UAV's and our safety

There has been a lot of talk lately about the government and police use of UAV's and our privacy. A needed discussion certainly. But take a look at this:

Now anyone can get one of these, this one costs under $700 w/o camera. Pretty soon it's going to be dangerous to walk outside.

Pretty soon there will be an App for a phone and beer and pizza will land on the lawn or back deck on the phone.

Sounds good to me.

One question tho , as we own modest air rights over private property , will using government UAV ,instead of clay targets ,for shotgun practice allow us a modest tax deduction for trash removal?

Imagine the trouble that can be caused by one of these $300 drones in the hands of a few beer-drinking rednecks!
