Quijano, Benson, Chiaravalloti Bill to Create New Crime for Operating a Drone Equipped with a Weapon Clears Assembly Panel

Armed drones can now be successfully built by civilians. In an effort to deter the construction and flying of weapon-equipped drones, a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Annette Quijano, Daniel Benson and Nicholas Chiaravalloti that would create a fourth degree crime was approved today by the Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee.

"The armed drone was a wake-up call for law enforcement," said Quijano (D-Union), the committee's chairperson. "Despite serious concerns for public safety, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told 'CBS This Morning' there appeared to be nothing illegal about it. That statement was a wake-up call for the legislature."
