Apples and Oranges

Ok, I'm not just arguing for the sake of arguing, but while I appreciate your perspective, and admire the way you worded it... I think you're missing the point. Obviously I support the right of an American citizen to own any gun they want. However, a weaponized drone is very different from an AR-15 or even an AK47... it's a remotely controlled killing machine. If I have an AR-15 and I want to kill you I have to approach you physically pull the trigger to do any damage. How do you not understand that flying an automated airplane packed with ordinance that could accidentally fall out of the sky and blow up your house, is a completely different animal. The gun dates back to 1400, the predator drone dates to 1994.

Hey, remember this story? Next time it could be your house!
