    Besides a low flyer getting shot down by my 12 gauge, What other way can we fight those evil privacy invaders? A radio jammer of sorts? A local told me of having one outside their window.
    I know it sounds crazy but I think some sort of strategy is in order.

    I have heard that a .308 works a trick at bringing down drones!

    To be effective you need know the Frequency being used by the Control Link... Many Drones use the 2.4 Ghz WiFi Band but there ARE others being used... Another thing, ANY Jammer is Highly illegal in the USA to operate...I think if I were going design a Control Link for a wide Ranging Drone, I would put it on a Cellphone System, where Signal Strengths were allways good, and not easily sleuthed out. even with a Spectrum Analyzer... Knd of a “Hide in plain Sight” deal... Then put the Video Link in the 5.0 WiFi Band... where a small dish on the receiving end gets you tons of Antenna Gain and lo w power consumption on the Tx side....

    Never shoot at a drone with a rifle. The bullet has to come down somewhere, and it's a good way to kill someone by accident.

    That's the kind of "accident"/ negligent homicide that can get you a long stretch in the Greybar Hotel.

    It's better to fight flyer with flyer.

    Get your own drone and do the hunter-killer thing.

    Just rig your drone to deploy a yard or so of light netting like a banner, and then strafe the other drone with it. As soon as the net touches the other drone, its props will get entangled.

    Then you just fly your drone back with its helpless prey dangling.

    Dissect it, and maybe you can find the owner. Or just add it to your air fleet.

    An alternative strategy is to use your drone to follow the other drone back to its operator. Then photograph the perp, his license tag, mailbox, or whatever.

    last resort, and most fun, is to drop a Molotov cocktail on his car...

    Wait. I didn't say that. A flying monkey said that.

    (Yeah, there's the ticket! A flying monkey. And there was this green chick, Yeah.)

    Use a shotgun with large birdshot #4 under 60 yds should get the job done. Elevation angle of shotgun in urban area should exceed 45 degrees or more so that falling shot does little or no damage. I have had pounds of this size shot rain down on me when hunting ducks and geese in a crowded hunting area. I suppose you could get an eye put out or get lead poisoning if you were turkey gazing with a bare head, no eye protection, and mouth a gape, staring into the heavens.

    find the remote operator and take away their controller. It's got to go home sometime.

    12kw cavity magntron array.
    Likely very illegal.

    In all seriousness: I've been toying with the problem of exactly how could I usurp control of drones, private or LEO. Now the frequency ranges used are all public knowledge, but the devices themselves are frequency agile, usually encrypted, and flat out jamming, while eminently feasible is, as others have noted, somewhat frowned upon by the FCC. So then it comes down to intercepting and capturing the control loop between the operator and the flyer. I do like the idea of a 12kw maggie pressed firmly against the operators skull, but there might be complications.

    Why not a directional microwave emitter, or cannon?

    Replaced with the more effective (and larger)
    MASER cannon

    Fly the drones directly over top of a big group of what ever they are and let them take each other out with their own rocks.
