SC House Has UNANIMOUSLY passed Legislation to BAN DRONES. H3514 is now in the SENATE Senate Judiciary Committee
H3514 was introduced in 2013 by Representatives Hamilton (R), Delleney (R), Taylor (R), Putnam (R) and Loftis (R).
According to the bill, “Each petition for a search warrant from a judicial officer to permit the use of a public unmanned aircraft system and personal information collected from the operation must be made in writing, upon oath or affirmation, to a judicial officer in a court of competent jurisdiction for the circuit in which a public unmanned aircraft system is to be operated or where there is probable cause to believe the offense for which the public unmanned aircraft system is sought has been committed, is being committed, or will be committed.”
Rep. Dan Hamilton (R-Taylors) told South Carolina Radio Network, “We’re really just updating our laws to keep up with some of the technology. The technology is changing rapidly. A lot of these companies that have sold them for use overseas are now marketing them domestically. I think, before things get out of hand, that we put a box around it and make they’re being used in the way they should be.”
While the bill does allow for the use of drones, the guidelines are very strict. You can read the bill here. The bill also prevent any kind of weapon from being mounted on a drone and it also prevents law enforcement from retaining any personal information obtained by the drone that was not relevant to the investigation it was being used for.
South Carolina’s legislation is based on the model legislation from the Tenth Amendment Center.

The SC Senate also has a similar bill:
Abortionists call it “choice”. Stalin called it “purge”. CIA calls it “sanction”.
We would have thought it would have been a simple thing to get Obama to promise that he would not kill Americans never convicted of any crime. In the end Brennan was confirmed. He was not sworn in with his hand on the Bible; nor the Koran. He was sworn in with his hand on a copy of the Constitution that did NOT include the Bill of Rights.
If we allow the president to order any person’s death without any due process we have accepted tyranny.
“We were just obeying orders” was the common excuse at Nuremberg. How did that work? Here is a video to help us remember:
Terrorism provides the EXCUSE FOR TYRANNY. Read the article “FEDS ARMING FOR WAR WITH WHO?”
No part of Bill of Rights is still honored. Google NDAA & Indefinite Detention. Guns are being outlawed. Searches without warrants, checkpoints, wiretaps, government surveillance of financial records, medical records, emails, internet ETC. Cameras everywhere. Confiscatory taxation, civil forfeiture. Feds just bought 2.2 Billion rounds of HOLLOW POINT AMMO & 30000 Predator drones. This ammo is illegal to use in military. The only possible use is domestic, against Americans.

Thomas Jefferson said:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
We add this:
“The battle for liberty is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back.
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty.” John Perna

The National Security Agency is the only part of the government that actually LISTENS to you. Do you wish that the government would read the Constitution? Just email it privately to your friends. What we formerly called “freedom of speech” we now call the “right to remain silent.” BUT they will now claim that you DO NOT HAVE the right to remain silent… if THEY are asking the questions.
The Patriot Act is constitutionally illegal, but was signed into law takes away your rights and turns them into privileges, which the government can grant or take away at will. If you remember we were told that this would just be temporary. Now it has been made permanent. But no one protested did they?
