Types of Weapon Used in Aggravated Assault and Robbery by State 2015
This table provides the types of weapons used in aggravated assault and robbery offenses. The data are based on the aggregated data from agencies within each state for which weapon information was reported to the FBI. The table includes the number of agencies that submitted data by state and the population covered by those agencies. The dataset also includes a breakdown of the types of firearms used in murders (i.e., handguns, rifles, shotguns, or firearms).

The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program defines aggravated assault as an unlawful attack by one person upon another for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. The UCR Program further specifies that this type of assault is usually accompanied by the use of a weapon or by other means likely to produce death or great bodily harm. Attempted aggravated assault that involves the display of—or threat to use—a gun, knife, or other weapon is included in this crime category because serious personal injury would likely result if the assault were completed. When aggravated assault and larceny-theft occur together, the offense falls under the category of robbery.
Males, American Indians, and Hispanics, the young, and those with the lowest annual household income were more vulnerable to weapon violence in general and firearm violence in particular than their respective counterparts.
The supplemental homicide data submitted by the Florida state UCR Program did not meet UCR guidelines and were not included in this table.
The FBI received limited supplemental homicide data from the Illinois and Alabama state UCR Programs.
