    What is "an identifiable piece of a drone"? If that "piece" costs less than $50, or so, then this could get quite profitable.

    Deliberate destruction of government property, or righteous civil disobedience? Personally, I think the drones are unreasonable search because no warrant was issued, and unconstitutional laws should be disobeyed until repealed. But this has a public safety issue that sort-of muddys the water.

    You wouldn't shoot a police chopper would you? Police helicopters also do searches without warrants, you wouldn't gun them down? So what is the legal justification to do this with drones?

    Civil disobedience should never have a violent nature, that is not disobeying, that is taking your own views on legal issues into your own hands and being judge, jury and executioner. Or at least that is my view, violence can never be part of civil disobedience.

    Why would they need a permit or license if the government doesn't recognize it as a lawful license or permit?

    Someone shooting guns into the air is being neither responsible nor safe. This is grandstanding, nothing more.

    I am all for shooting down the drones.The government has no business spying on the people and it should be costly to the government when they do something they shouldn't. This town has a population of nearly 550,so I do not see a shot drone crash landing into someone's home. Although I think if I was to do such a thing I would not get a permit.Because the permit holders will be the first people the feds will be checking.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Undecided if I would ever take part in such civil disobedience... but if I did... I would do it with this rifle..

    It's a $22K rifle that allows any rank amateur to hit a moving target at 1000 yards... and live stream it to your ipad...

    Unlike a helicopter a drone doesn't have to manned and can go places a helicopter can without being noticed.Drones can also be mass produced.

    Civil disobedience should never have a violent nature, that is not disobeying, that is taking your own views on legal issues into your own hands and being judge, jury and executioner. Or at least that is my view, violence can never be part of civil disobedience.
    Violence? Shooting a drone amounts to spray painting, or some other act of vandalism not violence.

    Do you really want to bring the wrath of the government down on your head?

    You would have to bag a lot of drones in Deer Tail, CO to pay for that puppy!

    Re: FAA warns public against shooting guns at drones

    After thinking about it a bit more, I think a net made of clear nylon fishing line above your property might be the best way to catch a couple of drones.
