Drones.
drones, drones, drones. Dronsey-drone-drones.

Infrared, night vision, can look beyond property lines, can "peek" without search warrants.

Sure, they (the popo) can just use cameras, and night vision goggles now.

But drones add an element that creep me out a bit.







Does the use of drones violate search warrant rules?

Well, I Googled that and got a myriad of results.

Most involved the 4th Amendment.


The rule of law is one thing. But is the law always right? certainly not.


I will always err on the side of more freedoms, more privacy rather than less. So no drones for me, thank you.

Just curious to see what the learned minds of ATS have to say.

It's another escapee from Pandora's Box.

I told you to put that damned key away, didn't I?

You did. I was distracted by college cheerleaders jumping on trampolines.


Sorry.

Evil diabolical attempt to take away all of our freedoms. But what are you going to do (you in general not you you)? Probably a bad idea to just start blowing them out of the sky with a shotgun.

Americans are giving away their freedoms on almost a daily basis under the guise of safety without a thought. It seems to be the natural order of things. Only an outright revolt will undo what has been done over the past 16 years and that won't happen.

One thing I've found, once a law is in place it's stays. There will be variances of it over time, but it almost never goes away.

I've been watching with interest this law in Oklahoma where you can't drive in the left lane unless you are passing on a highway. People are praising the law. Why anyone praises any new law is beyond me. The less government involvement in my life the better as far as I'm concerned.

Kind of went off on a rant there... TLDR: Evil diabolical attempt to take away all of our freedoms.

I'd use a stage 4 industrial laser.

Not only do I think it's bad but I also can't stand anyone flying those annoying things around, fly it your own property and I'm cool with that but fly it over my space and it's going down.

Or you could train your own drone to make sure other drones do not get close to you....oh and pop that laser on it also

Since we know the purpose of your life is to serve as a warning to others, the fact that you are "often left unsupervised" has been troubling to quite a few of us. Drones help us sleep more easily at night. Drones are simply machines to watch over you with loving grace.

I am fine with using them on search and rescue or recovery missions, but i'm not ok with mounting flamethrowers and grenade launchers on them.

I'd reach for the Benelli M2. I'd say size 4 or 5 shot should do the trick.

Illegal to shoot those things down though. Of course, if you're a criminal, who cares about laws?

I think a nice bolo would do fine.

Just get one of these and capture that drone.
The Drone Gun! That'll show those dirty corrupt police who don't respect the bill of rights and the constitution!

have to use multi ordnance. Short range I would say magnum birdshot would be pretty effective and minimize collateral damage. Long range..... thats a tough shot to make with something like a 308 etc. Kind of like hitting a hawk flying overhead at long range. Not even sure most snipers could make that hit.

SCotUS says.

If it's in public. It's not a privacy violation.

If they are flying the drone into your home. Then yes.

If they are out on the street looking in. Then no.

There is no privacy in public.

Maybe instead of offense we should use defence like ways for us to avoid the drones (cos lets face it one day they will be weaponised and they will hunt us down like dogs).






Stealthware baby!.

That device is illegal to use in the USA.

FCC does not allow you to use jammers.



Federal law prohibits the operation, marketing, or sale of any type of jamming equipment, including devices that interfere with cellular and Personal Communication Services (PCS), police radar, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and wireless networking services (Wi-Fi).

With the tech today, walls, shades, drapes, buildings are no longer barriers to provide privacy.

Does privacy even exist any more?
