Broome County Director of Emergency Services Brett Chellis said there is an "active" shooting situation at the American Civic Association, and that several law enforcement agencies are at the scene.

Chellis did not provide numbers of victims or hostages, and had no further details.

The local newspaper, the Press & Sun-Bulletin, said on its Web site that at least four people were shot and 41 people had been taken hostage. The newspaper reported that Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan, who was at the scene, said there was a hostage situation and said the shooter had a high-powered rifle.

It cracks me up watching these live events on live news stations (I think CNN is trying to interview a couple of squirrels in an adjacent tree but can't get at them because Fox news is already up there interviewing the pigeons!) :lol:

Ironic you mentioned that because CNN said much the same thing, basically no live coverage because there isn't anyone in the area to do it.

Remember back in the 70's when 'All in the Family' was addressing the rampant Airline hijacking in the Middle East....good ole Archie Bunker said: Give everyone on the plane a 'piece', and then no one would have to be afraid of their seatmate or anyone else. You try to shoot me, I shoot you back...right now!! No SWAT team, no special forces needed.
We all laughed then, but that is probably the best advise we have ever received. Give pilots a means of self defense...and some SOB takes it away. Any way you look at it, it is a horrible reminder of how precious life is to our society....and how easily it can be taken away.

PS: I'm glad CNN or FOX couldn't scare up a fast talkin' stupid question asking/comment reporter. Binghamton is a quiet place to live and work, let them deal with this by themselves. Thank you.....
