“Today we are sending this letter to every member of Congress asking them to act and help end gun violence,” the document reads.

It’s a sacred responsibility

Team USA members explain that they understand that athletes and athletes should not speak out on political issues, but agree that the safety of the country’s children is a “sacred duty”, so they decided to use their platform as public figures to prevent and advocate change, otherwise they would be irresponsible.

Uvalde, Texas

As you remember, there have been several mass shootings in the country, many of them committed by underage teenagers, the latest case was in Uvalde, Texas, where a teenager entered a school with machine guns and opened fire on students at the school. 19 children were killed, 2 teachers and 17 others were injured. This was the most recent attack, but they seem to be happening more often.

USMNT Statement

“Families in Uvalde, Texas are burying 19 children and two teachers. Please stop choosing fundraisers over children’s lives. Please stop being guided by people with no idea who vote for gun law reform or refuse to talk about it in the first place. Do whatever it takes to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
