A improvised weapon is a object that was not designed to be a weapon, but could be because it could injure someone else. An improvised weapon is usually used when no other weapon sources are available. They are easier to get than real weapons, so robbers and muggers often use them. Some well-known improvised weapons are illegal to bring into certain areas; for example, bringing fireworks into places without permission is usually prohibited.
Examples of improvised weapons Edit
Construction items (bricks, for example)
Objects that may cause suffocation (plastic bags)
