Surveillance drones blasted out of the sky in protest against 4th amendment intrusion

Following columnist Charles Krauthammer’s observation that the first person to shoot down a surveillance drone on U.S. soil will be a “folk hero,” gun enthusiasts in Texas have done precisely that as a protest against the use of spy drones on the American people.

Using consumer drones as target practice, Alex Jones and the Steiner brothers tested out the best way to bring down the drones on the 10,000 acre Steiner ranch as part of filming for Brothers in Arms, a new show which focuses on firearms and the second amendment.

With spy drones now commercially available for less than $1,000 dollars that are barely any different from the ones being used by police departments to spy on the public, Jones and the Steiners made short work of the devices during filming.

This was an exercise in pushing the message that the use of surveillance drones in U.S. skies must be politically shot down because it represents a complete violation of the 4th amendment right to privacy.

Congress recently passed legislation paving the way for what the FAA predicts will be somewhere in the region of 30,000 drones in operation in US skies by 2020.

Privacy advocates have warned that the FAA has not acted to establish any safeguards whatsoever, and that lawmakers are not holding the agency to account.

In addition, a recently uncovered Air Force document circumvents laws and clears the way for the Pentagon to use drones to monitor the activities of Americans.

Incidents involving the drones in recent months have hardly provided positive spin for the industry, which is why Americans are set to witness a massive PR campaign that will “bombard the American public with positive images and messages about drones in an effort to reverse the growing perception of the aircraft as a threat to privacy and safety.”

Earlier this month, a mystery object, thought to be a military or law enforcement drone, flying in controlled airspace over Denver almost caused a catastrophic mid air crash with a commercial jet.

Last summer, police in North Dakota used a Predator drone to spy on a family who refused to give back three cows and their calves that wandered onto their 3,000-acre farm.

Watch out for the next episode in which you’ll see a full size drone blasted out of the sky. Watch the first installment of Brothers in Arms below.

The police are using small drones the approx. size of the commercial drones Alex and company shot down in this video. I know some may not like Alex for whatever reason but he's not stupid. The first logical step here was to shoot down a commercial drone and then, as stated in the video get an actual police drone to test, and fire upon.

The intent here is much more than just shooting like cowboys at remote control planes. They are trying to get people contemplating how to take these things down. This includes gun enthusiasts and tech nerds that can more than likely build machines of their own to disrupt and possibly knock these police drones right out of the sky. Imagine an anti-drone, civilian technology capable of a mid air type flechette/shotgun blast aimed at the propellers of a police drone such as this one:

MMhhh does EMF jamming their control counts? There's got to be more than one way to pluck these chickens

Somebody will mate tech like this to multispectral sensors/optics and a large cal self loader...

Or

Someone will build their own drones to take down those of the PTB.
