Steve Kerr, head coach of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, thinks that the Bill of Rights is ‘outdated.’ He also thinks that lots of people own automatic weapons. Steve Kerr is very confused.[/caption]NBA coach Steve Kerr rails against ‘totally outdated Bill of Rights’
Coach Steve Kerr of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors has some opinions on guns and the Bill of Rights:
It’s easier to get a gun than it is a driver’s license. And it’s insane. And as somebody who has had a family member shot and killed, it just devastates me every time I read about this stuff, like what happened in Orlando, and then it’s even more devastating to see the government just cowing to the NRA and going to this totally outdated Bill of Rights, right to bear arms, you know, if you want to own a musket, fine–but come on.
Mr. Kerr also says that people are carrying “these automatic weapons.” So he’s obviously got a lot of things factually wrong.
But the most telling part of his diatribe is his claim that the Bill of Rights is “outdated.” The idea that basic human rights can become “outdated” says an awful lot about Mr. Kerr.
He obviously is not a fan of the 2nd Amendment. I wonder what the reaction would be if an NBA head coach claimed that the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were outdated. (Just kidding. Murdoc doesn’t wonder.)
