    A drone is not a military device, nor are firearms 'dangerous weapons'. Drones originated as a tool farmers used to monitor crops without having to go out psychically. It began as your typical RC aircraft with a beefed up antenna and a camera. The AirForce began a program to develop remote controlled aircraft off of this tool, for surveillance and air-to-air target practice for pilots. Only recently have RC aircraft evolved into drones, and as you can see, civilians can use drones.

    No, they're penned sheep living off of whatever their ideology allows.

    I bet you could, if it crashed on your property. Hitting your house would be a plus, I'm sure.

    Yeah...but then they'd probably just send in the ATF to "finish" the job (aka, set my house on fire and shoot me if I run out).

    This drone stuff is scary and ominous.

    Could someone theoretically send a thousand drones to circle around your house at all hours?

    Is the "air" above your property technically still privately owned?

    I think you should be allowed to shoot and disable any drone near your person. Whether you're in your backyard, in the forest hunting game, whatever. We are entitled to a reasonable sense of privacy.

    Don't shoot them down, just carry a portable RF jammer and let it fall down.
    No mess to explain or lawsuit to worry about.

    In effect yes and no.
    You generally have to allow for airplanes, but a drone flying over your property without your permission piloted by PETA would be trespassing I believe.
