Many cities throughout the country are being given lots of money by hotel chains to put a stop to this practice.  The cities use other excuses when they do it, but everybody knows why they do it.

Tyra Hemans, 19, a senior, told CNN she supports parts of the new policy, such as the ID requirement. But she believes other security measures, such as forcing students to carry clear backpacks, don't adequately address the real problem with school safety, which she says is lax gun laws.

I voted "yes, of course". I suppose there would have to be some regulation, but largely limited to those that we place on any structure meant for human habitation.

No because this results in things like that landlord who evicted his entire apartment building so he could just rent the rooms on AirBnB.

That's why I support a full 100% ban on AirBnB.

As a general rule yes.  However, there are a few high-density/limited transport metro areas where there is a need to ensure that renters aren't forced to become commuters.  So for places like San Francisco, Manhattan, Venice, etc., there is a need. In US terms, if you don't have to file a Schedule E with your 1040, then yeah you should be able to rent.  (Note that means you rent at most two weeks per year, but you don't have to pay income tax on it either.)

Yes, you should be able to AirBnB your house a certain number of days of the year. No, you should not be able to run a de facto hotel in a residential neighborhood.

There should be caveats in place requiring that you have adequate parking for AirBnB guests and aren't hogging all the street parking.

Generally yes, but there needs to be sufficient regulation to ensure health/safety and that homeowners are not running de facto hotels.
