Skip to comments.Colorado volunteers to fill its skies with domestic drones
Posted on 05/10/2013 9:14:20 PM PDT by cutty
Most of Colorados congressional delegation and Gov. John Hickenlooper have signed a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration asking the agency to turn the state into a testing ground for unmanned drones even while acknowledging that the public remains uneasy about how they might be used by both the government and private individuals.
Democratic Sen. Mark Udall is leading the charge
In a speech at the National Press Club Wednesday, Udall was careful not to use the word drone too heavily, opting instead for the industry-preferred unmanned aerial system, or UAS.

is Hicken Looper?
What the heck happened to Colorado ... didn’t this state us to be a bastion of conservatism?
"but officer, i was just following the vice president's advice."
Liberals from other states and illegals / dead people voting often.
Looks like the Governor wants another shooting sport for those that enjoy shooting.
Something’s seriously wrong with CO’s air and water. And the one world government center seems to be in Denver.

You’re right. This state is now sick in many ways.
I’m starting to get real sick of misuse of drones.
Searching for hikers in an avalanche is one thing.
Warrantless searches in investigations is quite another.
Perhaps this will add juice to the recall effort against Hickenlooper.
Wait, if I can have a drone I can follow lib politicians around and tweet their locations to ... people.
It might be fun to take a few photos of politicians and the MSM libs from a drone. Good wood is good to have.
Sounds like they might be policing unlicensed marajuana growers.
Didn’t the state just decide to tax sales?
Someone should be keepin’ an eye on ‘em 24/7. It’s not like they have any room to complain that it would be un-Constitutional. lol
An invasion by hoards of marauding Caliban from the west took that state down. There are still a lot of good people behind the lines there, but they’re in the minority.
Having lived/worked/studied there in the late 70s, I remember fondly what it used to be.
One example: my conservative political awakening happened out there (CU/Boulder) via the most beautiful young lady who wouldn't continue seeing me until I'd read Atlas Shrugged.
It was the 2x4 upside the head needed to clear out the 60s-70s libtard sludge.
I hope she found happiness and a fulfilling life .. she surely changed mine.
Bless you, Mary DeVore, wherever you are !
I was saving my money to replace my guns lost in a boating accident.
Now I have decided I want me one of those remote control drones.
I heard that you can get 3D printer plans for them online.
Four wealthy dooshes funded a lot of leftards to run for office starting about ten years ago.
Then you have an influx of hippy/yippie/skippy types that moved in from places like Kali.
Can’t leave out the fact that the state is now something like 8% hispanosocilaist.
Then, you’ve got the universities and the urban cancer known as Denver/Boulder/Ft. Collins. Cleanse that area ideologically and it’s not a bad place.
Looking toward Wyoming or Texas.
Colorado was invaded by limo liberals and hippies decades ago. In the early 60s (thanks in part to John Denver and his drivel), CO became the place to be for enviro nuts, rich liberals, and outdoorsy-health-nut yuppies. They have ruined the state.
Colorado is proof of the downside to California’s outbound migration. Any Southern State should be weary of taking in California refugees.
Colorado, my beloved adopted state is now the ultimate test ground for fascism.
When I saw the title I was hopelessly optimistic. Imagine if 10's of thousands of Coloradans went out and bought or made drones to fly around Colorado (outside of airspaces like airports). Those drones could fly anywhere (below 500 ft) and do anything. They could even block or intercept government-run drones and nobody would be charged since 10,000 people could have done it. The government drones would use known frequencies and encryption which would be very noticeable. Citizen drones could simply home in on those signals.
Colorado suffers a severe case of Boulder Dementia Syndrome.
It started with the commie faculty (forgive the redundancy) at the UC Boulder campus. Then the rest were infected.
Good news is that Boulder Dementia Syndrome(BDS) is cured by bankruptcy. When reality penetrates the bubble of delusion surrounding the BDS victim, acute cognitive dissonance, couples with material deprivation and hunger results in a cure.
The fascist liberals love this stuff when they control it but most dope smoking liberals hate the fascists. This is going to backfire. We have far more dope smoking liberals than fascist liberals.
Further Udall excerpt:
We need to integrate UASes into the American psyche in a way that isnt threatening or scary, he continued, noting that the word drone carries a stigma because most people associate them with Hellfire missiles and the headline-grabbing work our government is doing overseas.
Colorado is being used as the point of the spear on too many Obama initiatives.
No state offers to do such a thing as this without undue outside influence.
Every sportsman should make it their duty to knock out at least three drones.....every day.
I'm more concerned about cameras, as are most people.
The Hellfire missiles come later.
Isn’t Colorado where they fine people who want to collect their rainwater and use it to water their lawns?
Remember this, too, when hunting season arrives...and every other tourist season. Continue indulging in misinformation and feeding the B., or starve the B.
