Robots and Guns

Technorati Profile

With all the worries about a rogue government, we've comforted ourselves with the notion that we can be armed and besides, no true American would gun down his fellow citizen. Or if they would, at least you'd have the satisfaction of taking out a few of the bastards before they napalmed you.

Unfortunately, there may not even be that slight hint of upright manly glory, if indeed robots get good enough to be networked together to comb an area, using data from a high flying drone. Given how cheaply extremely complicated machines are made these day, a cheap functional, m14 carrying robot may be patrolling your neighborhood soon. Appealing to its patriotism just won't work.  Are assembly lines already making these?
