YEE HAW!!! THIS COLORADO TOWN PROMISES TO SHOOT DOWN OBAMA'S SURVEILLANCE DRONES
No one likes drones. The unmanned death machines float above Pakistani towns and Yemeni mountain ranges like hateful mechanized pterodactyls, seeming to destroy innocent civilians more often than they do their intended targets.

But it's not just killer war drones making us uncomfortable. This year has seen vast advances in the domestic use of surveillance drones, with the UK spending £2 million ($3 million) to police the skies above the G8 conference and the US approving their use for commercial purposes. In the post-Snowden landscape, many are understandably pissed off at the idea of their government flying cameras above their homes whenever they like and some have decided to do something about it. One of those people is Philip Steel, from the town of Deer Trail, Colorado.

Philip has drafted an ordinance that aims to allow Deer Trail residents to shoot down drones, and actively reward them for doing so. The ordinance first came before the town committee in August and was stalled at a vote of 3–3, for and against. With a new vote set for October the 8, the story has since gone viral, not least because the town clerk Kim Oldfield has said that she expects the ordinance to pass at the second election.

Even if Steel's calls for civil war, love of killer weapons, and anti-Obama rhetoric make him seem like the kind of NRA-loving right-winger whose views would usually infuriate me, the prospect of a bunch of guys chasing drones around the Wild West with shotguns is kind of romantic. I gave Philip a call to learn more about his proposals.

Good find.

'Drone season’ opens in Colorado, 1000 permits issued

Would-be drone hunters are limited in what they may use to take down unwanted drones, and must equip themselves only with 12-gauge or smaller shotguns, loaded only with ammunition that’s safe to fire into the sky, namely lead and steel shot and no shotguns with rifled barrels. Tracers are completely disallowed.

Drones are wrong. Drones spying on people is an invasion of privacy. Drones killing people is against the rights of people to a fair trial, the right to face your accusers and defend yourself against the accusations. There is no rule of law any more. This is disgusting to me. To say that any government has the right and authority to send an unmanned drone out to murder a person who has been accused of a crime without allowing that person the right to defend is heinous. How many people have been murdered unjustifiably? We will never know because they never had their day in court to defend themselves. How many people have died because there was a grudge against them, or another person wanted their property or power or didn't want to be exposed by what that person knew. How many innocent people have died as collateral damage?

I was against this when it was started in other countries like Pakistan and I am still against it now, anywhere.

We must return to the rule of law that was formed over many centuries. We must do it now before it is too late.
