Steve Kerr Calls For More Gun Control In Wake Of Uvalde Shooting

Everyone knows that what happened in Uvalde, TX is nothing short of abominable. While we naturally seek solutions to these issues, our emotional reactions in such situations can often cause us to recommend things that may not be beneficial in the end.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has long been an advocate for strict gun control, and predictably, he delivered another impassioned plea to U.S. lawmakers to tighten gun control laws on Tuesday, shortly before his squad was about to face the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 of the NBA’s Western Conference Finals.

Kerr, when he spoke of the House bill passed by the Senate that was not adopted by the Senate, was talking about H.R.8. This bill would have tightened background checks for firearm transfers between private individuals.

Kerr seems to have a logical solution. Just make it harder for people to buy and get guns and stuff like this won’t happened.

But unfortunately, that’s not how it works.

Take Chicago, IL for an example. Kerr, along with many other progressives, would argue that Chicago would have fewer gun crimes if it had some of the most restrictive gun laws in America.

That’s not the case.

Chicago Police Department stated that the number of shooting incidents in the city was 3,561, despite the fact that the gun laws were strict. This came after the city’s Gun Investigations Team took over 12,000 illegal firearms of the streets in that same yea

It is important to remember that making it difficult or taking away illegal firearms does not make it less likely. A criminal, or deranged person will find any way they can get their desired results.

It is clear that the world we live in is broken. But when the solutions we suggest don’t produce the results we want, it’s time to look for different solutions.
