If we are thinking of computers making a decision then we will always end up with a view of Asimovs rules of robotics.

I don't have a lot of time today, but I want to get started on this new thought....
The gun ownership argument is now moving in the direction of armed robots. David Hogg is now bringing up the idea that a teacher could not possibly save kids from a school shooter. His reasoning is based on the idea that an armed deputy could not even save students from the shooter. Some say the first responders were told to not engage, but now we are being led to believe that there was a lack of desire to engage the scary enemy. If nobody has the guts to run in and defeat a shooter then what are we to do?! Get a robot with a gun. The robot has no fear. The robot will kill on command. Forget the idea that human soldiers exist -- the kids are being programmed to not even want a gun. The kids are being programmed to stand down to the greater force coming to enslave them. And that force will have robots on the front line which is everywhere and most importantly at this time in the school hallways. Robots in the schools ready to crack down with no fear and no hesitation at all. The kids are being led by their emotional response into a robot patrolled prison.
Then armed robots in the grocery store. The mall. On the sidewalk. At the crosswalk. In your country club neighborhood.
