Number 1 misconception, a drone flying over you while your walking your dog cannot/will not fire on you, posse comitatus doesn't allow the use of the military against US civilians.
So the real problem we must deal with is the "Hearts of Man"
The potential for abuse to life and liberty is endless.
When they can do everything from see you using various types of camera/vision modes - IR, Night Vision to loosing Hellfire missiles and come in every size from dragonfly to Goodyear blimps and fly above visual range or at night these are platforms of death and control.
They want 30,000 of these over US airspace?
We'd be insane to allow anyone to hold a gun to our heads which is exactly what allowing this will be.
Ask any Pakistani what they think of drones.
You can't fight what you can't see.

It's a bit different, the military cannot use weapons against their own civilians.

Like I said earlier how's that any different from a police chopper flying over using FLIR?
