Six months after it was originally proposed, a judge ruled today that the town of Deer Trail, Colorado can vote on drone-hunting permits.
A judge ruled Tuesday that a petition drive to put a proposal to issue drone-hunting permits to a vote was legal, Denver TV station KUSA reported, setting the stage for a special election to decide the issue.
The town’s mayor left little to the imagination, explaining that his goal is to make money by selling permits to idiots.
“I’d really like to see this go through,” Fields said, as quoted by KUSA. “For the, you know, benefit of the town, make a little extra income.”
Sure. If we’re going to give people permission to fire their weapons in the air because that bird resembled a low-flying drone for a brief moment, we should at least try to make money off of it.
