Sports World Reacts To Steve Kerr's Powerful Message

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr gave an impassioned plea to US politicians to institute stricter gun laws.

His plea came in the wake of a shooting at an elementary school in Texas that left 18 children and one teacher dead

This isn't the first time Kerr has taken to the microphone following a shooting

where he pleaded with the U.S. government and he's clearly frustrated.

"When are we going to do something?" he asked.

"I’m tired. I’m so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there.

I’m so tired. Excuse me. I’m sorry. I’m tired of the moments of silence. Enough."

It didn't take long for his comments to start going viral.

Most of those on social media are applauding Kerr for his message.

"Steve Kerr's father was murdered by a gunman 38 years ago in Beirut.

If only more people--particularly those 50 Senators he is referring to--were as outraged tonight as he is

college basketball analyst Seth Davis said.

Kerr's message is leaving a lasting impact tonight.
