I edited a post for Selectively Social about anti-drone measures and thought this one looked awesome.
DroneGun tactical drone jammer: by DroneShield.
Unfortunately even if we could afford it the feds prevent us from owning one.
DroneGun has not been authorized as required by the United States Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”). This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, in the United States, other than to the United States government and its agencies, until such authorization is obtained. The use of DroneGun in the United States by other persons or entities, including state or local government agencies, is prohibited by federal law. Laws limiting the availability of DroneGun to certain types of users may apply in other jurisdictions, and any sales will be conducted only in compliance with the applicable laws.
The company is obviously geared towards government contracts, which is good because the bad guys can buy drones online that can carry enough of a payload of explosives, incendiaries or toxic gas to be dangerous to any group anywhere. Or in the case of everybody’s favorite uncle, enough spy equipment to keep track of anyone, including you and me.
–It’s sad that a statement like that is no longer paranoia.–
Oh well. It still looks uber-cool, and like the man said:
“It would give a more hands on, visceral feel. Kind of like using a rifle to take them down, but without all those cops yelling and screaming about firing a weapon inside the city limits.”
Now you know what to get me for my birthday. 😉
