An Analysis of the influence of Population density
“By and large, the available evidence increasingly tends to suggest that most types of crime tend to increase in levels of occurrence with increasing population density. This relationship, however, is moderated by SES. A cluster of affluent high-rise apartments in Mumbai or New York may have high density, but will also have a high level of guardianship, thus inhibiting crime. On the other hand, a high density poverty area will incorporate in its lifestyle incentives for predatory behaviours and disincentives for guardianship, given the hazards associated with confronting criminals (on their turf) or witnessing criminal acts.+
Harries - Population density and crime - IJCJS vol 1 issue 2
The conclusion would be: Incentives to guard property (more police attention, and armed population that can protect its self) reduce acts of violence. Reduce the protection level and crime becomes profitable. Actual punishment works.

Because the city that doesn't allow guns is full of them?

Chicago's a large economy unto itself, supporting meat packing, finance, transportation and corporate businesses; it has lots of people; is reasonably wealthy, all things considered; has been a big draw for unsavory characters since it became a "hub"; has been a staple spot for organized crime; has a large "underclass" that lives largely outside the prime opportunities in the area; has a large international airport and is a hub for train/bus travel; has long had a sizable population of folks who are suspicious of police involvement, often coming from places in the world where such involvement is often intertwined with corruption and "disappearing" (IOW, some might say, they've come to the right place).
Add to that a crappy economy, rampant and growing gang problem, and the simple fact that it's one big victim disarmament zone ... well, in many respects, it's sure to be seen by many sorts as a criminal's paradise. No real surprises, there.

Yes. Congestive heart failure. Age 88 IIRC.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

In a place like NYC, Chicago, New Orleans, L/A, or any other highly populated location... There is always a witness. The hard part is finding one... The harder part is getting a statement out of them.

Contrary to popular belief... NY is pretty much a must issue City. While it's next to impossible to obtain a permit to carry a firearm for the average person... The City will issue a premis permit. Admitedly they will try to sandbag the applicant, they will look for reasons to deny the permit... They will even drag the application investigation out longer than they should... Eventually they will issue a premis permit. This is good for having a firearm in your home for self protection, and may be carried unloaded in a locked box to a target range. There are probably more legal guns in NYC than King Bloomburg will ever admit.
