Do you remember the Colorado man named Phillip Steel?

Steel lives in the small central Colorado town of Deer Trail and earlier this year he drafted a proposal to approve hunting licenses and bounties for shooting down drones.

The proposal is meant to be a symbolic protest against surveillance, according to an August Associated Press article.

Still, Amazon, you’ve been warned. Amazon announced earlier this week that it’s working on a way to use the small aircraft to get parcels to customers in 30 minutes.

Good luck with that, I imagine Steel saying.

Steel told the National Journal that he would grab his shotgun and shoot the drone down, ordinance or not.

“I will shoot it down and go to jail with a smile over my face,” he said.

The measure will allow Deer Trail citizens to purchase $25 drone-hunting licenses and receive $100 for a drone bounty, according to the National Journal.

I think I’m moving to Deer Trail to hang out with Mr. Steel. I will bring my video camera.
