If you ever need to know what NOT to say after a tragedy in this country look no further than Chris Cuomo ranting about how people who offer their thoughts and prayers are mocking those who have lost loved ones.
No seriously, he said this crap.
See for yourself:
CNN's Cuomo: "You mock those who lost loved ones" in shootings "when you offer thoughts & prayers…And prayer? You think leaving it to God is the answer?"
Cuomo: "is it ridiculous" to ask if we would act if a "stadium full of children…holding puppies…were all shot & killed? pic.twitter.com/OBXljqfXcy

Stay classy, Chris.
God is always the answer.

No one wants these travesties to continue, Chris, but the toothpaste isn't going back in the tube. Good people need to have the legal ability to defend themselves in public places. It's the simplest and cheapest solution and it's the only one that is consistent with liberty.

Cuomo doesn’t understand faith, or what prayer is or why we pray. When he says “you think leaving it to God is the answer” ? He is mocking people of faith.
Is mocking people of faith the answer @ChrisCuomo ??
And FYI, There’s NEVER a time where prayer is not needed.

Chris is more interested in lecturing legal gun owners than he is actually working to stop gun violence.
But you knew that.
This commentary makes Chris feel better but it too mocks the victims because its main purpose is not really to solve the problem but to be SEEN to be expressing moral outrage.

@ChrisCuomo When is praying for someone considered mocking ? Don’t you consider yourself a Catholic?
Yes , we need thought provoking answers to complex societal ills being the goal but you Chris mocking prayer isn’t going to get us there either .

Maybe we should all pray for Chris.
