The Drone Hunter

A camera-equipped drone hovers above your house as you’re grilling in the backyard. So you aim your shotgun, pull the trigger a few times, and just like that, there’s no longer a drone hovering above your house. Were you acting within your rights? That part of the story is less straightforward and is the key question of a case that could be the first of many, as our laws struggle to keep up with our technological innovations. (Maybe if you’re an Amazon Prime member, your delivery drone shoots back.) From WaPo: You may be powerless to stop a drone from hovering over your own yard.
