And as of next week, I will need to register my dinky little drone with the federal government. Otherwise, I could potentially face civil and criminal penalties of up to $250,000 and three years in prison.
Meanwhile, if I decided to relocate to the nearby state of New Hampshire, I’d be able to purchase and own an assault rifle with a high-capacity magazine—no registration or license required. That’s because I live in the United States, a country that will soon have a national registry for toy helicopters, but not for deadly machines used to commit horrifying mass-murder on a near-daily basis.
Not the last time you will read this argument. Though I have to question any strategy that depends on linking guns and drones.
