The decision to take action and fire will still be made by a human, presumably someone in law enforcement. So while it's a bigger gun with a longer reach, it is still a lawman with a gun.

So again, if the police see someone that they reasonably believe is about to commit murder, and could stop it by shooting, should they? Or should they wait until the murder has been committed and just arrest them? Is this any different?
I do understand that these drones are manned by a person remotely. What I don't understand is what kind of situation would arise that this type of weapon could be used against American citizens.
From the way I understand it is we are protected by the constitution.

Not worried about dying it is the fact that what they are suggestin is that if the need arises this is how they intend too take care of he problem.
