Here is a drone.

The definition of the word drone is an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate by   itself beyond the line of sight. Does that really sound very safe? Drones can be fun but they are also dangerous so we need to control their use. Drones were built for fun not safety! They are dangerous, they can cause dangerous problems, and the government doesn’t have a way to keep track of all the drones.

One reason we should ban drones is that drones are actually very dangerous. If a drone hits you it could send you to the hospital, or even kill you! There have been many drone caused accidents and here are a couple. Once a man was killed in Brooklyn when a drone hit him. another time a toddler was hit with wreckage when a man crashed his drone. Once a drone even crashed on the lawn of the white house.

The next reason that we should ban drones is that drones can cause lots of dangerous problems. If a drone hits a electricity line it could cause blackouts. Some drones also get in a plane’s path and could get hit. This is both a waste of a perfectly good drone and a hazard for the plane and passengers.

The last reason is that the government can’t keep track of who has a drone and who doesn’t. If someone flies their drone over private property their drone could get shot down and the owner could even get sued. An example of this was that once a man shot down a $18,000 drone that was flying over his property with a shotgun.

Even though drones are not very safe they are lots of fun. They can also be useful, police officers can use drones for surveillance or to spy on somebody. And just think about it wouldn’t it be cool to use the camera to fly around and just look. This was what other people thought until drones started causing trouble. As long as people fly drones they will always be a problem.
