‘It’s Easier to Get a Gun Than Baby Formula’

After his team’s loss to the Mavericks in Game 4 on Tuesday, Warriors guard Damion Lee was asked about the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, earlier that day. His answer caught some attention for the comparison he made.

“It’s just sad. Obviously everyone saw Steve’s [Kerr] pregame presser. Those are my exact same sentiments,” he said. “It’s sad the world that we live in. We need to reform that. Guns shouldn’t be as easily accessible … like it’s easier to get a gun than baby formula right now. That’s unbelievable in this country that we live in…”

Golden State coach Steve Kerr used his entire pregame presser Tuesday to address the shooting that left 19 children and two adults dead and pleaded for change. He said there were “50 senators, right now, who refuse to vote on HR8.” The bill would implement background check requirements for firearms, and it was passed by the House in February 2019, per Congress.gov.

“So I ask you, Mitch McConnell, I ask all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence and school shootings and supermarket shootings. I ask you, ‘Are you going to put your own desire for power ahead of the lives of our children and our elderly and our churchgoers?’ Because that’s what it looks like,” Kerr said.

Say “Amen”, brother!

    The answer,, of course, is “yes”, “Moscow” Mitch (I just can’t let that one go) and the GOP are going to choose personal power over the Ives of our children. It looks that way because that’s how it is.

    Ted Cruz is telling people the problem is “doors” in the schools. I don’t remember “doors” being any particular problem when I was going to school, AND, btw, they were frequently unlocked or even open! Wow! What a concept for a school!! The GOP is training you – that’s right, “training” you, brainwashing you, whatever – into thinking that this is just he way it is now; get used to it because it’s never going to end.

    You have a choice of course; you can vote this scum out of Congress and we can change the gun laws and move on, or we can keep sending our kids to school and hoping they return home – alive. It’s all in our power.

    “While public outrage grows in the United States over a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas that left 21 dead last week, the victims’ relatives may never get their day in court against police, school authorities and gunmakers who enjoy special legal immunity that may protect them from being sued, according to attorneys.
    As in past school shootings, families of the 19 students and two teachers will likely find that any lawsuits will run into legal challenges that do not exist for shootings in the workplace or other private property.” https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2022/6/1/analysis-police-guns-and-schools-protected-from-lawsuits-over-texas-shooting
