New guidelines allows U.S. military to shoot down consumer drones.

If your drone gets somewhat near a u.  s. military base, they are formally not gonna worry regarding blasting it to bits. Pentagon advocator Jeff Davis relayed that piece of knowledge to reporters on weekday, tho' the policy has been on the books since July, consistent with Military Times.

If a base feels vulnerable by a drone, the new policy permits them to trace it, capture it, obliterate it, or otherwise disable it.

The bases “retain the proper of self-protection once it involves UAVs or drones" operative over them, Davis said. “The new steerage will afford of the flexibility to require action to prevent these threats which includes disabling, destroying and tracking.”

The policy would affect 133 military installations, Military Times reports.

There's reportedly no blanket policy about what to do every time a drone gets within, say, 100 meters of a base or something like that, and bases will deal with drones on an individual, case-by-case basis.

It's probably a good idea to keep this in mind if you're one of those people who likes to try to sneak their drones around "forbidden" places to snap a few photos.
