People who fire guns at drones are endangering the public and property and could be prosecuted or fined, the Federal Aviation Administration warned Friday.

The FAA released a statement in response to questions about an ordinance under consideration in the tiny farming community of Deer Trail, Colo., that would encourage hunters to shoot down drowns. The administration reminded the public that it regulates the nation’s airspace, including the airspace over cities and towns.

“I want to take a stand against the coming surveillance society that seems to be rushing in on us,” Phillip Steel, a resident in town who drafted the ordinance and submitted it for approval by the town board, told “Fox and Friends.”

Officials in the town admit they have never seen a drone plane on the Eastern Plains, but they want to make a statement that they think using unmanned surveillance planes to spy on people in the United States is wrong. They say the ordinance is mostly symbolic. They also recognize it’s against federal law to destroy federal property.
