Approxamatly how many people per year die from knife crime?

You can use the UCR (uniform crime report) to determine this type of data. It is compiled by Law enforcement agencies yearly. This is a link to the table about murders by weapons. http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2007/offenses/expanded_information/data/shrtable_07.html Here are the numbers: 2003: 1,828 2004: 1,866 2005: 1,920 2006: 1,830 2008: 1,796
