PEARL RIVER - The debate over gun control is raging on across the nation, including across the Hudson Valley, as details emerge following Friday's shooting rampage in Connecticut.  

At a shooting range in Pearl River, longtime gun owners say they're condemning the massacre that left 20 children dead, but insist that guns are not to blame.

Shooting instructor Fred Baldus says evil people who acquire guns are the culprits, not the weapons themselves.

Others agree, saying the public push to ban certain guns, including assault weapons, is highly reactionary.
