“Sen. Dianne Feinstein called for regulation on drones use Thursday saying that the tool was the “perfect assassination weapon.”
“In some respects it’s a perfect assassination weapon. It can see from 17,000 to 20,000 feet up in the air, it is very precise, it can knock out a room in a building if it’s armed, it’s a very dangerous weapon. Right now we have a problem, there are all these nations that want to buy these armed drones. I’m strongly opposed to that,” Feinstein, (D-Calif.), who is the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee told MSNBC’S Chris Matthews.
Feinstein said that without regulation, it could be quite possible someday to see drones “hovering over the homes of Hollywood luminaries, violating [their] privacy.” She called it a “work in progress” and said that the Intelligence Committee is trying to draft legislation.
