Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, just like many other around the country, was moved by the horrific incident in Texas. The veteran Head aCoach utilised a pregame interview to target a Texas senator for being passive on the rules, as the series of incidents remain non-stop.

Golden State Warriors remain in Texas for a closeout game against Dallas Mavericks. With a 3-0 lead in the series, the Warriors are just 1 win away to make it into the NBA Finals after missing out in the last 2 postseasons. But a dreadful event in Texas shadowed the game and Steve Kerr was not left behind. A teenage gunman killed 19 (as per latest report) children and 3 adults at an elementary school in Texas. Shaken by the news, Steve Kerr on Tuesday, condemned senators. He fires back on the rules and regulations, and targets Republican leader Mitch McConnell, for failing to act on gun legislation.

The atrocious event took place in the west Texas town of Uvalde, over 300 miles from the site of the massacre. Many NBA stars and coaches also expressed their concerns over the proceedings. Kerr also recalled a mass shooting 10 days ago at a Buffalo grocery store. Taunted as a hate crime, a racist gunman targeted mainly Black people, as well as an attack on Asian parishioners at a California church.

Steve Kerr, a cool player and coach on the court lost his control hearing the recurring events. He lashed out at the way the government is handling “shooting” situations. The Golden State Warriors’ YouTube accounts and official Twitter posted the video of Kerr’s emotional plea. He expects real action on gun violence and strict rules over the same.

In the Pre-game interview, Steve Kerr didn’t comment on the game, but widely focused on the horrifying events. He said, “When are we going to do something? I ask you, Mitch McConnell, I ask all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence and school shootings and supermarket shootings”

He further questioned McConnell’s intentions, as he said, “I ask you, are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children and our elderly and our churchgoers?” he said. “Because that’s what it looks like.”

Senator Mitch also shared emotional messages through his social account. Mitch McConnell’s Twitter account wrote on Tuesday afternoon that he was “horrified and heartbroken” by the “disgusting violence directed at innocent school kids.””The entire country is praying for the children, families, teachers, and staff and the first responders on the scene,” the tweet read.

President Biden was also furious about the events, denounces the US gun lobby, and vow to end the nation’s cycle of mass shootings. “It’s time to turn this pain into action for every parent, for every citizen of this country. It’s time for those who obstruct or delay or block commonsense gun laws — we need to let you know that we will not forget,” he said.

McConnell also mentioned HR8, a bill that would expand background checks for gun purchases. The Democratic-controlled House passed it in 2019, but the measure would need to clear the 60-vote filibuster threshold in the evenly divided Senate. Republicans, many of whom are backed by the National Rifle Association, have successfully swatted away several attempts to impose restrictions on access to guns.

Sadly Steve had personally experienced the horrific effects of such events. Kerr’s father, Malcolm Kerr, was killed by gunmen in Lebanon in 1984. He was serving as president of the American University of Beirut. But the Warriors coach does not only talk about gunning events and often weighed in on social issues.

Calling for quick action Steve said, “We can’t get numb to this,” It really is very disturbing and heart-melting news, and strict actions are required to restrict any further occurrences. Though off-court events disturbed Steve, on the court the Warriors team has kept their Championship winning coach pleased.
