Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Texas School Shooting: Warriors’ Steve Kerr Calls For Gun Control” – below is their description.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr gave a passionate plea for gun control after the fatal mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Kerr said he didn’t want to talk about basketball during a press conference in Dallas.
LeBron James made no effort to hide his anger. Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics, a young father, called the news “devastating.”
The sports world reacted swiftly Tuesday to the news of an 18-year-old gunman opening fire at an elementary school in Uvalde and killing at least 19 children.
It was the deadliest shooting at a US grade school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, almost a decade ago.
“I’m tired of the moments of silence. Enough. There’s 50 senators right now who refuse to vote on HR8, which is a background check rule that the House passed a couple years ago. It’s been sitting there for two years. And there’s a reason they won’t vote on it: to hold onto power,” Kerr said.
He spoke before his team faced the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel

In This Story: Vote
Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.
In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
