A Short Animated History Of Weapons

They say ever since man discovered he could club his fellow man to death with a rock he's been making bigger and deadlier weapons on a daily basis, but I say man learned to strangle and bite before he went clubbing.

We’ve come a long way from the good old days of slings and stone axes, and our ability to create bigger and deadlier weapons has helped shape human history, for better or worse.

The Atlantic created an animated short that succinctly reveals the evolution of weaponry, using data from the book A History Of The World In 100 Weapons by Chris McNab. The minimal animation probably won't blow you away, but you'll have plenty of dates to drop at your next NRA meeting!
