LeBron James Comes Out in Favor of Gun Control, then his Hypocrisy is Revealed

NBA star LeBron James weighed in on the Obama lie-filled politicization of the shooting at Umpqua Community College with a push for gun control without any mention of the fact that the shooter targeted Christians. James jumped on the typical liberal bandwagon to have “common sense” gun control for safety’s sake which is their typical mantra following an act of evil by a madman who happened to use a gun. In the words of Obama’s former righthand man, Rahm “Deadfish” Emanuel, “Never let a tragedy go to waste.”

But, James must have forgotten a few videos that he made last year at a Miami gun range which reveals what a true, anti-freedom, bandwagon hypocrite he is.

After the assassinations of Christians at Umpqua Community College, James spoke with the AP about violence perpetuated by criminals with guns and said,”Four kids under the age of five or six years old have been shot and killed or very badly injured, there’s no room for that. There’s no room for guns, first of all, but then for violence toward kids or anybody. I see the news go across my phone and I’m sitting there in front of my three kids, so it automatically just hit me.”

James, who returned this past season to his hometown of Cleveland to play for the Cavaliers, continued,”It’s not just in Cleveland, it’s the whole nation that goes through this as well. We all hurt from it.”

After admitting that he understood there was no way all guns could ever be removed from the streets, he demonstrated a dangerous level of support for tyranny with a desire to penalize those who have guns, either legally or illegally. James hypothesized, “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.”

Unfortunately for James, what happens on the Internet stays on the Internet and his escapades with the very guns he came out against were captured in both pictures and video.

In January 2014, when James was still with the Miami Heat, he visited Lock and Load Miami to participate in the gun range’s “Machine Gun Experience.” Based upon the videos and smiling pictures, James thoroughly enjoyed that experience.

But, he didn’t stop there.

After his machine gun experience was over, James did not return to his car shaken at the experience of firing the powerful weapons. No. Instead, he posed with staff from the gun range smiling big as he held his paper target which showed his bullet handiwork.

King James, how LeBron is referred to in the world of basketball, is a marksman.

He’s also a raging hypocrite.
