Re: I wonder if...

Why use shotguns? Can't we find the control signal and use a radio guided missile? No controll signals should me the drone will auto-land. And people who've been blown up don't tend to re-offend.

No, no, a thousand times no.

Worried about a 10 gram bullet, but willing to let 10 kg chunks of missile rain down?

Or maybe even an entire missile with a high explosive warhead?

That risk is acceptable in wartime against someone trying to kill you, when civilian collateral casualties are less important than force protection... not in the middle of your own city in peacetime.
