Drones patroling the neighborhoods.

When I wrote the book, the use of drones for spying on Americans was a page 21 news item. Now they are becoming so common that one Colorado town has proposed legalizing a shoot them down ordinance which would provide citizens the authority to shoot one down using a shotgun.

An excerpt from the book:
"On the ground and booked into motel rooms, Mark calls Susan to let her know of the delay.  Mark asks; “So, what’s happening there, anything new?”
Susan responding says; “No not really, well yes, there was. Two days ago, I was on the tractor plowing up a plot for our vegetables when a shadow flew across my path right in front of me.  Looking up to see what it was, I saw a small plane flying over.  It was gone over the tree tops before I could get a good look at it, but it appeared to be one of those drones we’ve seen pictures of on the news.  Otherwise, just the usual stuff; another letter from the energy department, a call and a visit from two Solar manufacturers, a call from the agriculture department, and another letter from the energy department, again requesting an immediate response to an urgency of national importance."


And now back to reality.

Deer Trail's town board will vote Aug. 6 on an ordinance that would create drone-hunting licenses and offer $100 bounties for unmanned aerial vehicles.

Citing its “sovereign airspace,” the proposal calls drone surveillance and “unlawful attack from a belligerent foreign power” and an “act of war.” In the name of “resistance to tyranny in support of the common defense,” it calls for the town to license residents to shoot down unmanned aerial vehicles under certain conditions, for the small fee of $25. - See more at: http://americanvision.org/8835/local-drones-seen-as-act-of-war/#sthash.WMiDRlOJ.dpuf
