I'm Canadian, and fall about where you would expect on the "right to bear arms" (in general guns are bad because they kill people), but the thought of a drone hovering over my house and yard is highly offensive.
It invades privacy, my sense of well-being, and my gut instinct would be to classify it as a threat towards my children and family.
It's a threat because I don't know the intent behind the drone. Is someone using it to surveille my house or family, take voyeuristic pictures or images of my children, or is it just some idiot who doesn't understand how his or her actions could be interpreted?
Based on the article, I actually have a fair bit of sympathy for Mr. Merideth.at.
