People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday.
The FAA released a statement in response to questions about an ordinance under consideration in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colo., that would encourage hunters to shoot down drowns. The administration reminded the public that it regulates the nation’s airspace, including the airspace over cities and towns.
“I want to take a stand against the coming surveillance society that seems to be rushing in on us,” Phillip Steel, a resident in town who drafted the ordinance and submitted it for approval by the town board, told “Fox and Friends.”
