Montana congressional candidate Matt Rosendale swears he doesnt have a problem with drones.
I actually consider myself to be very supportive of technology, Rosendale told Yahoo News in an interview on Tuesday.
Still, the question had to be asked after Rosendale on Monday released a new campaign ad in which he used a hunting rifle to shoot down a drone.
The ad opens with an overhead camera angle, with the drone menacingly hovering over the state senator.
Im Matt Rosendale and this is how I'd look from a government drone, the candidate says as hes framed dead to rights in a digital set of crosshairs.
And this is what I think about it, Rosendale says as the camera cuts to him cocking and firing a rifle. The camera switches back to the drone pilots point of view, with text reading SIGNAL LOST, after the simulated gunshot impact shatters the drones lens.

Montana is a big place but could use some Drone Hunting Licenses like those guys in Colo. tried to set up.
Apparently not enough Californians have moved out there yet....
So heartwarming to see people like this.
A true American.
Yeah. Drones make for great skeet shooting. If they put guns on them we’ll need to come up EMP guns to fry their electronics first though...: )
> think “enhanced” maser; propagate/aim the
beam right @ the beast/gnat (ZOT! :) or just created
alot of high tetrawave interference!
Needs to be developed to deal with them once they go weaponized in your area which they will. We need to stop paying DC so much that they can create technology like this to be used against citizenry. That and automated traffic ticketing devices like red light and speeding cameras that are used to extort even more from us.
Only if you can hit a clay pigeon from a mile away.

I’m sure they’ll come in a little closer than that especially if they have mounted guns...: )
Kind of depends on what. It wouldn't even have to be within a mile to launch a missile, and the armament they carry is not the sort you need to be close to use.
I don’t think you could stop (hellfire missile) it with conventional non-military weapons but then again I’m no expert in that field. My specialty is intel...)
Not talking about the missile, but rather the drone launch platform. Stand off keeps it out of range for most defensive weaponry. The major vulnerability would be the operators if you could find them and if you could get to them. They'd probably be on a well guarded military base someplace 1000 or more miles from the target.

The operator might be, but they have to take off and land from somewhere within their fuel range.
You're now supposed to run screaming to your congressman demanding "Gun Safety" laws so that scary man with his scary rifle is put in jail.
The drone? They watch out for you and keep you safe from the world's maniacs. Embrace them.

Just to make it clear to NSA, this discussion is just 2 armchair quarterbacks discussing how we would “defend” ourselves if your “buddies” were trying o kill us without justifiable reason,,,: )
That’s a reach for my old Humpback...
Don’t despair, drones are dirt cheap and getting cheaper. Soon enough we can build and program counter drones for 5 bucks apiece. It will be a big game!
A reach for just about anything available to the peasants. I guess that's why they want to keep restricting what we can have.
