  • If it weren't for the last dance I wouldn't have known about Steve Kerr's dad. All the respect to this man. And the deepest condolences to the victims and their families. May we soon find peace with this repetitive tragedy.

    • @Terry If you want to be a cop, you have to live in the neighborhood of your precinct and voted acceptable by members of the precinct community. No guns, no body armor, walking a beat. Massive decrease in the number of officers. Only focusing on stopping violent crime, no drug related offenses or misdemeanors. Redirecting homeless people encountered to mental health facilities, food banks and shelters instead of jailing them. Thing is, this would save so much money too, it’s 50% of the NYC budget, probably roughly the same if not more across a bunch of cities. Use that extra money to give people more financial security and less need to even think about committing crime out of impoverished desperation. Edit: To clarify, by “no guns” this is no guns on patrol. If a situation did escalate, (which wouldn’t be often if we honestly tried to implement gun control effectively), the guns and SWAT are on standby

    • @Ser Spanky so what’s your plan. What would you do to the police force

  • That’s why I ❤️ Steve Kerr. Moving speech. I’m a father and my heart breaks from those families and victims.

    • @metalacop criminals don't do what was done in this situation - this was a crazy person, *not a criminal*

    • @Judson Schatzman Body armor only has minimal effectiveness, a couple shots to the chest even with a flak vest is still enough to stop someone. Especially someone who is as skinny as the shooter was, shrapnel and several broken ribs is going to make it a lot harder for someone to continue their crusade.

    • @I BE Nice excuse

  • This is groundbreaking! Never EVER have I heard a coach speak out like this with such anger, knowledge but also commitment. Massive respect for Steve Kerr

    • @Trey Beggs I’ve been to a lot of schools. Fully educated. Read a lot of history and highly you suggest it.

    • @darth nader bro stay in school!

    • @darth nader I own guns and worked in the law enforcement Industry and I strongly believe we should amend the 2nd and make human rights come before gun rights!

    • @ExitScreaming so glad you put that out there. I've gotten destroyed for calling Steve Kerr fake.

  • He’s right about the thoughts and prayers thing. It’s such a joke, until it happens to you it’s not taken seriously.

    • @J wade The teachers having firearms is pretty asinine. Unless the teacher is vet with actual combat experience, there are far too many variable that would lead it being a more dangerous situation to the classroom. The proper training and education and going over drills for one thing, the cost of that being another. With a firearm in the classroom situations are able to rise in threat level far more quickly. What happens when a teacher shoots a student over a misunderstanding, or misses while firing at a threat, killing an innocent student. What happens if a few students decide to get physical with the teacher and take the firearm away. Think things through objectively.

    • Cuz none of these statements matter. Those people are gone and NOTHINGS going to change.

    • he’s right about everything we don’t need guns it’s guns or American lives and so far for the last 20 years since columbine we have chosen guns over American lives… it doesnt make sense

    • Sad but true

  • All my respects go to you Mr. Kerr. This has gone past the line and urgently needs to be dealt with.

    • @Go Rocketzz bruh americans🤦🤦🤦

    • “I LivE wIT wAMbOs anD UnICoRns”

    • @TheSniperPLGaming you’ve obviously never heard of a black market

    • @Tomas Wenmakers yeah I know. Its in their minds you cant help them. I live in Poland I travelled a lot through EU and i never been scared that someone might shot me😂

  • Seen him play for Arizona in the Great Alaska Shootout. Remember what he had to go through loosing his Dad in Grenada. This guy is definitely a caring & passionate individual. I thank him for saying something about gun violence & gun control.

    • @Ty Brown Thanks Ty. Not sure what I was thinking about in Grenada

    • Dad was killed in Beirut

    • @ExitScreaming as an outsider looking in, it's bizarre to me that an 18 year old has access to a semi automatic. Gun control is the sensible thing to do. Where I live we don't need to station officers outside schools, since we make it hard for people to get guns.

  • this sends chills down my spine, you can't find a motive behind this, and we definetly CANNOT GET NUMB TO THIS AND NEXT WEEK FORGET ABOUT THIS, PLEASE GIVE ALL LOVE TO YOUR FAMILIES, THIS IS SERIOUS, AND DEEPLY DEPRESSING THAT WE LIVE IN THIS MODERN DAY WORLD, PLEASE MAKE A CHANGE NOW

    • Nothing will change

    • @TheSimpsonssince90 bruh.

    • Also when you see kids with mental help problems which this kid clearly had get him the help he needs.. like a counselor who actually wants to do their jobs.. its a collective effort on trying to help the kid its not a blanket statement of guns are bad we need to get rid of them.

