Next step is obviously teaching it how to kill people in the game and get away from police.
I'd like to see the AI go on a rampage and win :).
That should be enough to wipe off a lot of smiles off our idealistic faces :)
anyways, electronic actuation of a firearm is already illegal in the US. if you're firing a gun in any way besides actually pulling a trigger with a finger, chances are good it's illegal (with some small leeway such as turning a handcrank)
But if you're going for some sort of obscure criminal achievement by only breaking one law at a time, then just make your lethal device something that does not legally qualify as a firearm. A black-powder muzzle-loader or a Bulgarian ricin-umbrella would do the trick, depending on whether you care about noise or not.
Or, like the parent mentions, make a grenade, and deliver it via remote-piloted aircraft.
Realistically, though, very few people on this planet would bother with any of that when they can often just kick down the door of your home, kill you with a tool purchased from a hardware or sporting goods store, and just leave before police can respond. The clearance rate for violent crimes in the US is already low enough, even for people who give no thought whatsoever to covering their tracks.
I'll continue to assume that unmanned aircraft are carrying cameras, and assume that if someone wants to murder me, they need a compelling reason to have a more complicated plan than to just bash my skull in with a big rock when I'm not looking.
Huh, that explains why Mythbusters always used a string rather than any sort of servo system. Neat.

Substituting other devices to be actuated seems... trivial, and well within the reach of even hobbyists.
