The issue is whether [18 U.S.C.] § 32(a)(1) covers shooting down a drone or whether that statute is best understood as applying solely to the destruction of manned aircraft. Section 32(a)(1) makes it a crime punishable by up to twenty years in prison to willfully destroy “any aircraft in the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States or any civil aircraft used, operated, or employed in [commerce subject to federal regulation].”The Post's correspondent continues his line and states, "In any case, it seems unlikely that federal prosecutors will get involved here."
I don't know....what if it was a black drone? Had he considered that?
