“Just keep drones from operating on American soil. NEVER should We the People Allow it. Even for a moment.
“This is a horrible danger to our freedom and privacy
and one which the fascist Obama regime intends to use against its political opponents.”
IMO, this is a lot like the gun control argument. “Drones don’t kill people. People kill people.”
As with guns, drones can be extremely beneficial in the right hands. Think of finding a lost child using a thermal imaging-equipped drone on a cold winter night.
RC and GPS controlled hobby drone enthusiasts are always getting upset when drone-control legislation is discussed intended to shut down their “pursuit of happiness” through piloting drones.
The fact is that drones, like semi-automatic weapons, are already here and getting thicker on the landscape by the day in the hands of both the government and civilians...including terrorists.
Who will commit the first fatal drone strike in the US? Will it be the federal/state/local government, gangsters, terrorists or a jealous lover?
Public awareness and education as to what activities with drones are suspicious and might indicate that the person operating the drone could be a domestic enemy. Investment needs to be made into drone countermeasure can deployed to detect and defeat impending drone attacks on our military and civilians. (see tag, for example)
My bet on first drone strike to kill Americans will be US border agents closing in on a high value cartel member.
And it won’t be accidental, it will be to protect the cartel members and Holder’s a$$.
Well you may say so, but one thing you can do to put a little more context on things is to examine the discrete data base aquired by the feds in the last Census.
We have what will go down in histroy as the Vengeful President, a horrible institution to unleash in America.
Dogs are better than drones, they pant hard and lick your ear, are you adverse to that? LOL.
