A drone can carry the weapon for you and you can be a half mile away. With nothing to ID who's, where's and whats, you can get away with it.
I'm sure that like any other crime, you can get away with things so long as you don't present an easy target or escalate the crimes, but also like other crimes, if you do, you will not get away with it for long. Unless they are white collar crimes of course.

Let's take a for instance, like transporting guns over the southern border from the US from to Mexico. A group might be lucky enough to get away with it a few times, but drones are not invisible, especially not the ones big enough to carry even just a hand gun. They produce heat, they use infrared to see, both are things that can be seen by equipment that the US border patrol has. They would be able to see where the drones came from and went to with just a little bit of watching. They would be better off using the tunnel/carry/vehicle methods they are currently using than to try using drones because the drones would be easier to thwart.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
