“Armed security at every school is the answer.” ABC anchor Chris Cuomo

Chris Cuomo is the ABC law correspondent and 20/20 anchor who comes from the prominent New York Democratic family. He has been tweeting his thought about the Newton, Conn. school horror all weekend:

To be clear, I am more concerned abt how we do (or don’t) handle mentally unstable people than I am abt guns. #Newtown can open this convo

Dropped off my 1st grader. Sad to see eyes darting. Nervous smiles. Schools are safe and could be safer. We can do better on many leverls

— Chris Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) December 17, 2012

@robblount this is too obvious. We can do better. These kids…what was done to them…the risk is just to great with ass rifles

— Chris Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) December 16, 2012

He appeared on The View this morning to discuss the massacre and endorsed armed school security guards:

Today ABC News’ @chriscuomo joins the co-hosts as they discuss the tragic elementary school shooting in Connecticut.#theview

— The View (@theviewtv) December 17, 2012

While celebrities Jackee Harris and Rosie O’Donnell led outraged objections to his perspective, many viewers (notably many non-celeb females outside the NY/DC/Hollywood echo chamber) appreciated Cuomo’s thoughts:

I think @chriscuomo is right– we need armed security at schools. Fast first responders. #TheView

#theview–thank goodness for Chris Cuomo & his common sense! It’s not about guns, unless you agree with increased armed security.

Take a look at a San Antonio Tx story where tragedy was stopped by Armed Security.I agree with Cris Cuomo.More security is needed.

— Nancy J. Saldana (@NancyJSaldana) December 17, 2012

Completely agree with Chris Cuomo. Every school needs to have armed security personnel.

Chris Cuomo is throwing down on The View. “We have a culture of violence.” He’s so right! This is what we need to be discussing!
