Don't bother, vegetarians lose all reason about this.
all classical expositions of karma include the case of ordering someone else to kill for you for the very reason that people of low intelligence will actually think that it excuses them from culpability.
if you actually think that saying "i would never kill an animal to eat it but Im OK with paying someone else to kill it so I can eat it" makes sense, then I really don't know what else to say to you.
Yes well, I don't know when was the last time you went to a restaurant, caffeteria or a grocery etc. but these days (and as long as I've been alive) you don't come there and say "hey, I'd like some beef, go and kill some for me and I'll pay you". You come, there's meat, you buy or you don't.
It's just a silly argument.
