Tiny Colorado Town To Vote on Allowing Drone Hunting! – Judge Approves Ballot Measure
Folks from all over the country will want to move here!
Fed up with what they believe is unnecessary government intrusions, and spurred on by the recent accounts of snooping by the NSA, a judge will allow the people of Deer Trail to vote whether to approve an ordinance that would allow people to hunt and shoot down surveillance drones!
The town has about 500 people, and 370 are legally registered voters. Phil Steele, who was the author of the ordinance, believes it will pass. The judge rejected a legal challenge last week that the town's clerk was biased in approving the petition that Steele presented to town leaders, clearing the way for the April 1st 2014 vote.
The clerk, Kim Oldfield, didn't elaborate her position, but says shes in favor of "defending the Constitution." According to Fox News:
" Under the guidelines of the ordinance, any registered drone hunter would be given $100 if he presents "identifiable parts of an unmanned aerial vehicle whose markings and configuration are consistent with those used on any similar craft known to be owned or operated by the United States federal government."
Steele says the license would cost $25 dollars annually.
