Drone 18 stories up

I missed tonight's Brighton-Allston Improvement Association meeting (for another meeting at which I was fed pizza for free - by law, reporters cannot turn down meetings with free food). And that was a shame, because, a little birdie informs us, a concerned citizen reported a problem with a drone flying near the house and sought advice from the D-14 community service officer: Would it be OK to get a gun and shoot the drone down?

BPD after carefully reviewing the laws assured us.....you CANNOT shoot down a drone with a firearm in Boston.
