Planet, if you ever held one or watched one fly you’d understand that they wouldn’t fall like a rock, that the wings/blades, etc. would impede the fall from the sky. And that the light weight plastic which might hit you would easily break (if sufficient speed) before any serious injury to you. Same thing if a plane hit it. Small birds get sucked into jet engines all the time with no damage (other than to the bird) it’s only the 20 lbs. + birds which really cause the problems. Up to 2-3 lbs. shouldn’t be regulated.

          Hey Dave, did you see the story today on the latest drone incident? It seems our esteemed President taking his $4million tax payer paid vacation was leaving the golf course on Oahu after shooting a 101 and a drone buzzed the Presidential motorcade. The Secret Service got excited about that. Even though it was a small model, the idiot drone operator thought it was cute to do. What if it had been a determined Terrorist hiding in the bushes and flew a more sophisticated larger drone loaded with C-4, nails, ball bearings etc right into the limo? I know that car is armor plated, but there still could have been substantial damage and injuries. Better take those drones seriously fellas. They can be weapons with deadly consequences.

    I don’t necessarily mind this. If the drones were more like those remote control toy racecars or planes – the ones that only work within a very small radius, I’d say this was a massive overreach. But, considering the fact that some drones can go so much further and higher than a toy plane, and have the potential to be able to do much more than a simple toy car, it makes sense. It’s similar to having to register most moving vehicles – cars, boats, planes, etc.

      Does anyone believe that Terrorists have noted Drone use and plan to do something with them? I do and think they just might fit one of those larger drones with C-4, Ball Bearings, Nails and whatever else they can find to cause maximum damage. Kind of like a flying pipe bomb and they don’t have to be that close to the object of their destruction if it has cameras on it.

        you have to be close to your drone to fly it – most drones will “return home” if it’s more than 1 mile away from its user.

        let’s say your xenophobic alarmist concern is valid – wouldn’t it be helpful to know who registered the drone in the first place?

        if you are concerned about terrorist drones and advocate for no registration of drones, you just gave terrorists a ‘get off scott free’ from using drones as a weapon.

        maybe it’s a good idea to have a registry of drones so, like serial numbers on guns, if they’re used in a terrorist attack, we can try to figure out who was responsible, yes???

          Amen, confused! Also, I guess I don’t spend much of my day fearing what a terrorist is going to do to me. I’m more likely to die of cancer, be shot by a relative, or be involved in a car accident. Faux News really has its viewers in a fear frenzy, though. Must be getting closer to election time.

    With registration should there not be a requirement to show evidence of insurance? Some States have financial responsibility laws for aircraft – should this not be expanded to all States.It appears that the “horse is already out of the barn ” on this issue. Perhaps action will be taken when a drone actually “takes down” a 737 on final or on take off? – Mike

      I’m sure the criminals and terrorist will be the first in line to register them. Kinda like guns.

        Jack,
        You bring up a good point. Does anyone know if the Planned Parenthood terrorist registered his weapons? What about Wall Street? Do those criminals register their weapons? Speaking of, it was nice to see Pharma Bro go down the other day.

          Just because people break laws does not mean those laws should be repealed.

            Just because people violate Federal Law on Marijuana, that doesn’t mean that the laws should be repealed.
