They are nuts. What are they afraid of???
USA can permit this number of drones?
Are not there more important things to invest in??

Are ready for the broader implications of this? Surveillance without warnings or notice on anyone and everyone?

This is clearly a safety issue for commercial airline flights, as well as a constitutional issue of domestic spying. Anywhere corporations think they can make big bucks, they will certainly impinge on our rights....and will probably end up costing us taxpayers tons of money in the end. Thumbs down to drones.

great. We can get whacked by a malfunctioning drone falling on us. I used to worry about "blue ice" falling out of airplanes. This is the pits.
So, if we accidentaly swat one of those things to smithereens, will we be arrested? Charged with terrorism? Stay tuned.

Wow...Just..Wow! If someone had written a story in the 80's about this happening in the United States of America we would have called it Science Fiction. Now it is just business as usual. It is as though I have traveled to a parallel universe and the US now looks like Cold War Era USSR.
