NBA’s Steve Kerr: ‘We can vote people in who actually have the courage to protect peoples’ lives’

The Golden State Warrior’s head coach Steve Kerr has been very vocal about the injustices inflicted by those in power in our country. After the terrible school shooting in Florida on Wednesday, Kerr was asked by reporters for his thoughts on the matter.

Well, 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, the people 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 peoples’ lives and not just bow down to the NRA because they finance their campaign for them. So, hopefully, we will find enough people, first of all, to vote good people with courage to actually help our citizens remain safe and focus on the real safety issues and 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 (who) are just slaughtering our children. It’s disgusting.

We can start by getting rid of these tools.
