To Kill a Mockingbird

Why does Atticus' choice of weapons admirably suit this farce of a trial? How is this irony?

This is about the weapons Atticus used during the trial, when he was trying to prove Tom Robinson's innocence.

Atticus used simple logic and truth as a weapon. Even Scout notes that a small child could see that Tom was innocent. Still, the prosecutions used basic bigotry and hate to keep the jury on their side.
