Default Gun firing drone draws attention

Local police, the FAA and even the FBI are investigating this 18 year old kid and his use of a drone as a firing platform. It was on his private property and no animals were hurt in his demo. But I am sure he is already listed in homeland security files as a possible threat.

How come nobody thought about some bad guy strapping a box/can with ANFO or similar to a camera-drone?
As much fun as it is to use drones for fun and filming/photography, how come nobody yet thought about the risk they pose?

Sure they have that is why we have no fly zones. Drones and gyros copters are slow and low flying under radar, they are a very real threat.

Oh, okay.
My bad.
We don't have those zones over here, so I wondered.
Maybe I should do a little research next time.

No fly zones will/are as effective as no gun zones. Someone with bad intentions will ignore them. So if you see a drone coming in for a landing carrying a pressure cooker, run.

Well this Kentucky home owner took the opposite view on drones and shot one down..he now faces felony charges. If it was me I'd probably do the same thing.
