Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has joined several other athletes in calling for gun reform amid the recent mass shootings in the United States.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Burrow was asked if he and his Bengals teammates had conversations about the gun-related tragedies that happened over the past few weeks. In late May, 19 children and two teachers were killed at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas after a shooter opened fire using a semi-automatic rifle.

Burrow, in response, expressed his strong opinion on the matter and highlighted the need to have stricter regulations when it comes to gun control. He then urged politicians to do their job and make sure that such tragedies will never happen again.

“With everything that’s going on, if you’re not gonna outlaw everything, you’ve gotta at least make it harder to get those crazy guns that everybody’s using,” the Bengals QB said, per Ben Baby of ESPN. “I don’t think you should be able to just walk in there and buy one. You gotta be able to go through a rigorous process to be able to buy something like that I think.

“So hopefully, the people that get paid to make those decisions figure that out. My job is to play football, but hopefully the politicians can figure that one out.”

As mentioned, aside from Joe Burrow, several other athletes have also called for gun control in the wake of the devastating shooting. NBA star and Los Angeles Lakers leader LeBron James has been vocal on Twitter about the need for some sort of gun reform, while both the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors joined hands to campaign to end gun violence during the Finals.

Hopefully as more and more people speak out, authorities will feel the pressure to take action sooner rather than later.
