Colorado town to vote on shooting down drones

A Colorado town is about to vote on an ordinance that would make it legal for residents to shoot down government drones.

The outcome is expected to be extremely close. It's a vote that's dividing a tight-knit community, and raising serious questions about just how much government Americans want in their lives.

Ana Cabrera has the story.

    dividing a close knit town?.......really?...is it a town made up solely of 8 year olds??......first of all, the chances of actually hitting one of those things are slim to none so to stand around firing rounds into the air is both dangerous AND stupid.....second of all, do these folks think they are so important that the US Government has drones watching them??......chances are, if the Government is so interested in you that they will go through the trouble of droning you...there is a reason for it........3rd of all.......wouldnt it be a federal crime to shoot at a United States military air craft....a very serious federal crime??.......all of this sounds so silly it caught my eye when you said a town divided......cant imagine American citizens voting on wether to shoot American aircraft.........
