    "(CNN) -- Deer Trail, a small Colorado town, is considering a measure that would allow its residents to hunt for federal drones and shoot them down.

    "Is it illegal? Of course it is. But it's also illegal to spy on American citizens," resident Phillip Steel told CNN in a phone interview. "If they fly in town, we will shoot them down.""

    A guy I used to work with would hide in the woods by a place people liked to RC airplanes. He and his buddy would wait with shotguns, blow a couple out of the air, and then run like hell.

    I doubt that'll work on drones, tho...

    I would think that would depend on the number of gunners? I figure ten or so folks with rifles, and shotguns could bring one down.... maybe? WOuld be fun to see them try, none the less!

    It would be hilarious if one was shot down, after protests from the government, saying they'd never be used on American citizens. :jj:

    And remember, the Iranians shot one down so I'm sure a group of Americans in Colorado have the same type of fire power. :giggle:

    You are picturing the stereotypical war/kill brown people in sand drones in Iraq, etc carrying missiles and shit.

    The type of drone hovering over a city collecting information s going to look more like this and can be easily taken down with not much more than a pellet gun.

    In this Jan. 8, 2009, photo provided by the Mesa County, Colo., Sheriff's Department, a small Draganflyer X6 drone is photographed during a test flight in Mesa County, Colo., with a Forward Looking Infer Red payload. People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday, July 19, 2013, in response to a proposed ordinance in a small Colorado town that would encourage hunters to shoot down drones. In a statement released in response questions about an ordinance under consideration in the farming community of Deer Trail, the FAA reminded the public that it regulates the nation’s airspace, including the airspace over cities and towns.(AP Photo/Mesa County Sheriff's Unmanned Operations Team)

    Small arms fire would down any drone. Small arms fire has downed helicopters. The issue is trying to reach the drone. It would have to be flying low.

    EDIT: Damn, :ninja:
