I'm sure that as a rule drones will fly higher than most long guns in the arsenals of the US civilian population can reach. So in some ways, the possibility of a bullet taking one down is slim to none.
Don't forget, the whole premise of that thing being up there is to spy on you. You think you can hide as you shoot it down? Watch some of the infrared targeting done in warfare to get an idea of how, when the hunter becomes the hunted, the newly hunted (drone) fires back or relays back to HQ images and exact coordinates'.


You know how it goes though. There are people who would set themselves up to lose their lives over a stupid political statement only they ever known even happened. The fact that pot shots will cost them 10-20 years of their lives and out of their wife and/or children's lives won't stop some truly ignorant morons from shooting at an aircraft.

I just can't get over..even a little bit...HOW ignorant one has to be to fire into the air at something with almost 0 odds of hitting .....an end to productive life if it IS hit.... and a 100% chance the bullet IS coming down somewhere with the potential to do damage there.

Perhaps 10-20 isn't enough...Perhaps Life Without Parole is more appropriate for that complete reckless disregard for other human life and general safety.

How about...pool funds and ideas with your neighbors...and put up your own hunter killer drones....take em down er attack em and make a video game out of it....build some home drones, and let the kids have their way...no weapons of course...we wouldn't want to do that...but...for a couple hundred bucks (much less than a good rifle the gov is gonna take from you when you try this anyways) you could put a camera on a R/C plane and camakazi these bozo's

at least we'd be giving our fine US Drone pilots some good evasive maneuver training

Its like were helping or something

X ?

It would take a helluva shot to bring one down.If you shoot one down you should be given a patch to sew on your jacket. Of course you will be in prison but hey. You'll have some cool patches.

Firstly I'd like to see someone try and shoot something that is thousands of feet in the air .. Secondly .. So you've shot it, it starts to fall out the sky .. Wreckage lands on a school kills people. I bet you won't be celebrating your downed drone then

Stupid idea anyway

Quadcopters of all sizes are going to be under a lot of christmas trees this year.

Do you really want a society that *advocates* shooting of childrens toys?

(because of course, from the ground there may be no way of knowing if the quadcopter is operated by a police department, or just 16 year old Billy from down the road.)

Good point. Never considered the wreckage. Lawsuit city.

What is going on with some states and the war on drones is the pre amble to the real drones wars that will be hitting us by 2015, when the bill that is been drafted in congress about the rights to drones is passed.

People needs to wake up and become aware, bullets are not the only things that could be falling from the skie and hitting people very soon when hundred of thousands of drone use by military and private sector starts to inundate our skies.

Many states are already getting reading for their own laws regarding domestic drone regulations in individual states.


States Push to Regulate Domestic Drones as Industry Pushes Back The Texas law is just one of many pieces of legislation placing restrictions on the use of domestic drones to be introduced in 43 states this year, passing in eight.

Many of these state-level bills seek to require search warrants for surveillance drones used by local police departments, and at least six states have required warrants. In 2013, Virginia put in place a two-year moratorium on the use of drones by law enforcement to develop more stringent guidelines.

Legislation restricting civilian drone use has passed in states such as Florida, Tennessee, Idaho, Montana and Oregon, but other states such as North Dakota have tried to pass laws that would ban weapons from domestic drones and have failed.

But the industry is pushing back against privacy restrictions and regulations on civilian drones, saying the restrictions will hinder job creation. In Maine, Gov. Paul LePage backed up the claim by vetoing a bill that would have required police to obtain a warrant before deploying a drone, citing concerns it would kill new aerospace jobs.


truth-out.org...

Sadly when it comes to the drone technology is going to be open to private public as a mean to increase profits by sales, this means that if you can afford to pay to for one you will own one, so just thing about how many drones could be polluting our skies very soon

Drones are also very vulnerable to hacking and we all know what that means.

What about the possible trouble these drones could have on passenger flighrs? I'm no expert on drones. What's their max speed and how high can they go? Also what about crashing into cell towers?

The kiddy quadcopters that are going for $400 to $600 are not going to be the targets. It will be big boys like this:



These machines are $2000.00 and above and have expensive parts.

If they shoot one of these down, it is a payday.

On the other hand, if they shoot down one that has a US Homeland Security badge, they better find another country to hide in. An incident or two like this, and goodbye marijuana laws, and hello rath of Federal harassment for anything that state does in the future. Drone Hunting License... what a crock of crap.
