Yea it's crazy... was driving home today from vacation and scanning radio and got some local news reports in a small town and heard this report.... so when I got home I wanted to find it - and here it is. The only thing different is the radio report I heard said the US Congress is looking into this report..... just the facts...

Hey if militants and rebels are using them to kill, then they should be banned, but only in that region. I'm sure there will be some dumbass american politician (probably rep.) come up with the idea of doing the same in america.

In a related story, clothing has also been banned as it can be used to conceal weapons or explosives (not really...but it makes about as much sense)

The US ARMY has remote control planes that could go 100s of miles and take out targets and they would not know what hit them they call it the silent killer.

I don't think it would happen here, besides I don't spend a grand into a car to just blow it up.

Life is precious. Some idiots just don't see that. I guess it is because thier ass is miserable and have no one.

I heard they are going to ban knives, screwdrivers or any sharp object because if they are on the wrong hand, it will consider terorist's cheapest weapon................

What will that end....?

They are going through an ongoing civil war. So the climate is alot different there. Plus, they are just banning new imports, the article says the currect stock of rc products are ok to sell.

Water has now been banned.

Not only can you drown someone with it, you can use it to make Hydrogen.
