This is pretty Orwellian.

Yes but to be fair more people smoke tobacco and more often. I don't think somebody could be a pack a day maryjane smoker, doubt they could even move after half a pack.

From what little I have read. They fly too fast/high for most RC stuff. Its dang hard to fly into a moving target (even if you has speed/range/power)
Shooting up is dang h ard to hit a target. How high do you think they fly? How much lead do you need for a drone?
This assumes you even see the thing.
BTW looks like they are getting a bunch in Grand Forks. (to patrol the border) We have so dang many illegals comming from Canada. (just to get away from health car I assume)

Your monotonous return to the same refrain regardless of thread topic makes one wonder what kind of flora might be a part of your "Florist" business.

Yeah...those sneaky Canadians have been biding their time and waiting for the southern border issues to take the heat off of them while they come over here to buy up our cheap smokes, beer and TVs...

My mother is Canadian....or at least she was until she finally got her US citizenship in 2007 so she could vote against Obama at 87 years old. Even after that....I still keep an eye on her...can't trust those hockey fanatics!!

For all this drone talk... cops in choppers have been doing the same exact thing in every large city in this nation since the 70's. So now its a unmanned aircraft rather than a couple of guys with tech in a noisey chopper. Whats the difference as far as a citizens personal intrusion? Not much.

People make a big deal of a drone flying over a sporting arena but couldnt care less about the LAPD choppers that have been over and around their neighborhood for a decade.

Personally I do not feel violated if someone sees what they can see from a perfectly lawful place no matter if its a chopper, drone, balloon in the sky or a dude on top of a skyscraper with a telescope. If I am missing something sinister, please explain.

Again? ... Still!

That Willis rant is the definitive Glock moment. That every detail of it is fiction has become ... Irrelevant!

It's more socially acceptable and easier to protect our borders from Canadians, than from the Southern border where the largest potential voter base comes from.

Even if you could fly a modestly sized RC airplane into the Reaper, it'd destroy your RC and fly home with nothing more than a few chips in its paint and body panels.


they're pretty tough, and damn big compared to an RC. You'd lose.

What the actual *blank*.

I've heard a lot of rediculous misconceptions about semi autos, but that is the worst.

Unless there's a "heavy artillery" section next to the hunting section I don't know about

At what point do the useful idiots wake up? Is it when you are disarming and interring your fellow citizens? Or is it when they are done with you and line you up on the wall as well?


It seems there is no end of .gov employees willing to rationalize every little step towards the brave the world. Guess what guys, its gonna get you too.
