Re: That "Thunderstorm" you just heard...
I agree with your sentiments, but I have reservations about the method.
What goes up must come down, and that applies to bullets. As a teacher I taught a girl who at fourteen became paralyzed for life after being hit by a stray bullet fire from a rifle over a mile away. The shot had been in the air as the shooter was clearing his rifle 'safely'. (This was in the African bush.)
It you could take the drone down with something non-lethal then good on you. I just worry about stray bullets. On balance I think the legislation is a safer route to go down.
