Are we sure these machines weigh over 200 grams? If not, they ain't drones as far as the law is concerned.

why can’t people fly drones? There are millions of cctv cameras. They can short circuit and burn down buildings.

Seems a bit heavy handed blanket ban.

Incidents like this ruin it for responsible drone pilots. The public are a reactionary bunch, before you know it I won't be able to use my Chinese Flying House Brick over the local mums' outdoor yoga classes.

As soon as the public started flying drones a few years ago, some guy flew a drone onto a government building with radioactive material. Hence the ban. (most likely it was someone working for the gov that flew the drone to make the ban more palatable to the public)

How many 200 gram drones do you know of? My can of morning coffee weighs more than that.
