FAA Finally Admits Names And Home Addresses In Drone Registry Will Be Publicly Available
The FAA finally confirmed this afternoon that model aircraft registrants’ names and home addresses will be public. In an email message, the FAA stated: “Until the drone registry system is modified, the FAA will not release names and address. When the drone registry system is modified to permit public searches of registration numbers, names and addresses will be revealed through those searches.”
“Wait, what’s that got to do with RKBA, or Jews, or whatever?” I pretend to hear you mutter.
Let’s take it a step at a time. The Federal Aviation Administration, in response to a few incidents involving RC drones near aircraft — none of which caused deaths, injuries, nor even an aircraft crash — issued a new, retroactive rule requiring a national registration database of nearly all drone owners.

Lacking new legislation to authorize this, the FAA simply, and arbitrarily, redefined toys to be aircraft requiring registration. [ding ding]
Despite telling prospectively compliant drone owners that their personal data (name, address) would be kept private, in fact, they plan a publicly searchable database. [ding ding ding]
“So what?” you might wonder. Hopefully not though, since I’d expect regular TZP visitors to be ahead of me here.
President Barrycade has stated his intent to issue executive orders to implement gun control, since he lacks legislation to do so.
Reportedly, one element of this will be to — again, lacking new enabling legislation — simply redefine occasional sellers as “dealers”. Bound books, 4473s, NICS checks, ATF inspections, and all. [ding]
Hey, it worked for the FAA, and they don’t even have an executive order. [ding ding]
The ATF already has their searchable FFL database. [ding ding ding]
Since Obama and other blood-dancers have stated publicly that they wish to crack down on private sales, it seems safe to assume this will be in one EO or another. But what if he emulates the FAA a little more closely?
Or how a shoe string became an NFA machine gun.
There is precedent for registering undesirables.
Fortunately, there’s an easy answer to any such moves.
Backing up those brave words might be a little harder, but let me leave you with two quotes.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family?”

The sheer immorality of victim disarmament aside, one would hope every government thug out there would stop to consider all the possible ramifications of kicking in several million doors because the occupants are well armed.

When the law is twisted by arbitrary, unilateral redefinitions, there is no law to break.
