Basketball player LeBron James, like many celebrities, is a gun control hypocrite.
Back in 2015 LeBron told the AP the following:
“There’s no room for guns. Obviously you’re not going to be able to take every gun out, I don’t know how you can do that. There’s so many around now, today. But if there’s some stipulations behind it or some penalties, some big time penalties or rules or regulations about carrying firearms, legal or illegal, people will second-guess themselves.”
After the Parkland shooting earlier this year, LeBron said the following:
“It’s a tragedy and we’ve seen these schools and these tragedies happen in America and there’s been no change to gun control. We have a kid who wasn’t legal — legally not able to go to get a beer at a bar, but could go buy a AR-14 or an AR-15? Like, is that? How? It doesn’t make sense. And I’m not saying that he should be legal to go buy a beer, but I’m saying, how is it possible that we can have minors to go buy a gun? I don’t have the answer to it.“
FYI: The Parkland shooter was not a minor, he was 19 years old.
There’s been a rash of burglaries at Hollyweird homes so LeBron is beefing up his security.
As reported by TMZ:
“Bron has at least 10 armed security personnel at the home — including off-duty police officers. We’re told the NBA’s security team is also involved in the security plans.”
Must be nice to afford private security, you hypocrite.
