Why Use Weapons?

The reason why people use weapons is the same reason from all the prehistoric times that reason is survival.

The First

One of the first weapons to be used was a spear also a branch used as a club and one we are all familiar with a rock.A little later people learned to tie a arrow head to the spear also a bow and arrow from sharp sticks .Then people started to use flint for axes but flint was brittle and fragile so it broke easily.