    • @Jr Woods exactly put two trained police officers in the school whos lone job is child protection.. it may cost tax payers money but if it saves one life its worth it.

    • Which is something entirely different than buying and owning a gun privately. It wouldn't do any harm to increase the age to 21+

  • This is what I like to see a coach speaking out no matter what the NBA might do this shows how Steve Kerr really cares and this shows how politically unstable the communication with the government really is

    • It affects him personally because he lost his dad after two gunmen killed him

    • If the NBA finds this offensive to the league & fines Steve or the Warriors in any way I'm done watching the NBA...

  • I''m crying right now, thank you Steve, I truly mean that, Than You!!!

    • He protested against armed guards at schools two years ago.

  • what a great human being. Thank you Steve Kerr for speaking out in this moment of need.

    • @ExitScreaming my thoughts exactly

    • Kinda like when he spoke out in favor of Defunding the Police and having Police removed from school campuses?

  • The history behind his emotions makes this even more heartbreaking

    • @darth nader Cheers, mate. You are free to believe what you want to believe. Just don’t forget to open your mind before coming to conclusions; it’s best practice in life.

    • @Patrick Kraus as it turns out it took a guy with a gun to stop him soooo there is your answr put armed security in our schools they won't be a target anymore thats for sure!!!

    • @darth nader "childhood trauma" + data + facts.... seems like on the inside you never grew up at all......

    • @cmdtrigun the killer passed a background check…. The holy of the holy.

    • @Patrick Kraus Sorry I’m all grown up I make decisions upon data and facts and childhood trauma.

  • First thing I said to myself when I read about the shooting was reassurance that Steve Kerr would eventually tonight, at one point, give us a powerful statement on the topic considering he himself has felt that loss. And my god was this beautiful. Prayers to the families and their loved ones. This has to stop.

    • Yea it would be better if he hadn't protested security guards in schools just months prior

    • That's a sad statement.

  • Thank you Coach Kerr for speaking up and my condolence to the family of the victim.

  • I always have respect for Steve Kerr 💯👊🏾

    • 0.0 RESPECT FOR STEVE KERR. I don't respect ignorance.

    • @Mano Why don't you respect others?

    • Why?

  • This made me cry 😢 I salute you coach Kerr 🫡

  • I have to give this NBA coach a lot of respect. He's supposed to truth about the real issue in this country with gun control law.

  • For those that don’t know about Coach Steve Kerr he lost his father to gun violence. I think think this tragedy hits home to Steve Kerr b/c he can relate to the families involved this horrible tragedy!

  • We, people from the other side of the world are sick and tired of these kind of news. Thank you Steve Kerr.

    • @Peter Zin Thats the problem. Its not about protection its about "i want my guns"

    • @Harry Foxley yeah I know, I was just playing along with the logic of what was said by Barbie

  • I love and respect Steve Kerr even more now.

    • @albundy06 I understand but really - how easy is it for anyone to get a fire-arm? I think people who feel they need one to protect themselves and their families should be able to get one (after a background check ofc). But (and again - I am not American) - we hear that pretty much anyone can get a gun or even assault rifle in the US very easily - even online! Is this true?

    • @Pablo Cabrera No. You don't get respect for that. Not one bit.

    • @yomamma2424 Very true - but is it about taking away the guns or simply requiring more stringent background checks? I am not American btw.

  • Pure raw emotion!… what a class act of a guy!…. He’s clearly devastated by this even though he’s not even directly impacted by any of the recent events…. When it comes to children all bets are off… I hope they play this in the Senate!

  • Thank you for speaking up for us Steve 😭💔

  • Respect to you, Steve Kerr!

  • Thank you, Coach, for being the voice of the people. Your direction, your anger, and your poignancy spoke to the rage inside me.

    • @Politik Ion *he literally stated it in the video.*

    • And what comes out of this emotion...what is the solution?

  • The world needs more people like Kerr. Sensible, empathic, caring and passionate.

  • You couldn't have asked for a more passionate and frankly real response and plea. You can hear all the emotion and heartbreak in his words. And he is absolutely right in all that he said

  • Needs to be said. Well done Steve Kerr!

    • @Trey Beggs preach

    • @darth nader we found the Q dip! Amend the 2nd! Human rights before gun rights!

    • 0.0 RESPECT FOR STEVE KERR. I don't respect ignorance.

  • We need more people like Steve Kerr.

    • Yes we do! Much respect to Steve Kerr.

