You are presuming an enforcement that's not only insane, but impossible.
So you are in favor of passing new rules that you consider to be impossible to enforce? Why do you support that? Please be specific.
Your argument is that we should wait for a tragedy to make rules to prevent a tragedy.
No, my argument is that telling a 13 year old girl that she has to have her name in a public-facing federal database in order to fly a 9-ounce pink plastic RC copter from a mall kiosk, or face a $20,000 fine will do exactly NOTHING to prevent a bad guy from doing all of the horrible murderous things that we're seeing done with RC toys. Oh, right - there are literally millions of them in the hands of people, with untold millions of flight hours on them, and we're not actually seeing any of that. But you're pretty sure that someone looking to do harm will step up and register their name with the feds, and then write their identifying information on the RC airplane they're going to use to deliberately hurt people? Are you really thinking this through?
The FAA is banned from regulating model aircraft if I recall.
Which is why the Obama administration just instituted their new RC aircraft owner registration system (you have to sign up by the 19th of this month, or face up to $20,000 in fines
Hopefully you're not surprised that an administration that has been found repeatedly by federal courts to have overstepped separation of powers by issuing unconstitutional executive orders would be trying to once again work around the law?
Doesn't matter. Most people who fly RC planes for fun can't afford to fight the administration in court or risk that $20,000 fine. There are a couple of groups trying to take the matter to court, but that will drag out years. In the meantime, we have to play along with the illegal action by the administration.
Are there really that many drones kicking around that they are this much of an issue?
The rule (and its change) wasn't about "drones" - it was about any and all RC-controlled flying things. Balsa-wood models that grandpa has been flying around in circles in his back field for 40 years, for example. Hundreds of thousands of people have been flying RC aircraft for many decades. And no, it's never been an issue and still isn't. The FAA's random rule-generating system has nothing to do with reality.
Other than that, they have no reason to exist and should be shot down, no mater where they are.
So you're thinking that these machines, which people have been flying for decades - an activity enjoyed by millions of people over multiple generations, should all be shot down? Really?
If I find your car annoying or your mobile phone to be an intrusive image-capturing device, can I shoot at them? No? Why not?
So go to the NSA. Isn't that why they are tracking calls, messages and all that?
Meta data about who called who when doesn't contain the content of text messages, the photos or other files stored on the phone, etc.
They know he is a killer -- so why do they need his phone?
Really? You're that lacking in imagination, or that unfamiliar with the long history of Islamist murderers being in touch with each other and specific consulting figureheads, financiers, teachers, parts suppliers, etc?
"Only democrats spend tons of money" says area man with no grip on reality.
No, his point was that on things like this, Democrats only spend money (as opposed to actually getting things done right). The money gets spent, but the supposed purpose for which money is being taxed or borrowed and then spread around on the chartering and running of panels, focus groups, advisory boards, and programs as being mentioned in the OP
