Default Protecting airspace from unwanted remote vehicles

How can public safety officials (FAA, NTSB, FBI, Local Law Enforcement) keep remote aircraft away from areas they shouldn’t be flying? I think there should be proactive solutions, not just laws. EMP’s, radar / radio jamming? In the future, someone may program many “drones” using GPS coordinates to hover over commercial aircraft runways and cause havoc. Have a look:

Much discussed issue. Safety of the airways from ground to beyond what it matters is the domain of the FAA. They are in the process of writing (re-writing) the rules to blend un-manned aircraft into the 'system.' The issue is with commercial and military operations, NOT HOBBY operations. We have the AMA watching out for us to keep it that way. Get into security or privacy issues and FAA is out of it, while DHS/FBI/local laws come into play. We expect AMA to watch out for us in these areas too.

With the advancement of technology, and the ever presence of ingenuity among idiots with a video camera and a yearn for YouTube fame there is no telling where this will take us over the next 5 years. Scary.
