Anyone can shoot a gun, swing a sword, or rock a mace into a person’s skull. Sure, if you want to be good with a weapon, you’ll need to actually train but there are several instances where an amateur has used a weapon to kill someone. Hell, that’s the purpose of a weapon: to physically disable or kill. However, while weapons cannot become everything, everything can become a weapon.
With the right amount of skill, stubbornness, necessity, or all three put together, any object can become a deadly weapon for someone.
