I saw this earlier and got a rush of excitement when I read the headline. Sounds like fun to me, if I can take down 3 doves in a group with a bolt action shotgun I think I might be pretty good at drone hunting too.
You echo my sentiments about drones exactly.
Weapons of war and nothing else, regardless of the excuses they will use to try to sell us on the idea.
The only thing I believe that would convince the public to accept them would be if one were to somehow thwart a major terrorist strike. They know it too so watch for some high-profile story soon about the "benefits" of drones in the skies over the US.
I should add this www.abovetopsecret.com...
