    I personally had a good friend killed by her ex-husband with a hammer in front of her children.
    The weapon didn't matter..if a baseball bat was closer I'm sure he would have used it.

    I just really have a hard time believing they keep statistics specifically involving death by hammers.

    Local law enforcement/Attorney General offices keeps track of causes of death when it comes to homicide, its part of figuring out who did the crime, as you have to determine cause of death. All the FBI did was compile the data.

    So saying "blunt force trauma" is not specific enough in court, you have to say "killed with gun" or "killed with knife" or yes, "killed with hammer."

    No cite? Where are you getting your statistics? Here are the ones for Baltimore City:

    Causes of Death

    Shootings: 179
    Stabbings/Cuttings: 19
    Blunt-Force Trauma/ Beatings: 11
    Other: 5
    Unknown: 1


    As you can see, ALL blunt force trauma accounted for only 5.1% of the total, while shootings represented 83.3%.
