The City of Buffalo has a chance to be the first in the country to ban Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, also known as drones.
A group of activists and community leaders came to City Hall on Tuesday to have their say in front of the Common Council Legislation Committee.
"You guys have an opportunity to make Buffalo the first drone-free city in the United States, and I hope you take that seriously," John Washington of Occupy Buffalo told lawmakers.
