Steve Kerr’s Powerful Message On Florida Shooting Massacre

 

Yesterday, a former student shot students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. He killed 17 and injured dozens more. As after previous shootings, the NBA family has been vocal about increased gun control. Among them, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, who has been actively speaking out for gun control for many years.

Before the Warriors’ game in Portland Kerr addressed the issue once again, saying that the government has failed to protect citizens by making a change in response to frequent mass shootings.

 

“Nothing has been done. It doesn’t seem to matter to our government that children are being shot to death day after day in schools. It doesn’t matter that people are being shot at a concert, in a movie theater. It’s not enough, apparently, to move our leadership, our government, people that are running this country, to actually do anything. That’s demoralizing.

But we can do something about it. We can vote people in who actually have the courage to protect people’s lives and not just bow down to the NRA because they’ve financed their campaign for them. So, hopefully we’ll find enough people, first of all, to vote good people in, but hopefully we can find enough people with courage to help our citizens remain safe and focus on the real safety issues. Not building some stupid wall for billions of dollars that has nothing to do with our safety, but actually protecting us from what truly is dangerous, which is maniacs with semi-automatic weapons just slaughtering our children. It’s disgusting.”
