  • His father died in a shooting so he perfectly knows what losing someone dear in this way means. He deeply feels every word he said.

    • @Joseph Joestar …. Because our governments are vastly different, we value individual freedom and liberty as demonstrated and written in OUR constitution. The reason gun confiscation succeeded in Australia is because your three branches of government are NOT separate NOR equal. Thus, often by force, YOU are subjects TO the government.

    • @W. David Holland but civilians can buy an RPG...

  • I've always been a fan of Steve Kerr. Articulate, intelligent. He is definitely speaking the truth.

  • When an honorable man speaks, we need to listen. Even before this, I always knew Steve Kerr is a great man. Thank you Steve Kerr, the world is a better place with you in it.

    • An oneralbale man would speak out about this league in bed with chinese weavers genocide

    • I wonder if this guy is also talking and cries to the mayor's of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore , cities across America in each city every weekend more then all three shootings combined die due to violence.

  • Steve..We hear you. Heartbreaking. Your heart must break everytime this happens as you had such a terrible loss too. Proud of you Sir. We hear you. Thank you Steve..

    • @simon J what i want yo know is, why do you keep saying "400 mass shootings a year"...where are you getting this ridiculous number

    • @TheGillenium I take it all back. 400 mass shootings only account for one in every hundred murders. That makes it so much better. Cracking statistics! LOL!

    • @simon J read what you wrote about 400 mass shootings a year...., and then go back and read what he wrote.

  • People like him let me know that there is still good people in U.S. Thank you for speaking up and remimd people to live a meaningful life. Thanks again Sir.

  • MAN I FELT EVERY BIT OF THIS YOU CAN HEAR PAIN IN HIS VOICE

    • your feelings don't matter

    • @R. Ward Oakland?? That's why I stopped taking BART and moved to another state.

  • His message clearly hit me and has my eyes feeling watery and damn it that someone’s child being killed at school where it supposed to be safe, but officers have been cowards and it’s true

    • ok

    • ok

    • @TheOtherView no they're not. Banning semi autos isn't going to do anything.

    • This is BS. Banning semi automátics and doing background checks are solutions that answer “how” it happened but it doesn’t explain the “why” which is a much tougher question.

  • He has a heart, he feels the pain of these families. I have been crying like crazy thinking about these moms, dad’s siblings. The pain is so unbearable, can someone please do some thing to stop gun violence??😭

    • The people who should do something about it aren't...maybe it's time you guys do something drastic about it. PS: I'm a Kenyan but I deeply sympathize...

  • I've always loved Steve Kerr. I felt every word, Coach.

    • @Manu John Nah, I support and defend the US Constitution. Those who don't - and especially those who *swear an oath* to - will face consequences.

    • rossburg84 Nothing but an emotional press conference he delivered turned out to fire himself and the Warriors up!!

    • @Be Well Everybody needs to be saved not just Steve. So work to ban guns as soon as possible.

    • @Manu John Does Steve need saving? What do you mean? You saying he isn't a believer?

    • @Be Well No condolences is gong to save anyone.........lumphead

  • Man the emotion he's giving off, it's so powerful, I hope the right people feel that power and act on it! If he were to run for a public office position, I'd vote for him!

  • I feel for Steve Kerr

  • families affected by this travesty. For the children who survive, I hope they get the help they need to deal with such a traumatizing experience.

    • Justice! The justice they need

  • Wow .. I mean it hits home hard but this bloke just delivered the truth and a powerful msg from his heart, I respect his words ... Love from Australia for what it's worth

  • Well said Steve. You're a great leader and a compassionate man. And 100 percent, right.

    • Connect the dots for us how he's 100% right about 50 senators refusing to vote on HR-8 equating to the 'obvious' correctness that they do so to "hold on to power". kthx.

  • Bless his heart! I whole heartedly agree with him. Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country. God bless us, everyone!

  • I feel for Steve Kerr. He lost a loved one through gun violence. I'm sick of those shootings.

    • @J. Sand Well, he was their own teen that did it. So it's the same!

    • No it wouldn't. HR 8 would have done nothing about either shooting he mentioned. They both passed background checks.

