A goose hitting the windscreen at 200mph will equally make a loud bang, if not louder.

Maybe, but a goose is wildlife, you cannot just legislate wildlife away.

Here, we are talking spoiled and thick brats operating drones in areas they should not. I have absolutely 0 empathy for these. The takeoff and landing phases are the busiest moments in the cockpit, you really do not want some punks distracting pilots landing or taking off, ever. I do not care if they can damage the aircraft or not, that is entirely besides the point, they distract pilots at critical moments and that is not acceptable.

I would go with "confiscation of equipment" and fine. If they are caught again, slammer. This is crazy and has to stop.
