Golden State Warriors Head Coach Lambasted the NRA (Again)

San Francisco’s Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr continued his long-standing tirade against the NRA at a home game Dec. 9 when he told a local reporter that “our government officials have to decide that the safety of our citizens is more important than the money they receive from the NRA.” Kerr was speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle and added that he wants more stringent background checks on firearms purchases.

Kerr’s comments were not an isolated incident. In October 2018, he told other news media, “I’m going to vote for every candidate that’s willing to stand up to the NRA,” before adding, “we have to get rid of bump stocks; we have to get rid of high-capacity magazines; we have to get rid of semi-automatic weapons.”

Continuing his gun-control political stance, the Warriors head coach wore a shirt to game two of the NBA Finals in June that stated “Vote for Our Lives,” which supports the anti-gun group, March for Our Lives.

This is the same group that issued what it calls a “peace plan,” which may be better labeled as “A Comprehensive Plan to Abolish the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”

It is no surprise that the Golden State Warriors are based in San Francisco, the same city that labeled the NRA – and, by extension, all NRA members – as a domestic terrorist organization.

Kerr – and many others, such as March for Our Lives and Bloomberg-backed Moms Demand Action – blatantly ignore the NRA’s history as a defender of civil liberties guaranteed in the U.S. Bill of Rights.

Having reached the past five NBA Finals and winning three, the Warriors have twice refused to make the customary visit to the White House during the Trump Administration, making their lone appearance in 2015 while Barack Obama was still president.

The team currently has a 5-23 record and is in last place in the Western Conference.
