Well, let us not forget that the NSA is brought to you by the same fine folks who brought you the FBI. Let us not forget, the FBI.... who spent two years investigating the lyrics to the song "Louie Louie" because somebody claimed the lyrics were hiding messages of obscenity.

They are doing it right. I am far more concerned about the citizens who would choose to illegally poach these drones without a license, or outside of the official hunting season.

I'm not so concerned that people would choose to shoot my multi rotor, if they're stupid enough to shoot it I guess I could be stupid enough to shoot back.

Legalized drone-hunting...

You can't make this stuff up: "Deer Trail, Colorado, (population: 532) were poised to vote on an ordinance that would legalize drone-hunting licenses and allocate 'bounties' for people who shoot down the aircrafts."

Drone Hunting Vote Is Squashed by Citizen Protest

Re: UAV shoot-down ordinance in Colorado town?

So I apologize for not realizing that this silly UAV shoot-down story was already posted here, and that 6 months ago! Anyways, here's a bit more humorous take on it that Steven Colbert did a couple of weeks ago -- and no, as Chris initially pointed out, this is actually a real "news" story and not something from The Onion:

Re: UAV shoot-down ordinance in Colorado town?

I was censored for a political comment on drones in another thread. Perhaps this comment will stick in this relevant conversation.... After all, there are political comments above.
Question:
In a country where the president can 'legally' assassinate people worldwide with drones, and where the 'intelligence' community considers everybody a potential terrorist to be spied on, is it really so ridiculous that people are considering extreme (though stupid) methods of counteracting an unconstitutional government?

HA -- actually my gut knee-jerk comment would be that I agree with you -- i.e., tit for tat, if you can hit them, just shoot them down ;^)
