Earlier today, the NRA’s Twitter account tweeted a short video that featured Kimberly Corban, a rape survivor who told the story of her horrific assault and how she would never allow herself to be victimized again:

Corban has also detailed her story on her website:

Kimberly Corban grew up in Greeley, Colorado and still has the pleasure of calling the Rocky Mountain state home. In May of 2006, Kimberly’s life was irrevocably changed when a stranger broke into her college-area apartment, held her there for two hours, and raped her. She immediately reported the crime to authorities and served as the key witness in her attacker’s trial, successfully garnering a sexual assault conviction.

CNN‘s resident blowhard Chris Cuomo seemed to take issue with the video of Corban that the NRA posted, as Fox News reports:

The video showed Kimberly Corban, an armed mother who acquired firearms after her rape in college. “I’m a mother of two, and if that predator or anyone else tries to harm me or my family, they have to come through my firearm first,” she said, before praising the NRA’s efforts to protect gun rights.

When Cuomo tweeted the video, he posted a comment suggesting that Corban’s story was unique to the United States. “Only in America,” he tweeted.

In response, Meghan McCain flattened him:

Fox News‘s senior meteorologist Janice Dean also weighed in:

Corban herself even suggested Cuomo have her on his show to discuss the issue:

Cuomo later responded to McCain, Dean and other critics by saying he was misinterpreted:





Who out there is buying what he’s selling on this? I’m in Charles’s camp:

And NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch isn’t buying it, either:

Yep.
