    Not wanting remote controlled or autonomous robots flying around is akin to government using your phone to spy on your? I can leave my phone at home,wrap it in foil or take the battery out.Good luck doing that with drone.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    Does it have a roundel with a black heart symbol on a blood red background?

    If so it is one of the cutting edge drone choppers that the CIA and NSA are developing in a joint project. It is armed with both laser and microwave incineration devices. Prolly nothing you need to worry about if your nose is clean. Of course, If some clown presses a wrong button by mistake, or if some intel SNAFU fingers your peaceful abode as a terrorist safe house then you have had it, but you will be vaporized too fast to feel anything.

    Re: Would you support civilian application of drones?

    In answer to the poll, yes I do support limited civilian application of drones.
    I anticipate that 50 years from now FedEx, UPS and the US Postal Service
    will using be them for most if not all local delivery.

    And as far as the police go I have no problem with surveillance and other
    features by which drones might help apprehend criminals of all types. I do
    not give a fvck if I myself happen to appear coincidentally in any of the video,
    and I think having the video makes it much less likely that me or anyone
    else will the the victim of false accusation.

    The aircraft and pilot licensing procedures which have been in place for close
    to a century provide models for limiting the use of drones to those who know
    how to operate them and those who need to know how to operate them.
    Considerable consumer savings should be available if companies like Amazon
    could deliver via drone.

    On the other hand, I am not at all sure that there is any social benefit to giving
    your local detective agency a drone license to make it easier to see whose
    husbands are screwing around with whose wives at which cheap motel. No doubt
    suits, countersuits and appeals will get all such squalid legal details ironed out by
    about mid-century.

    Only if I can arm my drone.

    I'm no luddite, but American citizens have yet to master the ability of driving an automobile.
