Why is this controversial?

If an armed man is in the process of committing a crime, it is perfectly legitimate to use force to stop him. As Rand says, what difference does it make whether it's a cop with a gun or a cop with a drone?

Drones aren't the problem (I assure you, the government is perfectly capable of oppressing and/or murdering you the old fashioned way: Hitler and Stalin had no drones). The problem is the use of drones for unconstitutional searches or the killing of people who are NOT in the process of committing a crime.

Rand said nothing in this interview contrary to anything he said before, and nothing contrary to libertarian principles.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."
