    I propose a life sentence for any member of any law enforcement or alphabet agency using these any time they are not blatantly needed.

    Sure. Now legally define "blatantly" to a standard prosecutors and juries can use to convict.

    Oh, and read TFA:

    "The legislation would make it a felony carrying up to 20 years in prison for committing a crime using an unmanned aircraft equipped with a deadly weapon, and up to 10 years in prison for other crimes with a drone.

    Police could operate drones, but only for legitimate law enforcement purposes. Officers would have to get warrants, unless there’s an emergency."

    Ummm. Where is the "Shooting a Drone"? part. And where is the airspace owned by the state?

    Yeah. The article sounds like it means jailtime for someone using a drone to shoot something. Title of thread sounds like shooting down a drone will get you jailtime. Misleading title thread bro!

    just out of curiosity, what's the cargo capacity from a drone?? say like the one pictured in the article. I can see dropping a grenade, or other IED but not capable of holding a serious caliber fire arm. between payload weight and recoil, not that somebody won't try it.
