Can we learn from other hobbyists?

    Many of us have similar hobbies, and there was a recent uproar about registration of all model aircraft with the FAA when there had been no such thing previously. It was addressed in Federal Court of Appeals and they decided in favor of the hobbyists.

    Firearms or flying airplanes, while there are differences, is there something that we can learn here to help us keep our RKBA freedoms?

    Here is a link to the ruling: http://www.wolfenstock.com/TaylorvFAA/TaylorFAAOpinion.pdf

    Moderators: If this violates TOS due to hobby-crossing, please lock or delete. No such intent was meant. I just found this out and immediately thought there might be something that we could learn, or use to protect our RKBA freedom. If we need to enact something, perhaps this is the time to make it happen?

    Sorry, but this case won't to RKBA matters. The decision in the case is based on the language and history of § 336(a) of FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, Pub. L. No. 112–95, 126 Stat. 11. It really won't apply to anything outside the narrow context of the registration of model aircraft.

    So there's really nothing here for us.
