A Gun That Can Take Control Of A Drone From 1.2 Miles Away

This is DroneShield's DroneGun, a 13-pound rifle that can jam the GPS and Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) signals used to operate a drone from as far as 1.2 miles. For reference, that's further than two footballs fields. As a matter of fact, that's further than 15.6 more football fields than two football fields. I'm great at making clear and concise references. Like other similar guns (previously: this one), the gun doesn't destroy the drone the way the missile launcher I plan to use will, instead it either forces the drone to land, or return to its starting location, which can be used to track down its operator. What you do to its operator once you find them is up to you, but I suggest starting slow with some strong words and fist waving. Remember: you can always release the hornets later, but it's almost impossible to get them back in the jar once you do.

Keep going for a video demonstration.

Thanks to Mikel, who agrees the easiest way to disable a drone is use your weather controlling superpowers to smack it with a bolt of lightning.
