Viral video shows Steve Kerr’s impassioned response to school shooting in Uvalde

It truly hurts to type these words, but on Tuesday, a deranged gunman walked into Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and proceeded to murder 21 innocent people, including 19 precious children. Prior to Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was not in the mood to talk about anything related to the game of basketball.

Instead, Kerr, whose father was shot and killed during a terrorist attack in Beirut in 1984, used his platform to give an impassioned response to the tragic events that took place earlier that day in Uvalde.

“When are we going to do something?” Kerr yelled, slamming his fists on the table. “I’m tired. I am so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there. I am so tired of the, excuse, I am sorry, I am tired of the moments of silence. Enough!”

“There’s a reason why they won’t vote on it,” Kerr said. “To hold on to power.”

As he looked into the camera, he continued, “So I ask you: [Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell, I ask all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence and school shootings and supermarket shootings. 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? Because that’s what it looks like. It’s what we do every week.”

Here is the video of Steve Kerr speaking about the tragic event that took place in Uvalde.
