    I just received a magazine with this in it, seems crazy like people are acting like drones are dangerous and killing people, I mean really!? What's going on for someone to have to shoot down a drone? Just thought I would warn everyone of what's to come!

    Wasn't "SkyNet" the name of the sentient computer system that annihilates humanity in "The Terminator" series???

    HA...where is the forehead-slapping emoji? I need that right now

    (yes, Skynet was the name of the computer responsible for the terminator giving the thumbs up in the gif I attached)




    Also yeah...not legal.

    I was thinking that's where that gif came from ... wasn't sure since it's been a few years since I saw any of those movies.

    Interesting, so they've gone from Drone Munition which blasts them out of the sky to a 'safer' shotgun-deployed net. The ad claims they are safe "as the net parachutes back to ground to reduce unwanted damage or injury." Three pack for $19.99. 12 Gauge Skynet Drone Defense – 3 Pack | BUDK.com - Knives & Swords At The Lowest Prices!

    Video cartoon video of Skynet in action:


    Other ways to do it:


    Sadly, this is becoming a sport. May as well just ban all drones like some countries and cities like Mysuru, India. That or pay for some $2,000/day permit that comes with a drone cop to oversee the flight for commercial work and make all others illegal.
