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.
