The Department of Homeland Security has an unmanned drone fleet with technology that can root out civilians who are carrying guns, government documents show.
“I am very concerned that this technology will be used against law-abiding American firearms owners,” said Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, in a Breitbart report. “This could violate Fourth Amendment rights as well as Second Amendment rights.”
The Predator B drone fleet has also been designed to track cell-phone signals, Breitbart reports.
The information about the fleet came to light via a Freedom of Information request from the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Breitbart said. The documents were partially redacted, but CNET found a copy that included all the text.
