Makes me wonder... what's the legal stance on shooting down a drone that's flying over your own property?

There is the basic problem with firing any gun into the air. Even if the bullet or shotgun pellets hit the drone, no drone is substantial enough to stop such so the fired ammo likely will land somewhere other than your property (even if you fire straight up since the impact with the drone likely will unpredictably deflect the path).

What about using something like a net launcher to ensnare it without endangering other persons? I mean... If someone was flying a drone over my property, could i use some means to knock it out of the sky?

It's a pun: "foulard" is French for "silk scarf", but "fou lard" could be translated as "crazy bacon".

"What’s a Dad to Do When His Daughter Wants to Dress as Han Solo?"

Image

I’ll admit—my take on Princess Leia Organa isn’t 100% flattering to Carrie Fisher, but, you know, I made due with what I had. I found an incredibly cool Princess Leia hoodie at HerUniverse.com that came with the trademark Leia hair buns on the hood, which made it hard to resist. The skirt is a Red Cross nurse’s skirt from a local uniform store. And the thermal underwear and crappy sneakers? Well, it’s Michigan and it was cold and we were going to an event at the local zoo, so, yeah, I dropped the ball on that one. I need to find some better Leia boots for actual Halloween.

Screw it. Only use 40mm Orlikons, or 7.62 Vulcans.
