A weapon is any object used in an offensive or criminal matter to inflict injury, death or as a threat.

A knife, axe, tire iron, pipe, screwdriver, rope, cement block and a million other items are also weapons. It depends on use and context.

Or they could simply be tools or objects.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
