Like millions of people around the country, Steve Kerr is sick and tired of waking up to yet another mass shooting in this country and nothing being done about it.
The Golden State Warriors head coach has been one fo the most outspoken head coaches in the NBA about getting more gun control in this country, he discussed the topic at length Monday in the wake of mass shootings in three cities last week.
Kerr stated he fears a gunman “could walk in the door in the gym right now and start spraying us with an AR-15.”

“I think about it all the time,” Kerr said. “Somebody could walk in the door in the gym right now and start spraying us with an AR-15,” Kerr told Bay Area News Group as he eyed the practice court on Monday. “They could.

It’s up to us as Americans to demand change from the gutless leadership that continues to allow this to happen and continues to somehow claim the second amendment is doing its job. The second amendment is about the right to defend yourself. The only thing that second amendment is doing is leading to mass murder right now. This is all just insanity.”
The first shooting occurred on July 28th at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Then in a 24 hour period, there were 22 shot and killed in El Paso, Texas that was followed with another 9 shot down in Dayton, Ohio. Altogether, at least 34 people died.
Kerr was also outspoken following the shooting and killing of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in 2018:
