Deer Trail Considers Hunting Licenses for Drones: Video! Cool Idea!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Deer Trail`s town board will vote Aug. 6 on an ordinance that would create drone-hunting licenses and offer $100 bounties for unmanned aerial vehicles.


Even though it`s against the law to destroy federal property, Phillip Steel`s proposed ordinance outlines weapons, ammunition, rules of engagement, techniques and bounties for drone hunting.

Drone-hunting licenses would be issued without a background investigation and on an anonymous basis. Applicants would have to be at least 21 years old and be able to `read and understand English.`"

Denver Post

The proposed ordinance would charge $25 for a drone hunting license. Money is tight and municipalities have to think outside the box to raise revenue.

I think it`s a pretty fair bet that the town of Deer Trail will never have to pay a $100 bounty to a citizen who downs a drone.

A city could raise millions selling UFO-hunting licenses to citizens wary of a Martian invasion. Many god-fearing and UFO-fearing citizens would love an excuse to shoot their weapons at the sky.

Philip Steel, who drafted the proposed ordinance, is just making a point about how the federal government is trampling our civil liberties and robbing us of every last shred of privacy.

I doubt that Deer Trail is in the radar of the federal government, but there are plenty of drones flying over our major cities. The mayor of a big city should issue permits for shooting down unmanned drones. If an individual is lucky and brings down a drone he may be guilty of destroying federal property, but he would instantly become a hero and a celebrity.

I can`t think of a more patriotic act than shooting down an unmanned drone.

Do your patriotic duty and shoot  down a drone! Fight The Power!
