    I'm becoming very concerned about problems with mid-air collisions. I mean if birds can bring a plane down, why not drones. You have Feds, State Police, Sheriff's Offices, local police, etc. wanting these drones and having too many in the air, well, I'm afraid it's just a matter of time before disaster strikes.
    I'm not personally afraid of them. I'm not a criminal or terrorist, so I'm not worried about them watching me. I am concerned about too much "stuff" up in the air.

    The use domestic drones should restricted by the government (federal, state, or local) to the following. Border control, looking for missing people (like children or others reported missing 24 hours ago not two years ago), by fire departments while fighting fires,  finding people like after a tornado, hurricane, earth quack , excreta, excreta, excreta. If any form of Law Enforcement federal, state, or local and yes that also means you DHS want to place any one under any kind of surveillance you must have a warrant!!! No warrant No change!!!

    Yes, I'm ok with that because drones will be used to help dust crops, fight forest fires, sell houses, shoot movies and assist local police in chasing suspects.
    Possible testing sites include airspace along the Canadian border near the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, and airspace near New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, among other areas already used for testing drones for the military, NASA and the Department of Homeland Security.
    The University of North Dakota was the first school to offer a four-year degree in piloting unmanned aircraft and is close to Grand Forks Air Force Base, home to the Air Force's Global Hawk and Predator drones as well as two Predators flown by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
    None of it will even start until the end of 2015.
    It's not gonna be anything like spying on American citizens like people think and fear.

    How did you NOT think this was inevitable? When the Economics of Scarcity really begin to take hold, the cries for "austerity" will echo through the land as police, fire and social services or the bulk of the population are cut to the bone and replaced by privatized security forces that will protect you if you can pay for it. The Rich DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU. Watch as the drones are first deployed over the inner cities, then expand out. They're ALREADY warching ALL your communications anyway. How long until the DHS begins deploying Hellfire missiles on drones over US cities?

    Yupp, but you don't own "Over your land" you just own the land. I hope you do shoot one down, becuse i would like to see the look on your face when they tell you how much your gonna have to pay to repair one of those million dollard drones, lol.
    Do you shoot at commercial jets when they fly over your land too?????

    The Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) says the United States Army and Air Force will not be used to police its own citizens, unless under the direction of the President of the United States (during time of great emergency, generally, to aid states in maintaining order).

    To my knowledge, no such permission has ever been given to take a multi-million dollar military weapon off of its national security duties in order to aid local law enforcement in catching a few not-particularly-talented common theives.

    Kind of makes you wonder how many terrorists got through while the US Air Force was off chasing down someone who had stolen a pig?

    No, this little liberal and former soldier is not cool with this, not one tiny little bit.
