Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr wore a gun control shirt to Sunday’s NBA Finals Game 2.

USA Today reports that Kerr wore a shirt showing solidarity with the “Vote for Our Lives” movement, an offshoot of the “March for Our Lives” gun control activists.

Kerr said:

The shirt has everything to do with the tragedy in Virginia Beach and how devastated so many families are and so many people are. The shirt’s a reminder that the only way we can get out of this mess is to actually vote, and to vote for people who are going to be willing to create some change in our gun laws in our country.

On June 2, Breitbart News reported that Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera stressed that no gun control would have prevented Friday’s heinous attack. Cervara told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “We do have the Second Amendment, it is very stringent for our country. In this particular case the weapons were obtained legally. Everything was done in a legal manner by this individual.”

But Golden State’s Coach Kerr wants more gun control.

On May 31, Breitbart News reported that Kerr suggested to the Mercury News that well-funded youth can “impose” gun control on the non-compliant. He talked of how the gun control lobby is gaining more and more money for its adherents, then said, “So as the money evens out and influence evens out, these younger generations are going to impose the will of the people.”
