You'd be guilty. This doesn't

You'd be guilty. This doesn't contradict what I've said in the least bit.

Your pretenses are flawed for the argument you're trying to present. A machine in your example is actually the weapon. It would be the equivalent of wielding a drone. You've merely restated my position.
