Why Not Arm the Spy Drones?

Seems like the Sheriff lives in his own little cocoon.

The Federal Aviation Administration has allowed several police departments to use drones across the U.S. They are controlled from a remote location and use infrared sensors and high-resolution cameras.

Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in Texas told The Daily that his department is considering using rubber bullets and tear gas on its drone.

“Those are things that law enforcement utilizes day in and day out and in certain situations it might be advantageous to have this type of system on the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle),” McDaniel told The Daily.

We'll say it again:  Buy More Ammo

Will a 30/06 round bring down a drone?

No, James, it will bring you jail time and a hefty fine. So, go ahead.

Our borders need protecting. GREAT tool for law enforcement. I'm sure the po-po have nothing better to do than to spy on TEA Party barbeques and summer Catholic festivals and rain down tear gas and rubber bullets on these "illegal activities".

More fake outrage about our "freedoms being taken away". You have nothing to worry about if you are a law-abiding citizen.

Depends on the altitude of the spycraft.

One round, right place: hell, yes.

Anony Law-and-Order doesn't get 4th Amendment's implications. The more I read, the more Griswold may have been correctly decided.

Grabbing ass, tits, and balls of grannies/grandpas at the airport isn't "law and order" either.
