“Get off your ass and do something!” Slapped Gregg Popovich, coach of the Spurs to Texas politicians at the memorial Stand By Uvalde in San Antonio.
Almost two weeks after the mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, people from all over Texas reunited at Travis Park in San Antonio to remember the 21 victims and talk about gun control policies.
Gregg Popovich, the head coach of the beloved San Antonio Spurs, was one of the speakers at the event. With bitterness and anger, he questioned how many lives would take to get stricter gun policies.
“They work for us [the politicians]. The majority of us want them to do something about the gun laws, and they don’t do it because they care more about their power, their position, and their money than they do our children.” He stressed.
The Spurs team will wear the orange shirt during National Gun Violence Week. Greg Popovich also encouraged the people of Texas to vote to prevent any other tragedy like the Uvalde Shooting.
Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke shook hands with him after his speech.
