Senator Feinstein: Regulate Drones

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Cal), in an interview with 60 Minutes, said that during a protest outside her house, she looked out her window to see a drone "facing" her.  Apparently as a result of this incident, she is in favor of regulating these devices.  In the interview, she asked:
“When is a drone picture a benefit to society? When does it become stalking? When does it invade privacy? How close to a home can a drone go?” Feinstein said, listing questions she would like to see answered in the complex regulation process.
I would say that these concerns are valid, both for privately owned drones and for those used by the government.  Since the Senator desires some regulations, I think I can offer one.  If a drone enters private property with neither the permission of the owner nor a warrant, then subject to local laws, it should be made available for target practice.  No matter what you think, read the full story at Politico.
