Problems of Military Drones The United States’ battle against terrorism forces this nation to exert violence upon its enemies. However, peace in foreign countries will not be achieved if America risks the lives of innocent civilians to assassinate its criminals overseas. Therefore, America must eliminate the use of drones in international strikes. Those in support of using drones conclude that they bring the least consequences to this nation. They will say that using drones for global attacks allows the US to reduce its military damage and protect its troops from danger (Foust).
How many laws are there regarding the drones? According to Robert Molko in "The Drones Are Coming! Will the Fourth Amendment Stop Their Threat to Our Privacy?” the answer is hardly any (2013 p.1283). With the minimal amount of laws that are currently in place, the government has full reign on where to fly the drones, how to collect the data they record, and what to do with the colle... ... middle of paper ... ...an citizen’s rights a few changes should be made and enforced by different agencies.

Introduction Nowadays, the unmanned aerial vehicle is being more and more widely used in social life since its first application in commercial field. Many people are concerned about their safety and privacy being invaded by drones. So far, there is no strict limitation or law over unmanned aircraft. Some people think it necessary, but others do not. This essay will look on the different opinions over whether the government ought to limit UAV of commercial use more, and give out the conclusion.
Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi plans to develop operational protocols and procedures according to FAA’s safety requirements. Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University will evaluate operational and technical risk areas. They will conduct UAV’s failure mode. U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, chairman of a Senate Judiciary Committee said on March 21, 2013, that he is convinced that the domestic use of drones to conduct surveillance and collect other information will have a broad and significant impact on the everyday lives of millions of Americans.
Drones can come in all shapes and sizes; the smallest is the size of a hummingbird and the largest being slightly smaller than a private jet.

Because of the group’s advocacy for proper restrictions in order to ensure privacy from drones many States have created some form of legislature that is similar to the outlines provided. These bills will relate to the final restrictions the FAA put in place for both private and public drone sectors. UAVs are potentially extremely powerful surveillance tools, and that power, like all government power, needs to be subject to checks and balances.
While we have been using drones since 1964, as the technology becomes more advanced the way we used this new technology became more advanced. Since 2000 the CIA has been sending off unarmed UAVs to fly over Afghanistan and after the attack on the world trade center on September 11th those flybys became armed UAVs. Even when the drones were armed they did not do much attacking, they were more as a precautionary measure as any other plane flying over a country would be.

The Post Office set up aircraft inspection schedules and preventive maintenance programs for the pilots to have a safe airplane to fly. These early regulatory requirements improved air carrier safety. During the infancy of aviation no federal safety program existed. Some states passed legislation that required aircraft licensing and registration. Local governments passed ordinances that regulated flight operations and pilots.
The bill requires the FAA to maintain a records data base only for hiring purposes. Information in the data base should include the pilot’s license, medical certificates, aircraft ratings, check rides, notices of disapproval, and other flight proficiency tests, and state motor veh... ... middle of paper ... ...February 2).

In the very near future drones will fill up the skies. According to the FAA “Congress has ordered the FAA to overhaul regulations and to open the skies to private drones by 2015” (FAA, 2013). According to the FAA they released a statement on December 30, 2013 with plans to integrate unmanned aircraft systems (FAA). This will be the largest, most complex air traffic system in the world consisting of 18,000 airports, 750 air traffic control facilities, and 4,500 air navigation facilities. The FAA decided to select six test sites to do research and development to ensure a safe integration in the airspace.
