1AC Contention 1 is Inherency: Drone use by law enforcement agencies is proliferating under a regulatory patchwork that merely governs safety concerns – mass surveillance is inevitable without overarching federal reforms. O’Brien, 2013 (Jennifer, Editor of Journal of Information Technology and Privacy Law, “WARRANTLESS GOVERNMENT DRONE SURVEILLANCE: A CHALLENGE TO THE FOURTH AMENDMENT,” The John Marshall Journal of Information Technology & Privacy Law , 30:1, Online: ) The United States is not the only country to recognize the potential of drones and multiple counties now use the small unmanned aircraft in agriculture,54 scientific research,55 and industrial maintenance.56 However, currently the largest use of unmanned aircraft is by the United States military.57 The United States military has been exponentially utilizing drone technology for various conflicts.58 Drone use has not been limited to military operations overseas and since 2005 the Customs and Border Protection Agency (“CBP”) has used drones for surveillance along both the Mexican and Canadian borders .59 Unarmed drones have also joined the fight against Mexican drug cartels.60 The next transition for drone technology will be public use by law enforcement. 61 Drones are increasingly being used in a vast array of civilian and governmental situations.62 An example of a future law enforcement drone is AeroVironment’s “Qube,” already advertised as “targeting the needs of first responders.”63 Among the highlighted features of the Qube is its size,64 mobility,65 and advanced technology.66 Smaller drones, like the Qube, will cost significantly less than current police helicopters.67 In response to the growing interest in domestic drones, a need for the development of regulatory standards has been recognized .68 Since 1958 the FAA has been charged with ensuring the safe and efficient operation of aircraft in national airspace.69 Therefore, the FAA will regulate the operation of domestic drones since drones will be flown in the national airspace.
