Yeah... I really don't think these should be in use here. But, right now 97% of the country is so pants-wettingly scared over two guys who had access to an RC car, Bass Pro Shops and a Home Goods store that they'll probably beg the government to fly these drones 24/7 over their snowflakes.

 subby didnt even read his own article,

Once the legislation is enacted, Florida will join Idaho and Virginia as the few states that have approved laws to limit drone use,

The University of Tennessee is already using a drone similar to the one shown in the article for making videos of football practice. I doubt UF is going to allow UT to create a drone gap. Look for the Florida legislature to amend the law so their football teams don't get left behind.

/Seriously

Not to worry just because there is a law dose not mean Florida won't fark around with them.

Great. The CA legislation is full of legal loopholes which do only one single thing: make it illegal for private citizens to send up drone-killers of their own. Welcome to the Miltary Federation of Kalifornia.

Because Florida is known for lawful conduct....right?

Define "Florida regulation". From the other side of the continent, to me, Florida looks like one big HOA. A dandelion on the front lawn will get you jail time. Can't wait to see the list of Constitutional violations these regulations will generate. Also, will the drones be slow, in the left lane, with turns signal always on? How will the drone "pilots" be able to see the video monitors over the keyboard?

Drones?

Ok, fine to keep the police from forgetting about your privacy. How about restricting private people from surveiling you at all?

Wait for it,,,
"It is not illegal drone usage when we use our drones."

Only illegal is your drones, not for you. Just me and mine.
Move along.
All yer drones are belong to us.

We can add that to the "free unicorns for everybody" bill.

Do you seriously not see the unintended consequences of what you are suggesting?
