    Bingo. People see guns as a weapon. They are afraid of them. They want to see as few of them around as possible. They are going to keep making retarded laws that may or may not work because the general public doesn't care if they may or may not work as long as it places a burden on gun ownership regardless of its legality.

    I think the best thing that could happen to gun owners is to sue to make them a protected class like LGBT. Then we could not be discriminated against by the law.

    Do sportscars have an "ethical utility"?

    I guess we shouldn't have hobbies like cars, hunting, recreational target shooting, recreational flying, drones (oh no!), RC aircraft, etc...

    Mark my words, drones will be the great next frontier of danger. Hell, in my years of flying and being around flight schools I saw the dangers happening even when people's own lives were involved. Now that it's just a piece of hardware...

    And on that bombshell, I'm dropping the mic on this thread. I think we've gone around the tree more than a pack of puppies with full bladders.

    Because thousands, or eventually hundreds of thousands of drones are so much more dangerous than MILLIONS of birds... Come on. Canadian geese are weapons to aircraft.

    Nope. You're killing the planet, stop all of those dangerous things immediately and take up good hobbies like politics, ruining other people's fun, drinking, and rarely going beyond walking distance of home like a good lefty.

    FAA is requiring pilots licenses for drones., specially big ones.

    Amazon started drone delivers in the UK because their requirement are much more lax. Amazon predicts one hour delivery for certain products delivered by drone.

    Drone deliveries would be a huge hit for shipping companies so they will continue to lobby for increased legislation against drones in the US.

    Do you guys really want drones flying over your house all day everyday? I really don't and I own a drone.

    I tried reading the FAA rules and at this point I'm not even sure if I can legally fly my drone - I don't care enough at this point to suffer through more government paperwork.

    Yeah, let's have that kind of legislation for gun control.....
