Posted on 04/08/2014 6:28:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Attorney General Eric Holder admitted Tuesday that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was in the process of looking at the use of domestic drones.
Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, questioned Holder during a House Judiciary Committee hearing, asking the Attorney General if he believed if the Federal Aviation Administration or Congress should regulate of drone use.
Would you think that it would be better that Congress intervene and employ legislation safeguarding the Fourth Amendment, right of privacy basically on citizens or do you suggest as Attorney General that the FAA still control who gets a drone or not? Poe asked.
Holder did not specifically address Poes question but reveled some details of the use of drones in the Justice department....

Just a thin line away from having drones aid in “enforcement” by killing Americans - all without due process.
I’m sure if there’s another Waco-type event you’ll see the BATF with quite an armada of mil spec drones.

great, these assoles can’ t kill enough innocent people.
Both Bammy and H0lder ARE Drones.
Let's see...3 and 1/2 inch magnum number four turkey load or my new .410, with the rifled barrel and a three inch slug?
Or maybe my new Springfield in .30 caliber.
Hell, I might even invest in a Barrett for this.
In any event, it has to get close enough and if I know the ATF chicken-s^^ts, they'll stay well out of range whilst they spy and generally shred a few more of our Constitutional rights.
“if” - you misspelled “when”
How to Hack Other People’s Drones for Less Than $400
American’s to Holdyer Constitution away from me. Looking forward to some skeet shooting!
Bracelets drones...don’t fund it.
How about a few Hellfire missiles too, eh BATFEXYZQRSTUV?
We will use US drones on communists soon.
Here’s the thing: There’re tens if not hundreds of millions of us. Hellfire and other missiles do not grow on trees and are mucho expensive. Yes, they could kill several thousands of people with those in stock. Then what? Can’t put a railgun on a drone.
Should an Attorney General who is currently guilty of Contempt of Congress be given the power to order Obamadrones to fly under his command?
How long before they start launching Hellfire missiles at us?
There WILL be more Waco events. I am only surprised it hasn't happened yet, but it will happen. Also, some guy will decide he won't take anymore BS from the government, and have a falling down moment. I think that is exactly what the Feds are wishing for, their Reichstag fire.
Good point. Considering how he’s violated the law and is party to murder through Fast and Furious... Drones are fair game. Looks like I’ll be getting that remote controlled jet powered F16 up in the air and armed sooner than later. Wonder how good the stick jockies controlling the drones are at an old fashioned dog fight.
I wonder why someone doesn’t follow him around and record every moment of his life when he’s not behind closed doors.
Anti-drone drones coming. Only a matter of time.
