It was indeed a disgrace Steve. I expect they're setting up the protective technology as we speak. But it's long overdue.
And re-opening Gatwick doesn't mean all flights are instantly available. Most of the aircraft are parked at other airports having been diverted. It will probably be several days before normal service is resumed.
I would be very uneasy even just sitting in a park if a blooming drone was hovering. The clot could lose control and it might descend on my head, or onto a baby in a pram. Or go straight through the windscreen of a car. It could zoom into someone's face and blind them. It could terrify a herd of dairy cows or horses.
No. Ban them entirely.
