Steve Kerr gets emotional during a press conference before the game addressing the massacre that left 18 children and 3 adults dead today at Robb Elementary School today in Uvalde, Texas. He challenged U.S. lawmakers to pass the H.R. 8, which would establish background check requirements for gun sales and more.

Kerr’s father, Malcolm Kerr was the president of the American University of Beirut. On January 18, 1984, Kerr was shot and killed by two gunmen outside his office. Steve Kerr was 19 years old at the time.
