California Firefighters Might Shoot Down Drones
J Thoendell stashed this in Tech
To help firefighters, the California State Assembly is considering giving them permission to take out drones in their way.
A bill being considered in the California Assembly would allow first responders to shoot drones out of the sky if they are hindering their job. This is in response to several incidents where drones hindered the efforts of firefighters and may have led to the death or injuries of people involved.
I'm surprised this is even a debate.
Of course firefighters should be allowed to do whatever is necessary!
