71. The FIREARM HOMICIDE rate has been higher in Houston.

With the most recent figures I can find for Violence-Related FIREARMS Deaths Among Residents of Metropolitan Areas and Cities --- United States, 2006—2007 there were eight cities with firearm homicide rates of almost double the two year average of Chicago’s.
City of Newark, New Jersey 25.4 firearm homicide rate per 100,000
City of Miami, Florida 23.7
City of Detroit, Michigan 35.9
City of Oakland, California 26.6
City of St. Louis, Missouri 24.1
City of Baltimore, Maryland 29.7
City of Richmond, Virginia 23.1
City of New Orleans, Louisiana 62.1

There’s another dozen or so cities with firearms homicide rates higher than Chicago’s but didn’t make the DOUBLE level including Houston.
Numbers and annual rates (per 100,000) of firearm homicides and suicides for the 50 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), by age group --- United States, 2006--2007*

U posted "Houston has half the murder rate of Chicago".

Houston’s FIREARM homicide rate for the two year average 2006-2007 is higher than Chicago’s
City of Houston, Texas 12.9
City of Chicago, Illinois 11.6
