Video: DARPA Stair-Climbing Robot Gets Arms

All the descriptions I’ve seen of the Robotics Challenge, and the robots DARPA is encouraging engineers to develop, emphasize rescue robots, doing things like driving a truck, putting out fires, or carrying wounded people away from fallen buildings. I keep wondering, though, what’s to prevent the agency from teaching these autonomous robots, which make their own decisions, to use guns? And would that in any way be a good thing?
