A spectacular (and loud) YouTube video showing a drone rigged with a handgun actually firing bullets freaked out a lot of folks last year. In response, several states have passed legislation outlawing such weaponized drones. In 2008, the Supreme Court affirmed in its decision in District of Columbia v. Heller that "the Second Amendment protects a personal right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes, most notably for self-defense within the home." So does the Second Amendment protect the right of Americans to have and use armed drones for self-defense?
A friend asked me about hunting because she wanted to provide her son with wild game to eat. She had chosen to raise her child in Alaska so they both would have opportunities to spend time outdoors, connect to the natural world and "hunt and fish."
