Rep. Schiff Concerned By Amazon Drones (VIDEO)


Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on Sunday that he has concerns about the use of drones by companies like Amazon to deliver packages to consumers.

“That drone is going to need cameras on it to guide it,” Schiff said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think people are going to have real privacy problems.”

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, said last week that his company is looking into using delivery drones within the next five years.

Schiff added that he is worried that other countries could gain the capabiltity to deploy armed drones.

“I do have a grave concern that as drone technology proliferates many other countries are going to start employing it and employing it with lethal capabilities. And that’s a big problem,” he said.
