Glad you posted that !!!!!
Apparently that judge has the same idea about them as a lot of people do . That and the fact that it can be used as a tool for criminals , making their job of scoping out a place that much easier . The fact that a shotgun was used to down it , means that it was flying very low over the guys house .They are getting to be a problem . There have already been several near misses with civil / commercial aviation , police and emergency service helicopters . They are a new toy , expect new laws and regulations coming down the pike for them , as their misuse continues . Like a lot of things , its the irresponsible jackass that ruins it for everybody . I would like to see their ceiling reduced to a 100 ft. max . , out of the way of most air traffic , and well in range of civil firearms >;)
