"We’re held hostage by 50 senators in Washington"protests the NBA coach

The emotion and anger of Steve Kerr. After the fattack in an elementary school in Texas, which killed more than 20 people, according to the latest report, Tuesday, May 24, the coach of the Golden State Warriors in the NBA did not have the head in basketball. A few minutes before playing the fourth round of the Western Conference Finals against the Dallas Mavericks, the former teammate of Michael Jordan let his emotions speak at a press conference. “When are we going to do something? I’m tired. Tired of standing in front of you to offer my condolences to the devastated families. I have enough“, he lamented.

Since we left the training session, 14 children have been killed 600 km from here, and a teacher [bilan revu à la hausse depuis]. In the past ten days, black seniors have been killed in a supermarket in Buffalo, Asian worshipers have been killed in Southern California, and now children have been killed at school“Coach Kerr continued with tears in his eyes.

Steve Kerr, who had already lost his temper in the same way when he learned of the death of George Floyd (May 25, 2020), then attacked American senators who refuse to legislate despite the litany of massacres. In particular, he mentioned the HR 8 measure proposed during Barack Obama’s mandate, which aims to carry out a check on the criminal or psychological background of purchasers of individual weapons.

This was approved by the House of Representatives in March 2021, but is still dormant in the Senate. We are being held hostage by 50 senators in Washington, who refuse to even put this measure to a vote, despite what we, the American people, want., he lambasted, banging his fist on the table. In response to yesterday’s shooting, the US Senate has scheduled for the first time on its agenda a first reading of this bill.

Before the start of the playoff game (which saw the Warriors lose 119 to 109), a long moment of silence was observed in the arena of the Dallas Mavericks in tribute to the victims of the tragedy that occurred at Uvalde, Texas.
