The town of Deer Trail, CO wants to consider selling drone hunting licensese that will anybody to shoot down drones that come into their city. Are you listening Obama? Well of course he is, he has the NSA spy program.
This could just be a smart gimmick to raise money but I hope it raises awareness too.
Deer Trail, Colorado has joined the backlash against the use of surveillance drones. According to ABC 7 News in Denver, the town board will vote on an ordinance to create drone hunting licenses and offer a $100 bounty to successful hunters.
Aptly-named Phillip Steel, a resident of the small town that lies about 60 miles east of Denver, drafted the ordinance, as notes ABC 7 News. According to the story, he stated, “We do not want drones in tow. They fly in town, they get shot down.”
And, while the town’s mayor believes the ordinance is a novelty, Steel’s motivations stem from the growing threat of big brother.
