    Best way to stop a bad man with an armed drone is with a good man with an armed drone.

    Rat is going to cause World War 3 with that business.

    This whole storyline is bogus. The Pentagon has no “surplus” drones, On the contrary, the supply is short. Rat must be daydreaming the entire sequence….It is thought-provoking, though. You are always provocative, Cartoon-Boy!

    Heck, if I can’t get me a drone, I’ll settle for one of them there nukes. It’s my constitutional right!

    I’m surprised somebody didn’t threaten Fred with a drone if he kept smoking.

    I’m not too worried. I’m sure they’re all covered by the famous Rat warranty.

    Wonderful parody of the gun insanity here in America.

    I want a drone for self defense, hover over my property programmed to stay in my property and shoots trespassers without the proper electronic device to show they are friendly. No reason that civilians can’t have a drone for self defense.

    A bad drone owner will go out and kill people in a non self defense way, a good drone owner will not do that. Plus I could go out and have mine stay around me to defend me from other drones that try to attack me.

    The problem isn’t the drones its the bad people who use them for bad things, we should outlaw bad people doing bad things…oh wait we already have.

    A society armed with drones is not apparently a polite society, a conclusion one could have come to by studying societies with guns…

    I do need to make a slightly political comment here (you been warned).The whole premise of the cartoon, and many of the comments, is that the human animal is too stupid and brutish to be trusted with things like drones. Or guns. Or knives, for that matter, considering the stabbing that happened in France yesterday.Yet, for some mysterious reason, when that human animal is elected to political office, somehow now everything is OK.My point is, if you’re going to trust Uncle Sam with a drone, then you pretty much are going to have to trust your neighbor with one. Because at the end of the day, both are human animals with the same strengths and weaknesses.Not to mention, your odds of taking drones away from Uncle Sam or your neighbor are virtually null and void. Ain’t gonna happen.So you might as well quit kvetching about it and get your own.

    I know this is considered a ‘comic’ However, I would laugh but it’s not really funny…just ironically sad.When the day comes that everyone is armed with something, who will shoot first and who will be the last man on earth. I want no part of either!
