This ship has come and sailed, folks. Halfway to Portsmouth by now. The only solution is to nip it in the bud and start regulating. Anything over a certain weight ratio or something like that needs to be licensed and registered. That way you're not outlawing stuff that is purely for entertainment and not capable of carrying out an attack, but honestly...I don't even know enough about drones to even begin to fathom what they're currently capable of, let alone what they will be 5, 10 years in the future. This is something that needs to be brought to the forefront of discussion with the public before it gets out of hand.
