Basketballers Say 'Enough' To Gun Violence In The Wake Of Latest U.S. Mass Shooting

The LA Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks made an emotional plea to end gun violence before their NBA match on Saturday night.

The two sides stood for a minute's silence to remember the victims of the Thousand Oaks nightclub massacre, with each player wearing a shirt bearing the message 'Enough' on the front.

On the back, the name of each victim who lost their life in the shooting that left 12 dead on Wednesday.

"Enough is #ENOUGH," the Clippers said on Twitter.

"We stand together and remember those lost in the tragic shooting in Thousand Oaks."

"A moment of silence for the 12 people who lost their lives in the Thousand Oaks shooting earlier this week. Today’s warmup shirts pay tribute to them," the Bucks said.
