The expense of a CRAM can probably be justified. You're probably going to be spending more than the drone is worth shooting it down, but not multiple orders of magnitude more. On the plus side, you get the operation flexibility of the CRAM. If drone approaches are rare, costs can be swallowed.

Let's say that we modify the law so that distribution, or packing for distribution are not covered.

"[Overtime does not apply to] The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment of [the listed items]

Is that a gramatically correct sentence? The last comma in the list should be replaced with "and" or "or" for it to be valid English.

Yup. The Dam Busters is a 1955 movie dramatisation of the book. A pretty famous British film, repeated frequently on TV, with an iconic theme tune (The Dam Busters March).

Either I'm completely missing a joke, or am surprised you haven't heard of it. It was shown on TV pretty frequently in the C64 era.
