Shooting down delivery drones—what could possibly go wrong? Imagine a world where your impulse to play target practice with a flying box could result in legal headaches. It's not just about the thrill of seeing a drone plummet; it’s about understanding the intricate web of consequences, from property damage to federal offenses. Clearly, this isn't just a pastime for bored suburbanites with a new pellet gun.

Who knew that a sky-bound Amazon package could lead to such delightful legal entanglements?

Instead, you might find yourself in hot water with the FAA, who tend to get a bit touchy about unmanned aircraft incidents.
