There are a lot of ways of manipulating statistics. If one looks at cities by population of greater than 500,000, then DC rises up some as the smaller more violent cites are removed from the data set.

I have seen the data for crimes before and since the gun regulations and pistol ban went into effects A person would have to run a multivariate analysis to sort out the effects because the numbers fluctuate all over the place.

Here is a link to the crime stats (United States cities by crime rate ). The one above from BB, is based on cities with 75,000+ people. DC consistently ranks in the top 5 for as long as I can remember. There is a link in the wiki page to the FBI uniform crime report and all the stats. You can also find most of the "raw" data there, for your own analysis.

If you really want to have some fun, combine the violent crime data, with data from the census bureau.