  • Good Job Mr Kerr. Somebody that has access to the media needed to use that opportunity to say it and you did just that. Good for you💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

  • Amen Steve thanks for standing up for us

  • Thank you Coach Kerr for your courage in continuing to speak out about these atrocities.

  • I love his words. Really hope the US will actually do something against the skyrocketing gun violence cases

  • For a man that lost a family member to gun violence all those years ago, You can see and feel that Steve Kerr’s comments definitely hit close to home.

    • @Tommi Tuutone I don't think they were related. I must admit that Red when he was younger looks like Steve.

    • @Tommi Tuutone not sure if there was any relation.

    • @AJ2015 in Beirut Lebanon in 1984.

    • @fgrfgfrgrgrgrg are you saying the Uvalde shooter had a machine gun? A machine gun is legal, however very expense and heavily regulated, can't walk out same day with it. And not all gun stores are licesnsed to sell automatic weapons. Please Google the steps it takes to own a machine gun, then comment.

    • @Carl Charles That's true, however you must be legally able to possess a handgun. Prohibited possessors can't posess nor open or conceal carry.

  • All my support man!! It is crazy to see what is going on in US year after year... I am very sorry for you. Hope things change in the coming years...

  • Steve, I'm with you 10000% and that was very well spoken!

  • i respect the heck out him for saying this. Even as a rightest

  • Thank you so much Mr Steve Kerr for every word that you said. You said just the Truth!

  • His father died in a shooting so he perfectly knows what losing someone dear in this way means. He deeply feels every word he said.

    • @swimm3r137 I have several guns and I bought them all online. I had a background check everytime. That's because online purchases have to got to an FFL. I even got background checked for a basic pump action shotgun. I could buy a gun with all the money that I've payed juat my gun related background checks lol

    • @Beisht Kione not true, 100%. To buy a gun in the US, yes a background check is required, but that's only through federally, licensed sellers. If you buy a gun online, or in "private," it's not required. Last year alone, 22% of gun sales were private.

    • @carlos del valle actually he DOES have that right

    • @Beisht Kione You don't have to know much to know that the 2nd amendment and the availabilty a weapon that massacres children in seconds should probably not be a thing.

  • much love Steve, my family and I use to cheer for you from Mexico when you where with the Bulls, and now we cheer for you more than every. Un abrazo hermano.

  • Absolute legend. We need more people with strength like this

    • Legendary fucking ideates

  • I'm glad coach spoke out and with passion ...thank you ...thank you... thank you.. a real man

  • Thank you Steve Kerr for speaking on how we all feel about gun violence

  • MAN I FELT EVERY BIT OF THIS YOU CAN HEAR PAIN IN HIS VOICE

    • @Willard Andersen It was sarcasm chill

    • Did you pray that his team sinks more 3 point shots because of that pain?

    • @Ed Tunn why is it a show

    • @JT Was "someone" holding the gun when it fired, or did the gun-an inanimate object-come to "life" and discharge a bullet, detective Columbo????

  • Dear Mr. Kerr : thank you for standing up. I admire you.

  • I had never heard of Steve Kerr until this vid. I have a great level of respect for him now. America must do something to stop these horrendous killings.

  • Thank you Steve for speaking up 🙌🏽

  • Well said Steve. RESPECT!

  • This brings tears to my eyes. So much suffering in this world I just want to die sometimes. My parents were murdered in front of me during a robbery when I was 12 years old. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Ever since I've been battling PTSD, anxiety disorders, and several other mental health issues. My thoughts and prayers go out to all these families affected by this travesty. For the children who survive, I hope they get the help they need to deal with such a traumatizing experience. 😢

    • 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

    • Im so sorry for your loss and trauma. It hurts to even read about it

    • @Willie Hampton I’m not sure what you’re trying to say but I didn’t catch anything in particular.

    • @Akshay Kumar two wrongs don't make a right

    • @Akshay Kumar and also racism is a worldwide problem

  • When you speak up it makes a real difference. Thank you with all our hearts for telling it like it is. Elizabeth and Brendan

  • We need many and many more like him in this country. Common sense that is quickly fading away.

    • And political claptrap is coming to the forefront...