    • @maherk22 fyi he was the president of the university

    • @Zachary Steve's father was a teacher and was shot dead while doing his job, so he's talking out of his own experience.

  • Good man…Coach……you said it all for us. This guy is good person and a patriot!

  • Thank you for speaking up Steve Kerr! “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9

  • this is why i love this dude hes always just such a real warmhearted guy. others would call that being sensitive

  • This man’s heart has always been in the right place. Common sense should be more common

  • Respect for speaking up Steve Kerr💯👏🏽

  • Always admire Steve Kerr both in and out the court

  • Thank you Steve Kerr for speaking the truth.

  • Absolutely the voice of the nation today. Thank you for give us a loud voice. Enough is enough.

    • voice of the nation? dude most of the amiericans love their guns ahahahahaha

  • Thank you for using this platform to bring attention to this matter! Courage!

  • So much respect for Steve Kerr. This is all facts!!!!!! 🙏🏼😢

  • We need more men like this, well said my brother.

  • This is why I love Steve Kerr! The heart of this man...

  • Steven Kerr with the most passionate and important press conference in NBA history.

    • @Scott F 🙄 here we go.

    • What some communist take on gun control?

    • I don't know about most important one in history but is definitely a important one.

  • great speech. respect for steve kerr

  • So very very important that someone like you who has a world stage spoke up!! Thank you Steve- Encinitas loves you right along with the rest of the world. This has to stop ✋🏻!!!! No more kids or human lives need to be lost to this kind of violence. Please senators- represent the people- not yourself. Stand up!!! Do the right thing. Act together if that makes you more secure to do the right thing- pathetic but you all are just followers. Do better!

  • So heartbreaking. I don't blame him from being very upset. Great job coach

    • @Joe R wdym "you must be on the left"?

    • @🔥Taylors Fights🔥 You must be on the left👎👎👎

    • @🔥Taylors Fights🔥 did u listen to what he just said???

    • What you mean don't blame him everyone should feel like this

  • Thank you for speaking out! Hopefully more people follow your lead.

  • Thank you Steve Kerr for your strong words 👍🏼

  • What a speech coach Kerr I fully agree with you sir I'm tired of these senseless killings as well it needs to stop and the white house needs to do something about it. My prayers go out to the families that lost their loved ones in that terrible school shooting in Texas yesterday.

  • Held hostage by 50 senators I felt that Steve Kerr

  • Love you Steve Kerr, thank you for speaking up for what is only right!

    • 0.0 RESPECT FOR STEVE KERR. I don't respect ignorance.

    • WRONG

  • Thank you Steve Kerr... much respect for standing up on what is right!...in your faces Senators!😠

    • @darth nader hey man there are some comments you missed replying to

    • 0.0 RESPECT FOR STEVE KERR. I don't respect ignorance.

  • Much, much respect for this man. Keep up the agenda for gun control 💯💯🫶🏻

  • Finally! An appropriate response by someone about the massacre. When I hear other people talk about it, I wonder at how numbed out they are. I see their calmness and think, "My God, it's already too late for this country - they've become numb..." Mr. Kerr is spot on regarding this. Our children are safer in Ukraine than in the United States for God's sake. WAKE UP AMERICA!

  • he was fired up. Respect to Steve

    • @darth nader don't care didn't ask

    • 0.0 RESPECT FOR STEVE KERR. I don't respect ignorance.

  • Coach Steve Kerr,all the respect for you Sir . My condolences to the victims families... Enough! So 😭 sad ..

  • watching this video 12 hours after hearing about, on my life this is amazing. Steve has a better understanding of the whole world than most americans do

  • Steve is a real man and leader! God bless him!

  • Steve's always been a great man, and he's completely right. Now if only the other coaches from NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL would all do the same maybe they'll listen.. maybe

    • @道 stakes aren’t high enough for him yet to take it personally

    • and where is MJ???

  • God bless those innocent children that lost their lives and the injured. My utmost condolences to the teaches that passed on. I cannot imagine what the parents directly effected are going through. I have a young family. This really hits home. I believe there has to be serious change to the US gun laws. And also more screening of individuals like Steve was mentioning. My prayers and thoughts are with those little children🙏

  • Good for Steve. I feel for our southern neighbours. I really hope something changes for you before too many innocent people are killed again 🇨🇦❤️🇺🇸

    • @Sarah S well I recommend my province Prince Edward Island. We're by far the smallest but also the safest. We're pretty isolated but in a good way. We're also very welcoming of pretty much anyone. It's a great place to raise a family

    • @Zachary When u come for mine you better bring yours

    • @Sarah S yeah during COVID they treated them like children

    • A lot of people are talking about heading to Canada. It’s pretty hopeless here.

