“The American Conservative Union commends the Virginia General Assembly for passing legislation that would place a two year moratorium on the use of drones by local police and governments and urges states all over the country to follow suit.
We must ensure that, as new technology develops, our protections of Americans’ privacy advance equally. In many cases, aerial surveillance is being conducted without search warrants and with no safeguards in place to restrict the use of information gained from that surveillance.
