Drones, Gun Control & Loss of Liberty
Just when it seemed like the government couldn’t possibly infringe on another one of our rights, the Department of Homeland Security ups the Ante, and orders a whole fleet of Spy Drones that can detect whether or not an American Citizen is armed.
In a report from CNET, the organization has learned that the Department of Homeland Security is in the process of building a whole new fleet of Predator B Drones that will be deployed throughout the United States. These new Drones, which are being built by San Diego-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, will be able to identify American that are armed, spy on cell phone conversations, and possibly even launch deadly attacks anywhere in America.
CNET, who uncovered a unredacted copy of the Department of Homeland Security’s drone requirements, is reporting that these new Domestic Spy Drones are being built with signal interception technology and the capability to identify people on the ground. They also found out that these Predator B Drones are being built to accept “targeting and weapons delivery” systems.
Why exactly does the Department of Homeland Security need drones that can monitor cell phone conversations and detect whether or not and American Citizen is armed? And why are these DOMESTIC drones being built with the ability to add on targeting and weapons delivery systems?
As we reported last week, The Obama administration is refusing to answer whether or not these types of drones will be used to target American Citizens, on American Soil. In fact, Senator Rand Paul has sent three letters to the Obama Administrations CIA Nominee John Brennan, asking whether or not the Administration believes they have the power to use these drones against Americans. To date, no one in the Obama administration will answer that question.
So for those keeping score, we have a Department of Homeland Security who has:
- Ordered over 1.625 Billion rounds of Ammunition that some are saying is being stockpiled in case the American Public Rebels.
- Ordered a Fleet of Domestic Spy Drones that can be outfitted with Weapons Systems.
- Setup Internet Monitoring Systems to Monitor Americans on Social Media.
- Spent over $1.4 Billion Dollars to build Domestic Spy Facilities here in America.
So who is this threat that DHS is spending so much time, effort and money to spy on?
