After 13 people were killed in an attack at a Southern California bar last Wednesday, NBA players are speaking up.

This past weekend players all across the league wore black t-shirts with the victims’ names on the back and the word “ENOUGH” written in white on the front.

Both the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers wore the shirts for pre-game warm-ups prior to games against the Milwaukee Bucks, and Atlanta Hawks, respectively. (RELATED: Thousand Oaks Shooter’s Motives May Have Been Gun Control)

Perhaps more than other leagues, the NBA has never been shy about their political activism and these protests had the support of NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

The shooter appeared to violate California law by purchasing his gun in the first place.

California is home to some of the nation’s strictest gun laws.