  • I don't exactly feel anything anymore when most politicians talk but I always do whenever people like Steve Kerr (and Popovich) do.

    • Common sense tends to have a contagious effect (for the better)

  • You have just earn my respect 100%. Steve Kerr i thank u for that

  • This is not the first time I have heard him say this but he is so right

  • These ghouls in office exist outside of society. As long as they can sleep safely at night knowing they and their families are safe, things will never change. The only legislation they are quick to pass is anything that protects themselves. We need people with a platform like Steve Kerr to call this out. All your favorite are gonna give thoughts and prayers, we need more than that. Cause the rest of us are powerless in this. An overwhelming majority want some form of gun control and we can't even get our elected officials to discuss it.

  • Thank you Steve Kerr, this is bigger than a game and it needs to matter to people enough to make a real change

    • What "real" change?

  • Well said, Steve.

  • I understand Steve’s pain because his dad died in Lebanon due to a shooting And now we got shootings in schools everywhere which is bad And these politicians are just playing with people they need to do action rather than playing democratic vs republic

    • His dad didnt due to shooting, his dad got assassinated which is different in mu opinion.

    • Maybe stop voting for the same two parties over and over again? Just a thought

    • Amen brother 🍻🤘

  • God Bless You Steve Kerr ! ! !

  • It’s so challenging to understand the true value of life. Unfortunately most of the time it takes losing someone tragically or extremely close..but we have got to find a way. Sadly I think this is a bigger problem that “background checks” or “gun control” will solve completely

  • That is true the governor's needed do more for our kids and for us here in the states and I give a lot of respect to Kerr for speaking out on something like this and hope and pray his voice say something

    • Armed Cops in every school. Obama kids school had a whole department. My kids elementary has a Deputy. That's just a deterrent. Should be at least two.

    • What specific laws should change? What should the Governor do? People put these comments in and then don’t understand the consequences of whatever action they are asking for (if they have even thought it though).

  • Love you Steve I'm with you ✊🏿💯

  • THANK YOU STEVE KERR 💯 YOU'RE THE MAN BROTHER

  • Way to go Steve,Thank you thank you thank you 1 million times thank you to Steve Kerr,

  • GOD BLESS STEVE KERR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Huge respect for Steve

  • Gun laws are messed up in USA. It needs to change. Salute to Steve Kerr 🙏🙏🙏

  • As an outsider from the U.K. I find it staggering that guns are so easy to obtain in America with limited checks. Moving words from Steve Kerr who clearly is passionate about the subject, RIP to all the little one’s who lost their lives due to evil. I hope America can make progress and these senseless shootings can become a thing of the past

    • @Quinn Denver Good for you.

    • @Robin are you slow? Obviously it is ideal for combat as it strikes a balance between factors. it can be fired out of a lightweight auto loading rifle, provides adequate stopping power, and the operator can use high capacity magazines and carry more ammo than full power rifle cartridges. You got some room temp iq for sure.

    • @Quinn Denver oohhhh so its smaller than 1800s hunting rifles 🤣🤣🤣🤣so again how is it so deadly

    • @Robin5.56 is an intermediate rifle cartridge that was developed in the late 1970s by FN. it’s parent case the .223 was developed in the late 50’s. What’s does the 1800s have to do with it

    • @Knowledge Seeker I guarantee I know more about guns than you buddy

  • Blessed are those who have a voice and the courage to use it. As if I didn't already highly respect this man. Now it is left to the senators to act... move... stop thinking of the power they are trying to hold on to.

    • @Tora Chan Really? So the marches for BLM, folks like George Flyd, Trayvon Martin, Stop Asian Hate and so on don't count as people who had the courage to use their voice? Instead of agreeing with what Steve Kerr said like all other comments I've read so far, you'd rather get on here and challenge me for praising him for his courage to speak up using his status and platform?

    • How about if people with courage used their voice to speak opinions you don’t agree with? Would you be just as supportive of THEM using their voice, or do you only feel this way when someone is saying things you agree with?

  • I pray to God that the NBA doesnt find a way to fine him for his choice of words. Much respect to.you Steve Kerr..

  • Steve Kerr should definitely be a tough as nails, but caring school principal. His passion is second to none.

  • Steve Kerr is a hero. He's got my respect forever now after this.

    • 0.0 RESPECT FOR STEVE KERR. I don't respect ignorance.

  • Well said coach Kerr, well said!
