I would be all for an education effort with funding commensurate with the size of the problem (in this case a few million dollars worth). But is it really a "clusterfuck" at this point? How many people have been harmed by a privately operated drone so far, a few hundred at most? You're probably about as likely to get struck by lightning as get hurt by a drone. What the FAA, and you, are doing is over-reacting to a potential problem without thinking it through (or more realistically, actively using it as an opportunity to make money and gain more power).
And I bring up the pointed stick argument because it is analogous to your argument. You're arguing that drones should be further regulated without establishing a valid justification why the specific regulation is needed. If there weren't already laws against flying things around in controlled airspace or spying on neighbors, I'd probably be on board with creating those. Considering that those laws already exist, I'm questioning if the added imposition on our personal privacy, that registration amounts to, is warranted given that there have only been a few incidents and the drone operators weren't prohibitively difficult to find.
I say there's no need to panic yet. If the current enforcement efforts aren't doing the job, we should focus on improving those. Then, if the problem continues to escalate, there may come a point where new measures should be considered to address them (training requirements, licensing, registration, etc.), but until we exhaust the available options within the current laws, I see no reason to add new ones.
