Your quote:

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on perspective) combining two technologies into an object you don't like doesn't make it illegal.


is wrong. Not sure what you're talking about with the fear stuff etc. etc. I quote you earlier so it should be explicit what I was referring to

Clearly you have a distinct aversion to firearms. This fear is referred to as hoplophobia.

30ft x 10+

Not to mention what recoil would do to the flying ability of a drone like that.



Programing counter measures into the flight controls and choosing a round like the 5-7 could really make for something practical.

Cooper's opinion was that "the most common manifestation of hoplophobia is the idea that instruments possess a will of their own, apart from that of their user."


Sounds like I'm off the hook since I blame the wielder not the instrument. Thanks for your input though.

Oh so you are scared of people who don't have guns? Or is it the gun that makes them scary to you?

Clearly that is a lie.

A gun lying by itself in the middle of a field would not be frightening to me in any manner. It's not dangerous. When said weapon is picked up by an individual it becomes dangerous because people can shoot it (intentionally or unintentionally). This is an obvious point, no?

I'm not sure what you are saying is a lie.

I said "charges". It was meant as a catchall phrase, because states have varying charges for manslaughter, murder, etc. It was meant as "charging someone for causing a death without malice or motive".

Guns don't kill people.

People don't kill people.

Bullets don't kill people.

Loss of blood and damage to internal organs kills people!

We should make it illegal for blood to leave the body.

It's completely possibly that I could cause a wrongful death and be charged with manslaughter for actions taken with items that are totally legal Whats your point exactly?
