You knew this was coming: “Drone users should be regulated and registered in the same way as firearms certificates.”
This is in the U.K.:
“A drone in the wrong hands could be just as lethal as a gun.
“They are unregulated and can easily be bought by anyone online for under £30. Even the cheapest has a range of 150 metres and can fly for half an hour.
“Drone users should be regulated and registered in the same way as firearms certificates.”
Note – there’s a lot of oddities in this story and some things – like 30 pound quadcopters flying for half an hour – that are not true.
The logic is kind of weird. In the U.S., firearms killed over 30,000 people in 2017 alone. Model aircraft? To the best of our knowledge, no one in the nearly century has been killed by model aircraft.
