Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, is not worried about the new Amazon drones revealed by CEO Jeff Bezos as the future for package delivery.

Paul explained to "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace that he wasn't against technology or unmanned airplanes, but suggested that there might be air traffic control problems as a result.

His concern, he said, was more about government and private companies using drones for surveillance of private citizens.

"There has to be a sort of extension of your privacy, not only your house, but your yard and the things that you do that really people shouldn't be able to observe all the time," Paul explained. "So there will be have to rules on private entities but really most particularly I'm worried about the government looking at our actions."
