"Quite aside from the ethics of the situation (to which politicians are immune anyway), I'd suggest that the overwhelming primary reason not to arm robots is that you cannot guarantee you won't be the target."

Only one problem: what you say about robots can be said about humans, too! It's a dilemma: you need a means to defend yourself, but what's to stop the means of defending yourself being used to usurp you instead?