  • We need a hell of a lot more people of influenced step up to the plate like Steve Kerr just did 👏🏾👏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

    • MURDER IS ALREADY ILLEGAL. What makes you think more laws will change this?

    • chicargo?????? deys donts matta?

  • Just the fact that he called out on the senators, and the VERY FACT that he asked: "When are we gonna do something?!" as he smacked his fist on the table. This man has my respect.

  • He moved me to tears. He’s a good man. His heart is broken. You can’t fake that. ❤️‍🩹

    • @Ray Finlay nah. That old chestnut: “Rich people don’t care” will only keep people poor because they equate virtue with having very little money. I’m over trusting that bogusness. I hope that guy is at least a billionaire. A million ain’t what it used to be.

    • He's a multi million trust me he don't care

  • Shout out to Steve Kerr for keeping it real

  • For those of you praising him for standing up and speaking out against this: why aren't you? Make your voices heard.

  • Love this guy, showing balls when needed.

  • Well said. You’re outrage is shared. Thank you for speaking your mind.

  • This felt real enough. Respect for Steve Kerr. The people who can change something should stand up for this.

    • @Jim St.Romain …something’

    • Something that makes it son you need a license to use a gun

    • Merhaba Mustafa bey. 18 yaşında serbest cene silah alması yanlış di bence de.

    • @jrfirefiher imo keep the guns, more gun laws aren't gonna stop people who break laws, I bet all guns used in these shootings are illegal anyway so getting rid of guns just gets guns out of the good users hands

    • @henrique andrade ...probably...lol. But I don't want to rule over anybody, I have enough trouble keeping up with myself.

  • THANK YOU!!!! I’m so mad!!!! Thank you for using your platform for good!! I’ve been saying the same things, with the same passion, but unfortunately don’t have the same, large platform as you. Much appreciated for you using your voice!!!

  • Steve Kerr for office - he should run. I feel this man's pain through his words.

    • Well said Steve. You're a great leader and a compassionate man. And 100 percent, right.

  • Well said.thank you 4 using your airtime in the best possible manner

  • Thanks Steve. We need influential people from all walks of life speak up like you have.

  • Man I respect Steve Kerr. He’s gotta be one of the only basketball related people to actually talk about this head on, and you can hear every ounce of frustration, sadness, and pain in his voice. And he’s completely right to top it all off. Again, mad respect to Steve Kerr.

    • @Hu Du self projecting much?

    • @Jason Brinkman San Fran is the pinnacle of metro areas... No mention of that? Just Mitch (whos a scumbag) but the od's in his own city zero cares?

  • Much respect for him for standing up!

  • Thank you Steve the world needs more people like you

  • It was very touching, respect to Steve Kerr

  • I’ve never been an NBA fan but I may start today! Thank you Steve for being a decent human!!!!!

  • Steve’s dad was assassinated by a gunman. You can hear the emotion in his voice and in his breathing, and he really means it.

    • @whaaaaaaat yup sure sure whatever you say

    • @whaaaaaaat yup wrong? look it up kid....

    • @T- Prizmo wrong. Ever heard of baseball bat violence? Or knife violence?

  • Wow, the passion and pain in his voice sent chills down my spine

  • I ain’t a warriors fan but definitely a fan of Steve Kerr!! Powerful words!! He said what he said what he said!!! He told the world how he feels about it. He called out the Senate and everything!! That’s a man of God right there!!! Spoke in peace with some strong words!! And He is Right!!! Hats off to him!!

  • God bless you brother for speaking up

  • I feel this man’s anger. I’m so sick of this. We need real change. Cut it with their prayers and moments of silence, they don’t bring the dead back to life and they don’t prevent future tragedies.

  • I dont watch sports, or know this man's affiliation politically, sportswise, religiously, etc, but this was amazing. Thank you, sir, for using your platform to say something.

    • @LeGeneralManager How?…. Because I’m a Celtics fan 🤣

    • @mr21 No, I'm going to keep imagining what we could do with $40B that went to some money laundering hell hole called Ukraine.

    • @Mike Texas imagine if the gas companies would stop seeking record profits from the situation

  • Thanks Steve Kerr for being a stand up compassionate human being.

