Do you really want a bunch of numb nuts doing mag dumps into the air with their AR's because they don't own a shotgun.
Certain laws actually do make sense.
what are you talking about? Who shot at one with an AR-15? Why are you making up some lame scenario that never happened?
|It's not you,|
Meh, way out in the middle of nowhere where this supposedly is, I wouldn’t mind.
Who mentioned mag dumps anyways?
Ah there's that wonderful eons old human reaction.. "I don't know what that is, kill it!"
Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.
A father shot a drone down with a shotgun. He then got sued by the drone owner.
Seems the father’s 16 year old daughter was sunbathing by their pool.
According the dad the drone was over his property, 10 feet off the ground and looking under the canopy of his neighbor.
The police arrested the father for firing a gun inside city limits. He was then sued by the drone’s owner for damage to the drone.
The “owners claimed they were getting pictures of a friend’s house.
“We even went higher, nor did we hover over their house to look in. And for sure didn’t descend down to no 10 feet, or look under someone’s canopy, or at somebody’s daughter,” said David Boggs, the owner of the drone.
Boggs says the drone was 272 feet in the air when it was shot down”
What’s the range of a shotgun fired at a high angle?
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms.

If someone just starts dropping them from the sky like pigeons, the owner(s) will come forth pronto.
I hope someone in Colorado starts picking them off like the flies they are.

Here's a story like what I had read about:
The drones are programmed, but also "learn" the position of the other drones in the flock, and reposition as necessary.

You want to know the quickest way to determine if an Active Directory group or report is in use and who the owner is? Shut it down.
I agree, plug a few of these with some heavy shot and me thinks all will become clear quickly when whomever owns these or there proxy says to stop breaking our toys.

“Boggs says the drone was 272 feet in the air when it was shot down”
Seems like a far distance for birdshot....90 yards....call me skeptical about how high the drone was, but that’s just me

At the risk of starting a big argument, do you think when people started flying airplanes that folks were plotting to shoot them down basically just for existing?
The commercial and industrial drone segment is just getting going. It's going to be huge, folks. These things are massively cheaper to build, fly, and support. The applications in utility work, mapping, inspections, etc. are huge and hard to ignore.

Actually it is not a federal offense as far as I can tell... just because a lawyer on TV that needs a haircut says it does not make it so.
It is illegal to fly a drone over people.. Also most states have privacy laws that protect people especially on their property... So, if a drone is directly over you on your property... who is first at fault? I'm not a lawyer even though I have played one on the internet.... usually in law if a bad thing happens the person who broke the first law is responsible for any thing bad that happens after that...
I know a guy who was alone out on his property and a drone flew over him and hovered for a while... until he got out his shot gun... The FAA eventually came and retreated the 'wounded ' drone... they did nothing to him.

Hmmm, those drones pictured look a lot like the units that BNSF Railway is using to do mapping and resource overflight work. They’ve been in the forefront of drone use and development as it relates to these areas and were one of the first companies to get approval for beyond visual range flight work. Not saying that’s what this is, but I wonder if there are BN tracks nearby...
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.
Are you sure about this? What reasonable expectation of privacy does a person have while standing out in the open, even if on their own property? None. If you put yourself out there and an airplane, helicopter, hot air balloon, blimp, Zeppelin, other dirigible, or drone happens to overfly you, there's nothing illegal about that.
Over their house? How high up do you think you own?
Lots of unexplored territory with Drones and over flights.
The butcher with the sharpest knife has the warmest heart.
|So let it be written, |
so let it be done...
I think it is about privacy, and at least one Judge agreed...
Remember this guy?
Judge rules man had right to shoot down drone over his house
'Live long and prosper'
|Savor the limelight|
I think I have a reasonable expectation that a person with a camera won't be 50 feet in the air over my property. You can bet if a person were to pull such a stunt, the airsoft guns and wrist rockets would be out in force. Possibly a BB gun as well. I'd have the same expectation about drones except bird shot wouldn't be off the table.

The FAA Is Now Investigating Colorado’s Mysterious Drones — And Sen. Cory Gardner Has Weighed In, Too
By Corey H. Jones December 31, 2019
A handful of eastern Colorado counties still have no answers about the drones flying overhead at night lately. And now U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado has weighed in.
“I’ve been in contact with the FAA and I’m encouraged that they’ve opened a full investigation to learn the source and purpose of the drones,” Gardner said in a statement. “I will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
Gardner is from Yuma, one of the five counties that have reported the groups of drones. He is also a member of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation and Space.
Phillips County Sheriff Thomas Elliott told CPR News last week that there have been sightings of about 17 drones with 6-foot wingspans flying in a grid pattern after 7 p.m.
“All we want to know is who they are and why are they doing it,” he said. “People don't like the possibility of the drones invading their privacy.”
Lincoln, Washington and Sedgwick counties have also had similar sightings. Officials say they do not believe the groups of drones are related to any criminal activity.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the activity Sunday night when one of its deputies saw a cluster of drones north of I-70.
The department is collaborating with the Federal Aviation Administration and the other counties, Lincoln County Sherrif's Capt. Michael Yowell said.
“At this point, any new information that we get we’re giving that to each other,” he said. “We cannot get close enough to take a photograph or get any video, all we can see is flashing lights.”
Drone flights are legal as long as they follow FAA rules. On Dec. 26, the FAA announced a proposal that would require drones to be tracked and identified using a Remote Identification system.
