Steve Kerr talks about about the mass shooting in Virginia Beach

Vegas- During pregame of game 2 of the NBA Finals, Steve Kerr decided to give his thoughts about the mass shooting in Virginia Beach that happened last week after a reporter asked him about his “Vote for Our Lives Shirt.”

“The young generation, the ‘March for Our Lives’ generation, has really inspired me,” said Kerr. “So I offer my support to them and to all young people, and hope that we can create a change where we don’t all have to walk around scared that we’re going to get shot in our country.”

The shooting happened on Friday in Virginia Beach and twelve people were killed, as the shooter De­Wayne Craddock went on a shooting spree. Craddock was killed, due to the injuries he suffered as he was shot firing back during the standoff with law enforcement. No details have emerged as to why Craddock killed twelve people.

Kerr has always been vocal about what is going on in the world and when it comes to gun violence, he takes it personally. When he was 18 years old, Kerr’s father was fatally killed in a shooting and Kerr has always felt connected with victims when they are going through the pain of mass killings.

“When 90 percent of our country wants background checks on gun purchases, and we’ve got our Senate and our House not only voting it down but using the Bill of Rights as a reason for people to have rights to carry these automatic weapons,” Kerr said on a podcast in 2016, “and we’re getting people murdered every day at an alarming rate, I just have to get this off my chest , our government is insane. We are insane.”
