Count Rick Pitino among basketball coaches supporting gun control.
The Louisville coach was asked Friday about his reaction to Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim's comments on Monday assailing the nation's gun culture following last week's school shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn. Pitino agreed with Boeheim, and said he couldn't understand why people wouldn't support gun control.
On consecutive days, Boeheim and Winthrop coach Pat Kelsey used postgame news conferences to express sympathy for victims' families and stress the need for reforms to avoid another tragedy.
Pitino followed by adding that society doesn't need guns.
He says, ``The fact that every single person does not want it would be a mystery. This is not the beginning of American civilization where we need guns like it's the wild, wild West.''
