Lawmakers in 43 states have proposed regulations on how unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can operate, and 9 states have passed bills. While theres bipartisan support for these rules, and the drone has come to stand for overreaching government surveillance across the political spectrum, its become particularly symbolic for libertarians and conservatives in wide-open states like Colorado, Montana, and North Dakota, where a man was arrested with help from a Predator drone in 2012. A recent (and very effective) ad from Republican Congressional candidate Matt Rosendale, currently a Montana state senator, perfectly captures the rhetoric around them. This is how I look from a government drone, says Rosendale over aerial footage with a drone user interface.
