Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr opened up about advocating for
gun control in an interview Tuesday, saying he believes young voters will
deliver change on the issue.

Kerr, an outspoken critic of President Trump and his administration, told
the Mercury News he believes that the representatives in Congress have
views that don’t reflect those of Americans and it will be the younger
generation to vote out the politicians who don’t agree with their views on
gun control.

FLASHBACK: GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS COACH STEVE KERR SOMETIMES FEELS
'PATRONIZED' BY 'NATIONALISTIC' MILITARY DISPLAYS

“What is happening is, especially for March for Our Lives, there is a
group of young people fed up with all of these school shootings,” Kerr
said. “They are setting up these chapters all over the country. What each
chapter is trying to do is get people to vote.”

He added that reason why the U.S. doesn’t have “sensible gun laws” is
because of the National Rifle Association’s power over politicians and
elections.

“The reason we don’t have sensible gun laws is the NRA has always been
really powerful and has always funded elections at the grassroots level.
Now these groups that I’m talking about are actually starting to fund
elections themselves. So as the money evens out and influence evens out,
these younger generations are going to impose the will of the people,” he
told the paper.

Kerr added: “The vast majority of people don’t think AR-15’s should be
allowed in the hands of a citizen. Or high-capacity magazines. They want
background checks, as I mentioned. So the hope lies in people voting in
good conscience for the protection and safety and each other and not some
crazed, fringe viewpoint that somehow our freedom is tied to our right to
an AR-15.”

Kerr, who won five NBA titles as a player and three as a coach, has been a
supporter of strict gun control laws and was affected by gun violence
himself when he was younger. Kerr’s father was shot and killed in Beirut,
Lebanon, in 1984 by a group associated with the Islamic Holy War.

Since becoming the Warriors head coach, he’s talked to many families
affected by shootings in Parkland, Florida, Aurora, Colorado and Las
Vegas.

According to the Denver Post, he told a group of students last year he
wanted to save lives.

“I’m here because I’m a citizen of this country and we live in a
democracy. I feel like it’s my responsibility to speak on some of the
things happening in the world today,” he said.

How about targeting behavior, Steve. That's the real problem.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

The Obama-led Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
approved Uranium One in fall 2010. With a little luck, we'll see
compulsive liar Hillary Clinton in jail before she dies.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

The Constitution is against GUN CONTROL, not the politicians.

Maybe Democrats should try to get an Amendment ratified to repeal the
RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS.... but then the government
never gave anyone a right to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS so how will they take it
away?

That's provably F A L S E.

Just last weekend I was at a local firearms training school for 2 days
of intense firearms training, along with 700 other armed students.
Classes required 200-600 rounds of ammunition.

The facts:

- 700 armed students
- Over 700 firearms (some classes use multiple weapons systems), not
including the range firearms (rentals, etc.).
- At least 280,000 rounds of ammunition, not including the perhaps
million rounds in the on-site ammo store.

During the time that I was on site, there was not one, repeat, not one
aggressive incident toward another person, including firearm or
otherwise. Not one. I've been to this school over 60 times, and during
all those times, not one incident.

So there, I've proved your statement F A L S E.

Oh, wait, hmmmmmmm.....

Well, maybe I'm wrong here. It looks like guns aren't the problem after
all, I stand corrected.

I'm going to have to look more into your assertion that the problem is
bad behavior. I've always assumed that guns have some sort of
radioactive death ray that causes otherwise good people to behave
violently, but apparently that isn't the case. Maybe there are violent
people among us, that will use whatever tool is at their disposal to
commit their acts of violence. Since we can't eliminate all tools
(unless you consider ejecting the entire human race into outer space to
float around aimlessly), maybe we should look at identifying the real
root causes of violent behavior and correcting and eliminating those.
For those people that are just naturally violent, we eliminate them.

Guns are part of the problem. Guns don't "cause" someone to want to commit
crimes, but for someone who has already formulated the thought to commit a
violent crime, guns lower the cost of doing so. The cheaper something is
to do, the more it is done.

Yeah, good point.

Hands are part of the problem too. We should cut off hands.

Eyes too. Let the eye-poke-out siege begin.

Hands and eyes are cheap, damn cheap, everyone gets them for free.

Your conclusion makes a lot of sense if you want to solve something
other than the real problem. Are you a Democrat?

No. What is false is your assumption that guns are part of the problem,
and that the solution is more useless gun control.

You seek to ban tools, and leave the root cause alone. The removal of
hands is a solution to the problem. Removal of guns does little, if
anything to solve the problem. No guns, violent people use other means
to affect their violent tendencies. Surprise!

You want to talk solutions, then let's look at root causes.

You want to infringe on rights, then let's talk about cutting of your hands.

No, not more useless gun control - controls that keep guns out of the hands
of people likely to commit violent crimes with them.

Oh, but wait, the people are still violent! Best just to leave them
alone so that they can vote in more Democrats? Is that the reason?

I know that this will be incomprehensible to you, but real solutions
look at root causes (i.e. what are the causes that lead to violent
behavior in individuals) and then address those.

How does violating my rights solve anything? All that you have done is
/increase/ violence. That's stupid in my book. It should be stupid in
your book too.

But with no or greatly attenuated access to guns, they will find it more
expensive to engage in violent crime, and so they will engage in less of it.

Lol! Sure they will. Please provide ANY evidence to support your claim
that costs are directly related to violence.

You still haven't answered my question, though. How does violating my
rights (violence, by definition, mind you) decrease violence?

And allow me a moment, if you will, to demonstrate the complete idiocy
of the 'ban guns' platform.

Violence is quite simply: the use of physical force so as to injure,
abuse, damage, or destroy.

By depriving me, a law-abiding citizen, of my right to own guns, you are
engaging in violence -- that is, the use of physical force to damage or
destroy my right of freedom, defense, happiness, life, and liberty. You
aren't advocating for less violence, you are advocating for MORE!

And the coach is an idiot because the "politicians" won't be passing
laws ban guns since it's a RIGHT of the PEOPLE.

That means the only way would be to STEAL the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE.

What the coach wants is for Americans to elect UN-AMERICAN LIBERALS who
are willing to undermine the Constitution and commit treason. Because
they think they created OUR INALIENABLE RIGHT. More proof that Democrats
don't even understand the concepts laid out in the Constitution.
