OAKLAND — In light of the deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, Warriors guard Stephen Curry condemned the actions of the shooter, while pushing for tighter gun laws.
“You send your thoughts and prayers,” Curry said Friday afternoon. “It’s a tragic situation that hurts your heart when you think about kids going to school and being safe.”
On Friday morning, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis opened fire at the school, killing 10 people and wounding 10. According to authorities, the teenager was armed with a shotgun and revolver, owned by his father.
Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul, whose team will face the Warriors on Sunday in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, also spoke about the tragedy in Santa Fe, which is about an hour southeast of Houston.
“First and foremost, aside from the playoffs going on — which is minor compared to what is taking place down in Santa Fe — our prayers go out to the victims and the families having to deal with that situation,” Paul said. “We have a lot of fan support there. Those people come out and support us night in, night out. This (basketball) is minor compared to what those people are dealing with.”
Paul added, “It’s scary that’s becoming a norm here. We got to do something about it. Yeah, I can’t imagine something like that taking place with my kids.”

Curry agreed with Paul’s sentiments.
“I’m glad that CP said something about it,” he said. “It is an issue that is way bigger than basketball and way more important than basketball and something that needs to be addressed. Hopefully, that happens. I feel like a broken tape recorder every time you see a situation like this happen. It needs to be addressed, for sure.”
