I would expect that it's classified as some sort of "Experimental" vehicle at this point, for which the usual rules do not apply. So I doubt the FAA has much to do with it either.
No, TFS has it correct. It's classified as "Commercial Spaceflight," and the Federal Government deliberately moved jurisdiction from NASA to the FAA.
Which has then conspired to de-legitimize the celebration of its own independence. I have close to zero respect for anti-fireworks laws. Go ahead and do it, but be responsible, or be held liable. What the hell is wrong with that?
What's wrong with that is that it's a little hard to track down the individual who lit the fireworks AFTER a wildfire has devastated the region. You do understand that fire prevention is the primary reason for these laws, right? (There may be rural areas where the noise frightens livestock, and that would be a legitimate reason for prohibiting their use as well).

The way to do it that would have been legal would have been to petition parliament like the Scottish just did, you can't just decide you don't like the way your country is run so you'll make you're own....if that was a thing, I'd have my own already.
Um, remember that phrase "taxation without representation" that got thrown around back then? Parliament did not recognize the colonies' right to petition because there was no colonial representative member. The colonists then did what they could--petitioned the king directly.
I guess that didn't help either.
The flag only represented treason when the South lost. Up until then it represented freedom from the oppressive North, a North that wouldn't let them govern themselves how they saw fit.
I can't believe we're still dealing with this strawman. I also can't believe you don't see the irony in your own statement. The people of the south wanted "freedom" to deny freedom to others, and you're OK with that?
When some folks finally got enlightened enough to realize that the ownership of human beings is just plain WRONG, a majority of the citizens of the US (which is how our representative democracy works) convinced their legislators and President that "how they saw fit" should be outlawed. They way we effect change in this country is through legislation. If an Army base were to be attacked today for the reasons that Fort Sumter was shelled, we'd call it terrorism. So, yes, the flag was treasonous on the day it was created, and continues to be so because of the "ideals" it represents.
The southern states only considered this "oppressive" because an end to slavery meant lower profits for slave-owners. This is clearly outlined in their secession statements.
