And wait 5-10 minutes waiting for them to get there.
Nothing worse than waking up in the drunk tank with a bullet wound in the chest.
I think being dead would qualify as "worse".
Birds have an instinct for survival and will move away from the helicopter.
Somebody flying a drone and looking through the camera at the fire/police chase/topless neighbor/whatever, will probably not be paying attention to the airspace around them.
Heck, if you go out to the flying field, people crash into each other all the time, and that is when they are paying attention!
If I recall, this goes all the way back to their first European contact, where guns were outlawed in order to preserve the advantage the feudal lords and their swordsmen had over the people.
Moore's law applied to transistor count and the atomic limit only applies if you limit yourself to 2 dimensional chips.
I am Data Jesus and I have come to intelligently design a new kingdom by selecting leadership comprised of doomsday preppers, plumbers, and an Alaskan volleyball player.
Most of these studies focus on implementing a semi-automatic. Here the problem is going to be the higher case pressures of modern ammunition. If they made a 3D gun to an older spec (e.g. 45 Colt revolver cartridge instead of 45 ACP) they would probably have better results.

We're the Russian branch of the Make The NSA Look Bad Front!
Then teach them how to write or modify their own games or bake their own pizza. Use a game engine and have them mess around with the physics model. Have them learn some game design/simulation concepts. Learn the chemistry of baking and maybe some small business skills. Put them in the kitchen and see if they can cook better food than the staff.
There is plenty of opportunity to teach "lazy gamers". Almost all of them want to change something about their favorite game, but our system just tells them to recite the Pythagorean Theorem. No wonder they want to drop out and play video games.
They don't pay taxes where the costs are incurred either. The company buying the ads may also be playing the same game.
