Chris Cuomo from CNN made conservatives angry with Twitter by appearing to criticize a rape survivor for carrying a gun.

Cuomo responded to a video that was posted in support of the National Rifle Association by Kimberly Corban.

& # 39; I was a normal 20-year-old student & # 39 ;, says Corban in the video.

& # 39; When I moved to housing outside the campus, she boasted that it was safe.

& # 39; I was the first. I woke up in the middle of the night and suffocated.

& # 39; The next two hours I knew I was going to die and I couldn't do anything.

& # 39; Now I am a mother of two, and if that predator or anyone else tries to harm me or my family, they must first pass through my firearm.

& # 39; I will never be unarmed or completely vulnerable again.

& # 39; The only reason I can say that is because the NRA fought for my rights before I ever knew I needed them.

Meghan McCain responded to Cuomo by tweeting: Kim Corban is a rapist survivor who now chooses to tell her story & arm and protect herself. I think a real question is why so many men in the media always treat conservative women such as our values, life experiences and perspective is a kind of joke. As if we are less appreciated. & # 39;

Cuomo then responded to some of his critics, including McCain, when he wrote: & # 39; Read what I tweeted. You have my intentions wrong.

& # 39; A story about the survivor and the right to bear arms is not where we are stuck … We cannot ignore this impasse on everything or nothing to make reasonable changes to help reduce lethal violence.

& # 39; Please talk if you have more questions. & # 39;

The CNN host replied: & # 39; You know I didn't mean that. I'm a gun owner. & # 39; This is how I see a legitimate right to wear and that is clear in the law. & # 39; Why pretend to be a heartless hater? & # 39; I have expanded what I said and there is no reason to run it here. & # 39; I know that's what Twitter is, but it doesn't solve anything. & # 39;

Cuomo also wrote back to Janice Dean, tweeting: & # 39; You are right. No offense intended. Too short on twitter. & # 39; Only in America & # 39; we are still debating the legitimate right to protect yourself like you and many others vs a sensible way to hold guns against wrong people & # 39;

Cuomo then tweeted: & # 39; I'm sorry for confusion. I take the issue and stories about violence seriously.

& # 39; Muscles don't stop bullets, as you know.

& # 39; Again, I've always been clear about the right to own and what needs to be improved.

& # 39; Apologies if you have been misled. & # 39;
