Chris Paul is speaking out about the Texas school shooting that happened roughly 35 miles from Houston on Friday ... and he's calling for change to prevent similar tragedies from happening again.
“First and foremost, aside from the playoffs going on, which is minor compared to what is taking place down in Santa Fe," Paul said Friday morning at Rockets practice.
"Our prayers going out to the victims and the families having to deal with that situation."
FYI, 10 people were killed and several more injured at Santa Fe HS when a shooter opened fire inside the building.
