I was reading on that somewhere and it turns out that the criminal with a gun was more likely to simply brandish it or fire a warning shot, where the criminals with knives were MUCH more likely to actually use them against people.

In the end, the crimes where the perp had a knife tended to result in more injuries than in the ones where the perp was armed with a gun.
Don't remember where I read that though.
