    By the continued reference to these devices as drones means they are military weaponry that has no legal use in the civilian market and must operate out of airports and government sanctions that can be also to include military armed and grade of drones to spy and hunt down americans being americans.

    We and the laws don't have a problem with model aircraft and remote controlled toys converted to civilians use, but we cannot allow laws that legalize military weaponry for civil use.

    I would have no qualms about shooting down military grade drones regardless of who claims them. Described functions and uses for civil jobs is baseless and a lie and not even cost effective substitute of human replacements.

    Most business that could use drone technology can't afford the multimillion dollars price tag of each drone and the cost of maintaining would be more than renting aircraft and pilots to do the same inspections for 1/10th the cost of drones. This is a hoax to sell the idea of drones as public use vehicles, its a lie.

    Not to worry, everyone shall soon be able to arm themselves with a concealed (overhead) drone armed with the "Constitutionally" protected drone they can buy at gun shows.
