    Do some research before posting about a Bill that had already died long ago

    Apr 17, 2013
    During today’s Senate Judiciary Committee work session, “Senator Floyd Prozanski announced that Oregon Senate Bill 71 is dead.”

    WOW, you guys in the states really like to go big or go home.

    90% of these units are toys that children and amateurs use. 9.999% are used by serious amateurs, or small video production companies trying to make a buck. The remaining percentage could be used by terror organizations, but there are far easier ways to get the information you can get from a Phantom with a gopro.

    The simple fact is, the US government can take a picture of a family eating a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken from space, and tell you how many pieces of chicken, and what part of the chicken is left in the box. They can give you an 8X10 that's clearer than your best DSLR.

    So does the state really think outlawing a 59 cent camera on a $30 toy is going to change the world?

    I know it's serious stuff, but there needs to be some checks and balances somewhere in your system.

    Good Luck