  • It's is really sobering to hear this message. Well said Mr. Kerr! In a country that is so full of dickheads, it's important that these people are heard.

  • I feel his frustration. Seeing death happen every week to innocents does something to you mentally. I know personally, it fills me with a lot of dread, especially for our future.

  • Man!!!! Bruh this is so sad 😞…. Steve Kerr I’m with you on this issue Because this is a major issue… and it’s sucks big time.

  • Legendary, respect for this man just went up tremendously

    • @soul desire I agree. People are really fcked up in the head. And who do imbeciles wanna go after? The law abiding citizens who wanna keep guns for self defense only. People need to start looking at the ones that causes the problem, not the ones that don't. 🙄

    • @MJ It WAS corny and fake.

    • @nobody it’s my first and only.

    • @Willard Andersen No, don’t do Republican v. Democrat game. Just have reasonable arguments.

  • A great man, respect 100%

  • Steve Kerr is a guy that has always been so smart and so ahead of everything. Including when he played basketball. Such strong speech, amazing!

    • This is BS. Banning semi automátics and doing background checks are solutions that answer “how” it happened but it doesn’t explain the “why” which is a much tougher question.

    • Please cite an example of his "smartness" if you would, please. Did Steve score high on his SATs like LeBron???

  • Someone has to say it bluntly. Thank you for having the guts to do so. Respect.

  • Good Job Mr Kerr. Somebody that has access to the media needed to use that opportunity to say it and you did just that. Good for you

  • man i teared up watching this. rest and peace to those who passed away in this tragedy and condolences to their families.

    • @ch hansen Goofy ahh acronyms

    • @Martin Fox Granite ?

    • @mediascribble He’s not fed up with the concept of condolences. He’s giving condolences to people. He’s tired of NEEDING TO. Paying respects to victims of murder is completely justifiable.

  • Steve Kerr will always have my “RESPECT”🏁💯

    • He's a Democrat. He doesn't have my respect.

  • Thank you, Steve Kerr.

  • Thank you Mr. Kerr! God Bless you sir!

  • Heart felt, and meaningful.

  • I’m grateful people like Steve with a microphone speak about important things like this. EDIT: Yes, some background checks exist, but there are legal loopholes that allow gun purchases without a background check, like purchasing at a gun show. We need to close the loopholes with UNIVERSAL background checks. Would it have stopped this tragedy? No. Would it help prevent future tragedies? Without a doubt. There’s no single answer to this problem. 2nd EDIT: Buying a gun at a gun show, at least in Texas, is considered a private sale, so background checks are not required. Call it what you want, but I want background checks for every gun purchase. And for the record, I’m a licensed concealed carry card holder, even though you don’t have to be licensed in Texas anymore to carry concealed, and I own a number of guns.

    • @Jack Mehoff what you speak of is equivalent to an anti abortion advocate saying in the cases of rape. You have used a small fragment to form your argument. It has corrupted your thinking. And you now take a stance on .000001% of gun laws. I’m not your weak father. I can’t reason with you.

    • @Jack Mehoff I didn't think background checks were required on transactions between private seller and buyer. Gun show don't let private sellers stroll around and drum up sales in the hall but it is done. I'm no expert on gun shows anyway. My point was that a lot of people think there are no checks period, but of course, FFL sellers do checks.

    • @Jack Mehoff Ok, what would you suggest that doesn’t violate my 2nd amendment right?? Back to my other comment, drugs are illegal, theft is illegal, drunk driving is illegal. Criminals are going to get guns no matter what. What is your suggestion?

    • @Erik Hoffman what Steve Kerr said...

  • WELL SAID STEVE THIS IS ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC 💯 👏🏼

  • It’s about time someone says something real 💯

  • He’s saying everything that is in our minds and voices that sometimes cannot be heard. We too have been victims to gun violence!!!!!!! From an adult to a 2 yr. Old!!!!

  • I think Mr. Kerr has his priorities where they should be. Thank you Sir.

  • This is the man that stood up to Jordan and hit back when everyone else ran scared. He’s always had a spine of steel. To watch him be so moved and motional is heartbreaking. I am glad he is not numb to the situation like so many have become.💖💖💖

    • @Mohsen Slim He obviously doesn't know that we already have background checks. So, he's making himself look like a fool!

