Drone use must be monitored.

But when you consider the benefits that will accrue with using drones to protect our border, search for lost and missing folks, assist LE in tracking down dangerous criminals, track storms without endangering pilots, provide traffic control info, and God knows what rlse, IMHO it would be foolish to disallow them simply because they MIGHT be misused.

That MIGHT BE MISUSED argument has been responsible for entirely too many gun restrictions.

That's a good point Locutus. But we're talking about the Imperial Presidency, a "Justice" Dept. that runs guns to drug dealers, a Supreme Court that not only doesn't defend the Constitution, but makes law and a government that not only no longer answers to the People, but that holds it in contempt. I find myself no longer able to ascribe good motives to any government entity.

I keep telling people, government is to bad, what fire is to hot.

We can bury our heads in the sand, and pretend that the rest of the world loves us, and that there really aren't any bad people in our country and that all we really need is a "Big iron" on out hip and we'll be safe.

Yes, we can pretend. But that won't make it so.

They (Government) says no armed drones flying within United States borders. Do you really trust them at their word.

I posted this last year and found the youtube video. This was prior to the NATO Sumit in Chicago. Comments is that the video was filmed in Eglin, IL about 40 miles from Chicago.

No armed drones - Yeah Right!

Focus on the highlighted part ... has there been a power/authority granted to LE or Gov't that has not been abused?


EVER?


Sorry, just because they can is not a reason for them to do

There were stories a number of months back about the government using drones domestically. There are threads here that quote legitimate sources about expanding drone use here in the USA. Even the MSM is reporting it. I love my County, I served my Country, but I no longer trust my government or the power mad politicians who think they're above the law. This administration represents itself, not "We the People".
