Senator Charles Schumer is calling for tighter federal regulations on drones.
Schumer says he wants the Federal Aviation Administration and the Commerce Department to put several regulations into effect by the end of the year.
He says small remote controlled aircraft have become hazardous in New York after a court decision to limit the federal government's ability to regulate them.
The senator says private drones have benefits, but sometimes interfere with other aircraft and can be used to spy on people or deliver illegal drugs.
Schumer says the FAA should consider several rules including a ban on drone usage by private investigators.
Where would we be without Chuckie Cheese Schumer?
Imagine a unit as small as a horsefly that can hover quietly in a room and record audio and video in HD.
Things like that make congress critters blanch...
Guns ok for gummint, not for you.
Drones ok for gummint, not for you.
What he’s really saying is that dronemakers and business that plan on using them haven’t donated enough to the Democrats to be left alone.
‘If it moves, regulate it.’ Demokrats
Ironic, since Schumer has a tendency to drone on and on.
OK, Chuckie, pass your stupid law that has not a prayer of being enforced unless they revive the f&^%ing Gestapo.
Gov agents in hobby stores arresting kids buying drones - coming to a neighborhood near you.
Nice video of Palo Duro.
Schmucky Chucky is mostly concerned about the privately owned suicide drone that could be targeting HIM!
When drones are outlawed, only outlaws will have drones.
