From Encyclopedia Britannica

  • WEAPON: an instrument used in combat for the purpose of killing, injuring, or defeating an enemy.
Most likely the very first weapon used was a stick. Then someone made a club, another sharpened a stick to invent the spear, and the nuclear arms race began. I bet it was a rock. I'll go with a rock. But by the time the US existed, I'm sure there was more modern stuff to kill with.
