Yup, there's no way to regulate robots since they can only be programmed to follow laws. So, you have to rely on all programmers being ethical programmers... and we know that's not going to happen. Interesting times. And, when the robot can reprogram itself... all bets are off.
Argueably, Asimov's 3 laws will be broken the first time one of the android powered rifles kills. It's a matter of time if it hasn't already happened and we just don't know it.

Robots don't kill people, people kill people.

But we have the right to code and cyber arms!
(Well we should. Or not.)

Yes, but when the first case of a security robot greasing a toddler with a toy gun goes to court, the defense will boil down to "just following established procedure, mistakes happen, a thorough reveiw will be conducted, bleah, bleah, bleah . . ."
