Who needs video games when you can shoot down stuff for real prizes from home?!

There are also far more Cessnas than Drones in the air at any given time. And Cessnas can't carry live ordinance.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

That's why I said per flight hour but that's okay. I know your brain is still recovering from JJ-shock.

Even if that was correct, Cessnas usually aren't flying over someones house.

Alright, calm down. I think we're still a few Sci-Fi movies away from armed drones, carrying live ordinance over people's houses as they deliver packages. The whole thing sounds like a corporate misinformation campaign directed at Amazon's competitors.
This all happened... more, or less.

I really don't see the drones being a success either (though I wish I could be wrong on that). I mean, if retail drones become commonplace, what's to stop malevolent people from mimicking them, filling a basket with explosives and sending it over a festival crowd? No one would realize it is not legit until too late.

Hate to say it, but I think that's also one, in a list of reasons, why flying cars are not going to be everywhere anytime soon.

If it's not carrying a package and is following you, it's the NSA!
