Professional sports leagues in America have been taken over by the radical Left.

Most athletes are afraid to push back against the Left’s narrative out of fear of losing their lucrative contracts.

But one of the top field goal kickers in NFL history just dropped a truth bomb on Democrats about preventing gun violence in America.

Three-time Super Bowl Champion

Harrison Butker is the kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs.

He is second in NFL history in career field goal percentage with 89.1

The three-time Super Bowl Champion recently spoke about the tragic shooting that occurred during the Chief’s Super Bowl parade in February. 

On February 15, a shooting took place during the Super Bowl parade that left one dead and nearly two dozen others injured.

Three men are currently facing federal gun charges for the shooting.

During an interview with EWTN News In Depth, Butker recalled the deadly shooting and offered his perspective on gun violence.

“I had to do a lot of thinking about what took place at the parade,” Butker began. 

Laid to rest in Butker’s jersey

Disc jockey Lisa Lopez-Galvan was wearing Butker’s jersey when she was shot and killed by one of the gunmen.

Butker even provided her family with an autographed jersey so she could be laid to rest in it.

“I never set out to be an NFL kicker,” Butker said. “I never set out to have this platform, I never thought I’d be having this success in the NFL that I am.  I never wanted to be this public person that people look to see what their ideas are, what their stances are on different subjects, but because of that, it has given me a great following of people like this amazing woman.”

Butker said “faith” was the most important thing in Lopez-Galvan’s life.

“It’s the faith,” Butker said. “It was the most important thing in her life, it’s the most important thing in my life. And to be able to receive that encouragement, that love, even though I never met her, I heard from her family how much she was encouraged by me and loved all my work, it’s just very encouraging for me to continue on the path that I’m on and to be never unwavering in my beliefs.”

Butker: “Guns are not the issue”

However, unlike Democrats, Butker refused to blame firearms and call for gun control laws.

“I know that gun violence was a big discussion, but at the end of the day, this is degenerative violence, and it should not be occurring,” Butker said. 

Instead of gun control, he stressed the need for “strong fathers” and good masculine role models.

“I think we need strong fathers in the home,” Butker said. “We need men that are leading, that are setting good examples, that are teaching the young men in our society that violence is not the way to handle our disputes.”

“It’s very unfortunate what happened,” Butker continued. “Unfortunately, many, many children were injured, and a beautiful young lady was killed over someone getting offended and turning to violence to handle that dispute. It’s so sad.” 

He once again stressed that guns are not to blame for the tragic shooting.

“I don’t think guns are the issue,” Butker remarked. “I think we need fathers in the home that are being great examples for our youth.”

Butker makes an excellent point.

Guns are not the issue.

A lack of morality is the problem America faces.
