Which states that homicide involving a knife of sharp object has dropped by 18%. The lowest since 1996.

Indeed it does. Good you are getting the statistics straight now so maybe you two can have a debate about it.
But when you are four years removed from the highest number of knife homicides in 30 years since your government started keeping the tally and knife homicides rose 40% in the same decade, you really have nowhere to go but down.
