    Drones and hunting season

    A slightly different take on the subject: the kind of people who design aerial drones musing on how their work may be used.

    "While the claim is that the drones are to be used to catch the bad guy, and maybe itís true, will they also be used to catch the good guy?"

    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    The drones involved are said to have a takeoff weight of 25 lbs. or less and have cameras that can record the scenery in HQ quality. Supposedly a DHS official concluded after conducting a Privacy Impact Assessment that the drones pose no safety issues. Well, that’s reassuring.
    I’m guessing #2 shot and a full choke should work quite well?
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    The drones I worked with weighed more than 25 lbs, with Hellfires loaded of course. Wouldn't be a good idea to shoot at them. They shoot back.

    What goes up must come down. Maybe the drones just need a little help getting down is all.
