Sad news from the northwest. It sounds like it may become a Class B Misdemeanor to simply own a drone capable of video or photo, and a Class A to fly it.
Check out the story.

If this is true... hobbyists should turn to pot instead, I am sure the Oregon state senate is smoking it...
wouuu :( sooo stupid
Perhaps shooting photos from a roof or building taller than 1 story should be banned as well?
Anyway, I'm sure Boeing is glad it's located in Washing and not Oregon.
If you blank out the word "drone" and words related to flying in the document it almost sounds like they're talking about some sort of weapon.
Should the legislators not be worrying about creating more jobs rather than punitive and silly rules like this?
It's illegal to pump your own gas in Oregon sooooo this makes sense.
There is some 4th amendment case history on this but in my reading it seems this is related more about what public police agencies can do with observation from the air, and less about what private citizens (both commercial and hobbyists) can observe form the air. So for Oregon to propose (or any other fed/state/local gov't) this is new territory, and I think the end game is the US Supreme Court.
The question is really about the expectation of privacy from the air and is there such a thing as aerial curtilage.
A state with virtually no gun control outlaws drones.
Solution buy guns instead, I'm sure you can find a good use for them.
