I hope no one was thinking that i was bashing the swat-team. It just took me back when i heard it took over 45 minutes for the swat team to enter. Who knows, they might of rushed in and made it worse. Its just sad that the people in there didnt have a chance. The way i see it is theres only 3 ways to make everyone safer.
1--Take all guns away from everyone---(BAD)
2--Put cops in every building in the USA---(Yeah right)
3--Allow more people to carry guns----(Should be #1)
By no means am i saying that by allowing more cc,oc that it would end all shootings rather, at least you would have a chance.
Oh yeah i choose 3

One of the lessons of the Columbine shooting is that waiting for reinforcements or a SWAT unit to arrive will cost innocent lives in an 'active shooter' situation. Even the lone cop on duty providing some sort of aggressive response has been shown to limit the human toll exacted by such a shooter - Trolley Square in Salt Lake City being a notable example.
I'm unsure of exactly what the LE response was in the Binghamton situation, but I anxiously await the full story.

I guess it really does depend, you're right. Supposedly SWAT did not enter because they did not hear shots. Perhaps they thought it was a hostage situation primarily, and went into stand-off mode instead of entry mode.
