First, the town`s name is spelled Binghamton, after its founder, an old-style American named Bingham. I  spelled it wrong, a couple of  times below.

Second, you can expect this to be spun as a gun-control story, as the Virginia Tech Massacre and the Long Island Railroad shooting were. New York State has particularly savage victim-disarmament laws, although they`re not as bad upstate as they are in New York City. There are already laws that forbid, but do not prevent, ownership of the gun used by the shooter.
