Knicks C Joakim Noah spoke on Monday about the issue of gun violence, the morning after the deadliest mass shooting in United States history took place at a country music festival on the Las Vegas strip.
"It's very sad and condolences to everybody who is affected," Noah said, according to Ian Begley of ESPN. "It's a tragedy. Just the wrong people with their hands on automatic weapons."
"When you start talking about gun violence, you're just a liberal idiot, you know? It is an issue," Noah said. "There's nothing wrong with being critical about your country. Especially when you love your country, this country's done so much for me. I love this country a lot but there's nothing wrong with being aware and understanding that there's definitely some issues."
The shooting in Las Vegas, where a 64-year-old gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, has so far left 58 dead and at least 515 injured.
