VIA| Celebrities were asked about gun violence in the wake of the shooting massacre in San Bernardino Wednesday, and NFL legend Deion Sanders replied that guns aren’t the problem.
Guns aren’t “picking up themselves and pulling triggers on [their] own,” Sanders responded. “I think people are doing that. It says more about people than it says about guns.”
“I’m not an advocate of ignorance or violence whatsoever,” he continued, “but we really need to look at people.”
Sanders added that inner-city gun violence occurs “on a daily basis” and that solving that problem is as important as figuring out how to stop gun violence outside the inner city.
He was the third of four celebrities interviewed in the below clip. Sanders followed iconic former boxer Sugar Ray Leonard who said gun violence “has to be eradicated, it has to be stopped. It’s happening too often with younger kids for no apparent reasons, it seems like. I don’t know. My heart just goes out.”
