    At least, you can vote against her. I cannot, here in Ohio

    This is America, Firestat, where thousands of non-citizens vote every year, many twice. We will figure out a way!

    it would be hard to vote for her, since she is not on the Ohio Ballot.

    Hell, you don't even have to be from the USA in order to vote for her.

    Back to the issue here. This legislation will put onerous restrictions on non-commercial use of drones: height limits, geo-fencing, weather and time-of-day conditions, and who knows what else. This affects everyone in the country, not just California. Write or email your congressperson and tell them to leave our drones alone. The FAA already has non-commercial guidelines that seem to be working. We don't need additional legislation based on unfounded fears and suspicious data, e.g. a "close call" can be any sighting of a drone by a pilot, no matter how far away or whether the pilot considers it a danger.

    Here's a link to Feinstein's web page describing some of the draconian provisions of this bill:

    http://www.feinstein.senate.gov/pub...ecord_id=8c18ceb0-4ca0-4a1d-a251-cf8e9e94c06e

    Again, write or call your congress person and let your voice be heard.

    Kevin H.

    That broad has never met a law she doesn't like. We've been fighting her tooth and nail in the firearms industry for years. She is just another of so many do-gooders who think .gov should take care of us from the cradle to the grave. They think they can "legislate" the perfect Utopian society, usually having ZERO experience with whatever they're trying to ban at the time. Another great argument for term limits, and to repeal the 17th Amendment.

    From what I understand is that she is not running next year. I could be wrong, but I know Kamela Harris is gunning for the Senator seat here in California.

    This from the same person that stood on stage spouting the dangers of guns while holding one with her finger on the trigger...not a smart person.
