It will become worse... writing on the wall already.

QUOTES FROM ABOVE SOURCE:

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said the drone registration requirement is a positive step for accountability but more needs to be done. Congress should push forward legislation that empowers FAA to hold those who threaten air safety accountable, said Blumenthal in an emailed statement.

Such authority could include "clear, enforceable operational restrictions that will keep these drones away from airports, manned aircraft, public areas and critical infrastructure," he said.

"We must also require the installation of fail-safe technology in the manufacturing process, so it's impossible for owners to misuse these powerful devices," said Blumenthal in the statement.

They have already got the first step. This has happened all to many times when people give up their freedoms for " the sake of safety"

So how does one interpret what a public area is?

Yes, and look at how many posts with people saying registering is no big deal and if you aren't doing anything wrong there's nothing to fear.

I think neighborhoods, center-of-town/commercial/shopping areas would be on that list.. I fear parks / fields / schools would be placed on there (which is where I tend to do most/all of my flying)

All the public parks anywhere near where I live have already banned "drone" flying.
