Golden State Warriors head basketball coach and gun control fanatic Steve Kerr came out firing after Sunday’s early morning Sacramento shooting incident. Both he and Joe Biden called for the repeal of gun control laws, which have been in place since the beginning of the 20th Century.
Six people were killed and a dozen others injured in the aftermath of a large fight involving multiple gunmen in Sacramento.
Kerr criticised the Warriors for observing a moment in silence prior to their game that day. He said, “I don’t think moments of silence are going to do anything. At some point … our government has to decide are we going to have some commonsense gun laws, it’s not going to solve everything, but it will save lives.
“Despite the fact that 80 to 90 percent of Americans support background checks and you know, you think about all of the commonsense laws we could and should put in place.”
Before you jump, gun control supporters should take a look at the facts. Such laws have been in the books in nearly every state since the 1990s, including California, according to AWR Hawkins, Breitbart’s Second Amendment writer. Kerr, however, is not surprised by this fact. This was also requested by Joe Biden, President of the United States.
“Background checks via the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) have existed in every state since the mid-1990s,” Hawkins reported. “Moreover, California adopted universal background checks in the 1990s, which means every gun sale in the state–retail or private–requires a background check in order to be legal.”
Preceding the Warriors’ 109-90 win over the Sacramento Kings Sunday, Kerr angrily charged into the topic he obsesses on practically every time gun violence erupts in the U.S. Kerr called the government a fool for failing to enforce Second Amendment rights.
If our government was able to do so, and if we were able to have any courage, then people would put other people ahead of themselves, their careers, their reelection campaigns, their propaganda, etc. It’s right there in front of us.
A study by Everytown for Gun Safety revealed that California has the strongest gun laws in the country, but those laws did nothing to stop Sunday’s violence.
“It’s just the same stuff over and over and over again,” Kerr said. Kerr said that nothing changes for the families of victims and it was time to take action. [having]Give yourself a second moment to be silent and send your thoughts and prayers.
It’s been just over a year since Kerr last screeched about gun control. After the March 2021 shootings in Boulder, Colo., he peppered away at Sen. Ted Cruz (Rep-TX) and Republicans for ignoring gun control and supposedly refusing to listen to their constituents.
In 2018, after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, Kerr blamed government inactivity on gun control as a cause inevitably leading to massacre after massacre.
