Ahead of Tuesday night's Western Conference Finals game, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr gave an impassioned speech against gun violence hours after at least 21 people, including 19 children, were killed in a shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
"I'm not gonna talk about basketball. Nothing's happened with our team in the last six hours. We're gonna start the same way tonight. Any basketball questions don't matter," he began. "Since we left shoot-around, 14 children were killed 400 miles from here, and a teacher. And in the last 10 days we've had elderly black people killed in a supermarket in Buffalo. We've had Asian churchgoers killed in Southern California, and now we have children murdered at school."
"When are we gonna do something?" he said. "I'm so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there. I'm tired of the moments of silence. Enough."
Kerr specifically advocated for H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, which would expand federal background checks required for gun purchases.
