|Martial Law is when the military takes over governmental functions, with an aim at restoring stability and tranquility. Even so, it hasn't always been used that way. A number of times, martial law has been declared as a means of controlling the population and preventing uprising. Used in this way, there really isn’t much difference between a dictator using it and a democratic government using it. In either case, people's liberties are stripped and their lives are controlled by government agents. It's a term that strikes both fear and anger into the hearts of those of us who love our freedom; anger that the government would use their power to steal our freedom and fear that it could very well happen and happen soon. No true freedom loving patriot likes the idea of the government invoking martial law and many have suspicions that it might just happen; even that it could happen for unjust gain by politicians.|
Drones can be useful to monitor your property for hazards, planning or trespassers but they can also be used against you to violate your peace and privacy rights. An FAA License is required to fly a drone (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) over property that is not yours. But a license is not required to shoot one out of the sky. And it's not difficult; they are very fragile and nearly any projectile will take them out.
Things to consider before shooting them out of the sky:
- The delivery method should not be traced back from the projectile (slingshot, BB/Pellet gun, shotgun)
- Use a projectile that, when descending* back to earth is not likely to cause harm to others (BB, pellet, birdshot)
- Avoid identification on [the drone] camera^ (wear a disguise, stay out-of-sight and away from your address)
* Be aware of what is behind your target
^ Unless remote recording is used, capturing the drone means you can capture the on-board video (SD) card.
Tips to break away from a mob/riot/looting situation
Crowd Management, Intervention and Control: Most riot participants are followers, not leaders. One of the first things police do in a riotous crowd situation is to identify and eliminate the "leaders". Once the "leaders" are visually elimated from the crowd, the followers usually disperse. Understand that there are organized radical, domestic terriorist groups (Antifa) whose sole purpose is to incite violence. Peaceful protestors should assist law enforcement to identify these terrorists to help disrupt the violence and retore peaceful protests.
