Colorado Town Considers Drone Hunting Licenses
Some really interesting pockets of The Crazy are cropping up in Colorado:
Deer Trail’s town board will vote Aug. 6 on an ordinance that would create drone-hunting licenses and offer $100 bounties for unmanned aerial vehicles.
“We do not want drones in town,” said Phillip Steel, the resident who drafted the ordinance. “They fly in town, they get shot down.”
Even though it’s against the law to destroy federal property, Steel’s proposed ordinance outlines weapons, ammunition, rules of engagement, techniques and bounties for drone hunting.
Drone-hunting licenses would be issued without a background investigation and on an anonymous basis. Applicants would have to be at least 21 years old and be able to “read and understand English.”
