It's actually lower in some big places

For example the US' biggest city, New York City crime rates peaked in the late 1980s and early 1990s, declining continuously since, and currently has a lower homicide rate than the whole of the country:

Crime rates in New York City have been recorded since at least the 1800s.[1] The highest crime totals were recorded in the late 1980s and early 1990s as the crack epidemic surged,[2][3] and then declined continuously since the mid-1990s and throughout the 2000s.[4]

As of 2023, New York City has significantly lower rates of gun violence than many other large cities.[5] Its 2022 homicide rate of 6.0 per 100,000 residents compares favorably to the rate in the United States as a whole (7.0 per 100,000) and to rates in much more violent cities such as St. Louis (64.4 per 100,000 residents) and New Orleans (53.3 per 100,000).[6]

With a tsunami of guns on the streets there will be killings and mass murders.
