Apparently all our tools are now weapons...

Or all our tools can be weapons. 

I remember a fight between two girls in HS.  The weapon was a can/bottle opener. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Two guys in my barracks got into it with entrenching tools in the middle of the night.  Never knew what that was about, but they were going at it with some serious intent.

I had a guy put a knife to my neck when I was in my navy school barracks. He thought he could scare me. He caught me off guard.  I was always waiting from him to come back in my room and try it. ?Fool me once?.

Absolutely.  I remember for a while when I flew, back when you had to check in, they would ask if I had "anything that could be used as a weapon".  I always answered "no" while I thought, "anything can be used as a weapon..."  The one attack with a weapon I remember when I was a kid was one kid stabbing another with a sharp pencil... despite the fact that both kids had a knife in their pocket...

I got into a tussle with a guy back in high school.  In lieu of brass knuckles, he had a Master Lock combination lock from his locker in his hand.  I still cringe from the pain.  Haven't been able to breathe out one side of my nose since.  He wore me out with that thing.

Remember those long combs with the wavy handles girls would wear in their back pockets?  The ones with the teeth about an inch and a half long?  Saw 2 girls get into a brawl in high school and one girl came close to taking out an eyeball of the other with a comb like that.
