I just posted on FR the other day my concern that the first US citizen casualty on US soil from a drone attack would not be from law enforcement but from terrorists, criminals, or jealous lovers!
Hobbyist drones vs. jackboot drones!
Don’t worry about your fellow citizens, worry about your government.
As a major league tinkerer, part of me says, ‘cool idea’. Then another side of me says, ‘very cool idea’.
Ping. You guys need to see this.
Nothing unexpected. Just more obvious every day where things are headed.
Is a hobbyist drone just a radio-controlled airplane? Like an AR-15 is now a combat weapon?
A psychopath with a heavy stamp collectors book can kill... So can the gardener with his rake and hoe... We need to get serious about all of this - citizens should be confined to their rooms until Mommy - oops - I mean the State - tells them it's safe to sit in the living room...
Where is the video”
I was just discussing with someone you can now buy RC drones off the shelf that look like dragonfly’s.
You can buy a fully functional drone w camera (routed to your smart phone) at any Verizon store.
I have the right to fly a drone. I have the right to bear arms. What’s the problem?
Just like with guns, I’d rather that citizens be allowed to have any armed drones that the government can possess, than ban them. I trust my neighbors more than I trust the government, even if I can’t trust either 100%.
I predict that there will be a video or two in the next few months from a do-it-yourself drone that flies out over area 51, avoids detection, and catches a glimpse of a flying saucer in a hangar with an alien being beside it. It will be a fake; disinformation generated by the military.
Add a pound of plastique and there’s your guided missile on the cheap.
Time to pick up a goose gun and move out to the boondocks...
Where do people think the military get’s their ideas from? Pull it out of their asses? Ban one type of weapon, and ingenuity will quickly fill the vacuum.
Years ago I had a plan to put one of those BB guns that dumps a hole can of BBs on a remote control plane...never wasted the money.
Just look out for the telephone wires.....
