15. In that example, "the sword" is clearly a metaphor for "violence"

I would think that's basic English comprehension. Still, it doesn't mean that my point is invalid. Until we start calling out the people involved in violence, and simply blame the weapon as if there were no prime mover we will continue to miss the bull's eye. I say address the murderer, not the weapon. Is that so hard?

Sorry for the additional heaping of metaphor, but since we're on the topic... I don't really mean the actual eye of a bull here, you know?