    • @firestream93 you should start to think otherwise because coaches are human beings too not robots if the Uvalde cops were robots I think they would have caught that kid in 30 seconds

    • @Sam Bone nope he stood up to jordan got à black eye and after jordan had mad respect to him because he showed him he wasnt a quitter

    • @Mohsen Slim OK. I'm not really interested in his entanglement with Jordan.

    • @Watjalukinat standing up to someone bigger than you taller and meaner

  • Man this moved to me tears in my break room at work. This is just crazy man

  • I'm so devastated about this news. I am a father with two daughters and i am a teacher as well. So painful to here about this tragedy.

  • Respect to the man!

  • Thank you for speaking up! Yes when is this going to STOP?? Until this affects their own kids they will take action

  • Crazy how so many lives can be shattered by one guy with a gun in only a matter of minutes. My deepest condolences to the victims and families.

    • @Quandarius Elford Gary JaVon Ja'Marius Jackson III its all good man

    • @Me be bored Oh shit if you did my bad

    • @Quandarius Elford Gary JaVon Ja'Marius Jackson III actually i commented it on the inside edition video

    • You stole this exact comment from the inside edition video

    • @Capital District Locksmiths I believe that is often due to everyone chasing symptoms and not causes. How is it we weapons in the back of trucks at schools decades ago and no issues? How is it there were weapons above every fireplace in colonial America with no issues? Is it that the individual and not the tool is the issue? Is it that for 50 years our society has continually repeated "it's not your fault", "your truth", and subjective morality? Maybe, if we returned to moral absolutes, responsibility, discipline, and "life's not fair" we might raise future generations to be able to deal with difficulty, rejection, and lack of stardom without horrendous outlashing?

  • Thank you. This is heartbreaking but someone needs to scream this. I am so sad.

  • The perfect platform to say and to demand that this stuff has to change! Thanks Steve Kerr for speaking on that, instead of basketball! This is topic that must be talked about!

  • Amen Steve 🙏 Said it right ✅ 👏 👌

  • What a legend of a man 🌈

  • As a non-American, I am not legitimate to give a moral lesson or opinion on gun laws or the way your country is run. But as a father of four children, I can feel the pain and despair of all those bereaved families in your country, week after week. And I want to say my respect to Mr. Kerr for using his popularity to send a message to your politicians. His pain and anger should be shared by every human being, regardless of nationality and social class.

    • @TheOtherView so you mean you want all guns banned except for bolt action hunting rifles?!

    • This is BS. Banning semi automátics and doing background checks are solutions that answer “how” it happened but it doesn’t explain the “why” which is a much tougher question.

    • If he spoke out about the Uyghurs i might take him as sincere. But his paycheck is obviously much more important to him than innocents being killed.

    • Nah, he's just an activist. He he cared he wouldn't have protested against armed guards in schools.

  • This is heart breaking. 😭

  • I,m with you Steve.I hold the same anger When is enough gonna be enough?. These senseless shootings have all involved high powered assault rifles.They dont just kill the person, they are powerful enough to dismember a person to shreds.Those poor kids didnt have a chance against one of those bullets.

  • The worlds coach ❤️ love Steve Kerr

  • This is a true leader!!!!! Thank you Steve Kerr!!! It's time for all the Sentors to step up or leave office!!!

  • I stand with coach Kerr.

    • @Jake Hill guess what mate…here in this country we have a constitution with a 2nd amendment .. we don’t surrender OUR rights

    • @king8lopez I live in Australia mate, I’ll happily go into lockdown if it means children aren’t being massacred in schools every 6 months

  • Thank u for remembering everyone. This is a National problem. Yes fix the problem for all people. Gun violences crosses all races and economic group. Thank you for your voice!🙏🏿🌹❤️😷😇🥰🥰🥰🌻🌻🌻🌻

  • Coach Kerr...all the respect to you!!..💙💙💙..

  • Mr. Kerr I have much respect for you calling out the politicians out!!

  • This is such an incredible, powerful message. One school shooting is one school shooting too many. 😪
