In reply to comment: I agree with judge nap (see in situ)

(((((((((((((((Hi Granger)))))))))))))))

Does the city have the right to take out the store owner's store front when it fires an air to ground missile?

Again, how do you know the person shooting the gun is a robber and not the store owner?

How do you know the robber doesn't have a hostage in tow?

How do you know the store owner is not right behind the robber in a chase?

I haven't listened to judge nap yet. But I will.

And I WANT to stand with RAND. But I don't want to hear about police shooting people on the spot because they have a gun and some money in their hands.

You say constitutional rights? When someone 14 year old robs a liquer store with a beebee pistol it is OK for a drone to take her out?

But now the law reads "Shoot to kill if someone comes out of a liquer store with a gun and $50.

That does not sound right to me.
