The NBA continues to push politics on fans.
They won’t let people enjoy the sport without their mind-numbing takes.
And a Trump-deranged NBA coach just went on one nonsensical gun control tirade.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is one of the most obnoxious liberals coaching in the NBA.
He’s constantly rivaling San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich for the worst “woke” takes in the league.
One issue that gets Kerr particularly furious is guns.
Kerr is a notorious gun grabber, and he’s always looking for a reason to take away Second Amendment rights.
And he’s using the horrific mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas to do exactly that.
Before game four of the Western Conference Finals between the Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks, Kerr refused to talk about basketball.
He instantly went on a rant and blamed Senate Republicans for the victims’ deaths.
“I ask you, Mitch McConnell, and ask all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence, the school shootings, the supermarket shootings, I ask you: Are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children, our elderly, and our churchgoers? Because that’s what it looks like. That’s what we do every week. I’m fed up, I’ve had enough…Fifty senators in Washington are going to hold us hostage. Do you realize 90 percent of Americans, regardless of political party, want universal background checks? We’re being held hostage by 50 senators in Washington who refuse to even put it to a vote, despite what we, the American people, want. They won’t vote on it because they want to hold onto their own power. It’s pathetic. I’ve had enough.”

Kerr’s despicable rant highlights the unearned moral superiority and ignorance of gun control zealots like him.
The bill he mentioned called for universal background checks, but there are already background checks in place to buy a gun legally.
The killer passed a background check.
A universal background check would mean that private sellers, such as two family members, would have to pay for a background check to sell to someone else.
A universal background check would not have solved anything.
Plus, it’s already against the law to knowingly sell to someone who cannot legally possess a firearm.
Beyond that, Kerr didn’t offer any real solutions; he just wants politicians to “do something.”
That is not the foundation for good legislation.
Also, gun grabbers like Kerr are not good-faith actors in the gun debate.
The end goal is gun confiscation, and they will stand on the graves of all victims in order to accomplish it.
