Miami Heat Pre-Game Announcer ‘Urges’ Fans To Call Senators For Gun Reform

Videos by OutKick

The Miami Heat delivered a surprising message before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday following a moment of silence for the Uvalde, Texas victims.

Miami PA Michael Baiamonte urged viewers, to call their Senators in support of “commonsense gun laws.”


FTX Arena’s Jumbotron displayed contact information and encouraged fans to “let your voice be heard this fall.”

Baiamonte said, “The Heat urges you to contact your state’s senators by calling 202-224-3121 to leave a message demanding their support for commonsense gun laws. You can also make change at the ballot box. Visit to register and let your voice be heard this fall.”

One common talking point resurfaced by the media since the incident at Robb Elementary has been a call for gun reform and restrictions, a protest largely touted by Democrats like Beto O’Rourke.

Joining the media’s not-so-subtle opposition to Republican Senators, including Florida’s Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, the NBA fulfilled their share of grandstanding after turning the recent tragedy into political messaging.

ESPN’s pre-game coverage was no different.

Stephen A. Smith went on a tirade calling for all 50 Senators that oppose gun restrictions to be ousted for acting as “indentured servants to lobbyists.”

  1. And if they want gun control, then get an Amendment passed. Make their case to the American people. They won’t though, because the facts don’t support their narrative.

    How about funding for armed security at schools? How about stop glamorizing these shootings?

    Remember the people calling for this are the same people who wanted to defund and eliminate police. Never, ever vote Democrat.

  2. Murder is already against the law never stops these nut jobs and calling for more laws is just about political postering everyone knows more laws will not stop this kind of stuff never a peep about the atrocities in china against religious people including women and children .

  3. Of course. It’s not about fixing the problem. It’s about access and power for the people they favor, ie, it’s about voting Democrat, nothing more.

    You want to fix the problem? Figure out why these people are doing this. Attack the root of the problem. Secure the schools. Eliminate the Second Amendment – I don’t want that, but I concede it would likely help, and it’s what progressives actually want. But they won’t talk about any of that because it’s about winning elections not solving hard problems.
