‘It’s pathetic, I’ve had enough!’

In a video that has since gone viral, Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr gave an impassioned plea for gun control after 19 Robb Elementary School students and a teacher were killed by an 18-year-old gunman.

Criticizing congressional leaders for their inaction on gun control legislation, he was at times angry and anguished.

“When are we going to do something?” Kerr said during a news conference before Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. “I’m tired. I’m so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there. I’m tired of the moments of silence. Enough. There’s 50 senators, right now, who refuse to vote on H.R. 8, which is a background check rule that the House passed [last year]. … There’s a reason they won’t vote on it: to hold on to power.

“I ask you, Mitch McConnell, and ask all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence, the school shootings, the supermarket shootings, I ask you, ‘Are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children, our elderly and our churchgoers?’ Because that’s what it looks like.”
