Re: Target practice
Lorna, I think you're right.  It certainly might give the NRA and gun lobby fresh ammo, pardon the pun, for protecting citizens' rights.  In the meantime, I  think it's time to invest in the next big business in home electronics: Drone Detectors!  And update those threatening "No Trespassing" signs for property owners to include a crossed out image of a drone.

Target practice
Wow, initiatives in Texas, Alaska, Nevada, Virginia and North Dakota. Anyone care to wager on which state will have some yahoo decide to shoot down a drone in the name of freedom? My money is on Texas.

Seriously, it's only a matter of time. What will be the FAA's response?
