Golden State Warriors basketball coach Steve Kerr took aim at Washington for what he sees as a lack of action on gun control, saying he doesn’t think politicians care enough about the issue.
“It doesn’t seem to matter 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, at a movie theater. It’s not enough, apparently, to move our leadership, our government, the people running our country, to actually do anything,” Kerr said.
Kerr added that it’s quite “disgusting” and “demoralizing,” urging the public to take action by voting in leadership who doesn’t “bow down to the NRA.”
“That’s demoralizing,” Kerr added. “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 have financed their campaign for them.”
“Hopefully we’ll find enough people, first of all to vote good people in, but hopefully we can find enough people with courage to actually help our citizens feel 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.”
Kerr has been an outspoken critic of President Trump, dating back to the campaign.
