More than sports: NBA coach calls out politicians, Trump, NRA after Florida shooting

The head coach of the Golden State Warriors doesn't think politicians care about school shootings.

"Nothing has been done," Steve Kerr told reporters Wednesday. "It doesn't seem to matter to our government that children are being shot to death day after day."

When asked for his thoughts regarding the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, he said it was "demoralizing" the government hasn't taken action.

Kerr criticized the NRA for its lobbying, as well as President Donald Trump for his desire to build a wall and other local politicians.

The Warriors coach has personal experience with losing a loved one to gun violence: his father was murdered by unknown gunmen in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1984.

This is not the first time Kerr has spoken out against Trump, gun violence or politicians.
