Weapons of War

Is the head of the spear to blame for the stab?  is the shaft of the arrow not hollow; but full of dread?  Is the sword of a warrior not as blood thirsty as it's master?  is the stone the fault of the sling or the caster?  a battle axe, though ancient. was once used in warfare.  is barbed wire guilty for all the things that it snares?  Which one is at fault, the bullet or the gun?  is a taser at fault for all the victums it stuns?  is a hammer to blame for all that fall before it?  is a dagger to blame for all the cuts that it slit?
