“Drones hover twenty-four hours a day over communities in northwest Pakistan, striking homes, vehicles, and public spaces without warning. Their presence terrorizes men, women, and children.” - ACLU, posted Jan 28, 2013.

Becoming what you were seeking to destroy

War not only kills massive levels of innocent civilians, but it is also a theft from the people to fill the pockets of war profiteers while people go hungry in the streets.

Sorry this next round of printing money is for the banks and corporations. Trickle down economics origin.

Did you know icons of the truth movement are linked to the drone development community? The leaders of 9-11 truth in some ways.

I put a bucket out to catch some of the trickle down, when I checked it, it was filled with bullshit.

War is the enemy of all of us. Makes us inhuman.

And the profiteers are the house and congress along with the rest of those with bucks. We could just let them have their money and make new ways to trade and now that war has been declared on "the fed" it may just be on the fast track to what is going on Amen We work together everything work out just fine. One thing that may be passed on is to comfort those people living on checks S.S. etc that the People will continue to see them through they will look forward to being contributors helping repair damages.

Drones have already been used on US soil for monitoring purposes. Texas A&M has a drone R&D center. There was a story some months back about students complaining about the drones flying around the campus. Also, at the grand opening of the new Austin, TX Grand Prix track the cops used drones to monitor traffic (so they said). And some drones have been used along the Texas – Mexico border to catch drug crossings.

I saw a news story that interviewed the owners of a drone manufacturing company. The displayed several types and sizes of drones, from high flying stealth drones to smaller multi-engine helicopter drones that could dart about and hover like a hummingbird.

The day is not far off when our sky’s will be filled with law enforcement and private industry drones. Our privacy will be lost.

An aquaintance in a model airplane flyer's club told me of some guy who has a semi auto gun and a camera mounted on a quad copter which he flies using an ipad along with a joy stick transmitter. Just for kicks I assure you, but think about it. I wonder how such things are covered by the 2d amendment?

Apparently current world court rules don't apply to armed drone aircraft, so anyone can get in on it.

I don't know how it will be covered by the 2nd amendment. But I think someone on the ground with a .308 Winchester with good optics will handle most drones. I think if drones get bad enough, sales of .308 rifles will increase..

I suppose that is why .308 rifles are protected by the 2d amendment.

I wonder how knocking a government owned drone which is snooping in ones backyard out of the sky will be judged?

I wonder if somebody can hack the NSA software which is snooping in on our internet communications, and how that would be judged?

I suppose we can use the 2d amendment to protect the 4th amendment....
