A small Colorado town has a good idea: a $100 bounty for shooting down a drone. It will charge a $25 hunting license to make the whole deal legal.
There are restrictions. Shotguns only. No drones above 1,000 feet.
Can you shoot down a drone with a shotgun? The odds are against it. But as the proponents say, it’s a symbolic gesture. I like the gesture.
The ordinance has not passed yet. But it’s the thought that counts.
Would the federal government arrest you for shooting down one of its drones? Maybe. But it would be really bad publicity.
What’s next? Maybe a Scouting merit badge for building an anti-drone drone.
How about a drone-communications scrambling device?
