drone flying in treesA former Navy ship commander shares the concerns of Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R) about "nosy little drones."

Biggs, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, recently introduced the "Buzz Off Act" to stop federal law enforcement agencies from using drones to surveil and target Americans, as he says it is a violation of constitutional rights. Biggs points out that the Chinese and Spanish governments have already been using drones to enforce stay-at-home orders, and some state and local governments in the United States have also utilized drones to help enforce lockdowns.

In a statement on the matter, Biggs says, "I won't let our nation be transformed into a police state, nor will I sit idly by and let a soulless machine tell me how to live my life. These nosy little drones need to buzz off!"

Lippold

"I think that in many ways some of the issues regarding drones in any use by a government entity, whether it is at the city, county, state, or federal level, there are a lot of Fourth Amendment constitutional issues that remain unresolved with that,” comments retired Navy Commander Kirk Lippold. "For unreasonable search and seizure, it is a violation of privacy."

And Lippold is alarmed that many of these drones were made in China. 

"The fact that it is a communist dictatorship and that they are engaging in activities that are undermining our future, I think we should slowly begin to disentangle ourselves from Chinese interests," he concludes.
