The thing is the only ability to jam wireless signals I am aware of emit a strong noise-type signal that makes picking up any real signals impossible. It's like screaming loudly in a room to interrupt another conversation. Imagine a plane doing this while flying over a bunch of homes, or coming in for a landing.

Ultimately I think that this is a matter of a new tech that just needs to be regulated and clamped down on, as it's free use is causing problems that are larger than the benefits of the freedom of buying and using drones without regulation, so drones will need to be.
