Blivit: Lol. Why, certainly. Plenty of those floating around these days.

Wait a minute, someone is filtering their data wrong… go look at the original article, the top 10 are: Fishermen, loggers, aircraft pilots, misc extraction workers(whatever they are), iron and steel workers, roofers, garbage collectors, farmers and ranchers, driver/sales workers and truck drivers, power line installers and repairers. come on blaze, get the facts straight!!

jamming is illegal and may also affect other systems nearby, besides different drones use different frequencies and control methods so its likely no single jammer will do it. shooting may also be illega depending on the city/state, in more populated areas like they showed you will likely not be able to legally or safely shoot it down…. EXCEPT… think supersoaker or garden hose with a good stream. most of those small drones will either die when soaked or will be upset enough to lose control and crash or shutdown.
....paintball gun? The cleanup might discourage repeat offenders, and the word "paint" in this context will defuse some of the people who go ballistic over words linked with guns. Look at the back and forth between Chuck and Paladin above.
Ignorance should perhaps not be coddled, but really the number of people who go off half cocked is significant. Even some people in the law enforcement/court system are not always as informed as they should be. If there is a dispute, do you want terms that may set off someone's conditioned attack reflex?
Not agreeing or disagreeing with anyone yet, just thinking.
CrazyTravis I got hooked by the click bait too.
I thought the mystery "it" was probably not dangerous, but wondered about surveillance/control linking to in-house systems. Smart homes are vulnerable to hacking that would not even exist as possibilities otherwise.
Maybe so. But you aren't interfering with a broadcast transmission. If you use a highly directional low-power signal straight up in the air from your backyard, would be hard to track, prove and prosecute it.

now wait just one gosh darn minute…. they are going to transfer $16B in ‘unallocated funds’ to that account?????? just WHY are the $16B in ‘unallocated funds’ ???? that sounds like someone’s slush fund to me! I want my part of that fund back!!! or use it to reduce taxes or pay off debt! don’t just give it to another agency that is failing already!!!

Say what? when i was 6 i had to walk almost a mile to/from school every day, and except for maybe the first couple days i was on my own to deal with traffic and 4th grade bullies. by the time i was 9 or 10 i had a bike and could go just about anywhere, one of my favorite places was a park along a small river about 3 miles away where we could catch crayfish and other critters that our parents didn’t like us bringing home as ‘pets’… or turn a rusty cement mixing tub into a boat and go floating down stream.

agreed. definately not a bob cat. maybe cougar that got its tail too close to one of it’s previous catches!

WHAT! Inflatable Lasar Tag????? they won’t show a movie about shooting, but they’ll give students class 1 assault weapon lookalike firearms and let them ‘target’ each other!?!?!?!? how dare they place the poor students in such a traumatizing situation! Oh, and the bear stuff is just plain dumb.

that might actually be useful if they could use a drone to fly it right to your window and drop it off!

power line arcs, probably at substations. note on the first one the light on the ground under the lit up cloud. reports of flickering lights would be consistent with that. there may be terrorist attacks on power lines they don’t want to divulge, or perhaps the faults just weren’t bad enough to really damage anything.
WHAT??? who was able to get into the school, access all those lockers and not be detected??? They better find out it is an administrator or janitor and not someone who wasn’t meant to be there!

well, i have been called a scientist, though i don’t play one on tv like kerry! apples usually do fall down… but water doesn’t always freeze at 32f, under pressure it will remain liquid much colder than that… get a clue kerry. i won’t consider ‘climate science’ as settled until they can predict with as much certainty as i can about what temperature water freezes what the weather will be in a week, let alone predicting the number of hurricanes 10 years from now, or average temperatures 100 years from now!

i’ve shot lots of rounds through my ar-15 and have plenty more in stock but don’t think i have even seen that stuff for sale around here. i would be much more likely to use a hollow point or ‘power point’ for hunting and simple fmj for target practice than that m855 stuff for either.
Bivit...this is just the start, they will expand the ban to other ammo.
blivit, if you have ever bought any of the bulk stuff from cheaper than dirt or other outlets, tulamo, PVI, and other russian made ammo you are buying steel core ammo... My shooting club doesn't allow steel core on the indoor ranges because it is hard on the back stop so they do a quick magnet check... you would be suprised how much of the cheap ammo is steel core... I know I was
I bought 100's of pulled M855's and use them in reloading. They work great for punching holes in paper.

another option are laser firing rounds. you can get them with a switch where the primer would be and shoot at laser triggered targets. nice way to practice.

if the company doesn’t like it they should just insist on paying half the salary to Jesus directly, that should solve their problem pretty quick.
in many states like Mass they could do this right now without any extra tracking…. every year the mileage gets reported to the state when the car is inspected. just add a mileage charge on to the annual inspection fee, no additional data collection, just add a mileage since last year charge to the existing system. no privacy issues, no extra hardware in the car, nothing!

ewwwww! some of the stuff on the floors is probably worse than the beds, and harder to clean!!
