13 Dead in Upstate New York Immigration Center Shooting Rampage

DEVELOPING: Thirteen people are dead after a gunman opened fire at an immigration center in Binghamton, N.Y.

The shooter was identified as a local resident of Asian descent named Jiverly Voong. There were conflicting reports as to whether he was 41 or 42. Local authorities told The Associated Press he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Voong blocked the back door of the building with his car, then stormed in through the front entrance while firing a high-powered gun. Several people were taken hostage.

The bloodbath killed 12 people plus the gunman, who also goes by the name of Linh Phat Voong and lived in the Binghamton suburb of Johnson City.

Voong wore a bright green nylon jacket and dark-rimmed glasses as he executed victim after victim, according to local media. His body was found on first floor with a hunting knife jammed into the waistband of his pants, the reports said.

There are many questions to be answered here. What spurred this guy, Jiverly Voong, to commit such a heinous crime? Why did he go on a rampage against a civic center, the American Civic Association? It appears that this group only serves one purpose, to help immigrants become legal citizens and learn English.

Was there a personal connection? A person or persons that Voong believed had perhaps done him a disservice? Was there a more personal perceived wrong? A love interest perhaps? Were his actions directed against the immigration process in general?

There is still a lot of confusion in the MSM, they are trying to sort out the facts, and one source is saying that Voong is of Vietnamese decent. That itself presents a reasonable question, was Voong a LEGAL citizen of the USA? Was he perhaps a disgruntled seeker of citizenship? At the moment it’s all speculation, I am sure the facts will come out in the next few days.

There is one thing that IS a certainty, the gun grabbers will try to turn this into an anti-guns rant and use it as another tool in their battle to take guns out of the hands of legal, sane and responsible Americans!

I have been ridiculed by a few for MY stance on shooting ILLEGAL INVADERS as they cross the border, nothing in this has changed my opinion of ILLEGALS. These folks were immigrants, NOT invaders, they were trying to do the right thing.

That is the part of this thing that truly makes me sick…
