This Gun-Fitted Drone Will Scare The Bejesus Out Of You

If the idea catches on in popular tech culture, it could wreak havoc and create some serious problems.

As if humans shooting guns at each other with their hands wasn't bad enough, now some wicked mind has invented a contraption that has a handgun attached to a drone camera.

A new YouTube video shows this flying gun in the woods firing shots via commands sent through wireless signals.

The firearm-fitted quadcopter rears back from the recoil every time a shot is fired, which is further proof that the deadly machine is genuine.

As per its maker's description, the drone is a "homemade multirotor with a semiautomatic handgun mounted on it" while its "length from the muzzle to the rear of the frame is over 26 [inches]."

Published on TheHogwit YouTube channel, the drone is the brainchild of a certain Austin Haughwout whose experimentation with drone technology has stirred up controversies before.

If he persists with his new invention, Haughwout could find himself in trouble with the law once again as the Federal Aviation Administration doesn't allow weapons carried for usage on a civil aircraft.

Let's hope he abandons this project because if not, the potential damage it could do is unimaginable.
