Drones Will Get the Same Punishment As Abusing a Drug Dog...

Just watch. Any harm done to a DRUG DOG is considered ASSAULT ON AN OFFICER OR MANSLAUGHTER if you kill it. They will try to impose these same laws on drones.

Intent to harm drone

Felony : 3 - 6 years in the new Janet Napolitano collectivism re-education centers. Shit! I'm already "guilty"
Oh well : here's another concept:

Low tech close-quarters drone-killa :

Compound-action sling-shot w/ weighted-netting payload to snare and drop the smaller multi-copter style hovering surveillance drones :)----

Drone killa challenge : post your best ideas at Daily Paul :)----

Someone

Someone should create an online group to raise funds to create a medal as reward for the first person to shoot down and capture a drone.

Countermeasure

I can see an entrepreneur designing a personal anti-domestic drone device that jams the drone or sends a pulse to disable it.

My benchmark: Police speed radar spurred the development of the radar detector industry.

Sun concentrator / reflector drone-blinder

Sunny day only low tech homemade dronestoppers ( or at least maybe mess up the sensors ) might be possible to take out a small hovering-type drone.
My god-given natural law right of self-defense includes taking out menacing drones.
Idea: The Colorado drone-killer proving grounds :)
Whose got some spare drones and a ranch?

Damn right they will, get

Damn right they will, get the medals ready.......if they can

Just keep peoples lives at the forefront, and should probabably expect government to blame machanical failure on anti droners too if not a out right false flag attempt, IF people DO start drone target practising that is.

Still hoping for hope

Anti-IR fabric

You know you can order anti-IR fabric from china textile mills for relatively cheap, they can't hit you if they can't see you xD

Please post more about this.

Got any links?

I dont think many people are

I dont think many people are going to be able to shoot these down. However, hackers all across the country will and are already taking over these things and using them as remote conrol airplanes. It is actually really easy to do if you know what you are doing.

Apperantly, they are taken over all the time over Africa but the hackers are smart and only assume control for a short period of time then return the drone to a similar location so the original controller thinks they just temporarily lost a signal. Its actually quite fun from what I have heard.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

You're thinking of the

You're thinking of the Predator, Reaper, Warrior, Hunter, and Shadow drones which fly at several thousand feet; only a few Federal Policing Agencies have anything like that. The drones which the average police are purchasing are like those quadrocopters. They are practically modified toy RC Helicopters; these can be shot down because they don't fly at high altitudes.

You may have just solved my problem!!!

In this crappy economy, I'm struggling like so many others...but this post and article has my lightbulb turned on!! How about a shooting school to teach students how to best bring these suckers down? Whether it's gold, silver or whatever your best investment is ALWAYS in yourself! Learn to garden, fish, hunt, archer, sneek & evade, and of course blow those drones out of the sky!!!
