NBA star LeBron James loves his family, naturally enough. And when bad guys recently targeted them, he took steps to keep them safe. Specifically, the Los Angeles Lakers dribbler brought in some heavy-duty firepower – a whole team of armed guards. He’s taking “every possible measure” to protect his loved ones, as would anyone.

Meanwhile, as far as the little people are concerned, LeBron says “there is no room for guns.”  And he wants to increase penalties for carrying firearms – “legal or illegal.”

LeBron James Hires Armed Guards For His Family While Promoting Gun Control For Yours

Yes, the hypocrisy of gun control advocates like James, shooting a full-auto machine gun above, knows no bounds. Gun control for thee, but never for me. We’ve seen it plenty of times before. Civilian disarmament doyenne Shannon Watts is protected by armed guards, just like David “Camera” Hogg.

Incredibly, even Chicago’s anti-gun priest, Father Michael Pfleger, has armed guards. Of course, Pfleger claims he has no armed bodyguards. Yet despite Pfleger’s prevarications, one of his favorite bodyguards caught was arrested for carrying a gun without a license not long ago. Right on the steps of Fr. Pfleger’s church.

If anti-gunners didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any at all.

If gun control is such a noble pursuit, why don’t they practice what they preach? Why do they have to lie and conceal the truth if the cause of gun control is so righteous?

No doubt Shannon Watts, Alyssa Milano and David Hogg will claim they need armed good guys. Why? To protect them from violent, deplorable gun owners, of course. But they’re drinking too much of their own Kool-Aid. If gun owners were half as violent as they claim, logic dictates there would be no gun control advocates left.

So former Cleveland Cavaliers baller LeBron touts gun control for the little people while hiring a platoon of guards to patrol his palatial Los Angeles estate.

TMZ has the story.

LeBron James has beefed up security at his L.A. home in a major way — bringing a team of armed guards to patrol his house after learning he was targeted by a team of burglars.

As we previously reported … the LAPD arrested 4 people who had hit more than 24 homes of the rich and famous, including Yasiel Puig, Rihanna, Christina Milian and others.

Cops say the bad guys had a list of 12 more celebrity targets — including LeBron, Matt Damon and Viola Davis.

The TMZ story goes on to read, “LeBron is taking the situation very seriously…and is taking every possible measure to protect his family.”

Don’t the rest of Americans deserve the same for our families?

While the NBA’s “King” might have the resources to pay ten or twelve armed guards to patrol his property, most of us don’t. Nor do we live in the ultra-high-end part of town.

In the end, LeBron James stands as yet another hypocritical celebrity hack, advocating that everyone – except his fellow elites, of course – live on the gun control plantation. He should shut up and dribble.

    Do WE deserve the same? Not according to the high and mighty and politicians, etc. The utter hypocrisy seems lost on them, or they see themselves as — I guess obviously — superior to us, in a very different world. Except when it comes to crime, they are not. Thus, THEIR guards and guns … This is a fight we need to always fight, because they will not stop coming for our guns, for OUR right to defend ourselves and our loves ones.

    Gee thanks mister. I can’t afford it on my salary.

      “Will Mr. LeBron pay for guards for my family?”
      If you listen to the grabbers, the answer is “Yes.”
      Those guards are called Law Enforcement Officers, or Police. These are the armed guards we rely on when we need their protection.
      Of course, they don’t see the hypocrisy of claiming they need the services of the guards 24/7 yet we can get along with a response time that ranges from 10-15 minutes to hours. To them, that’s OK because they are more important than we are.
      The real hypocrisy is that many of these people with 24/7 armed protection rail against those who think they are more important than everyone else.

        ~~ There’s a book: “Dial 0-1-1 And Die”, in which there’s about 2 court cases for every state wherein the courts have determined the cops are in NO way req’d to respond to a 9-1-1 call.
        Their job is NOT to prevent crime, but to investigate it after the fact.
        That they do respond is SOMETIMES a blessing, but as often NOT, and by that we can conclude the only time they prevent “crime” is when they shoot an innocent, usually unarmed person is when they “fear for their lives”, which I can understand, seeing

      I wonder why so many “gun owners” support Machine Gun ownership for rich people???
      But they don’t support Bump Stock ownership for poor people.

      Maybe they really don’t believe the Second Amendment is for protecting yourself from a tyrannical government. They think it’s only about hunting or Three Gun. And they really support the 1934 NFA law. They just won’t admit it in a public forum.

      It was Obama who sent thousands of select fire M16s to thousands of police departments all over the country.

        With me it all started with Reggie Jackson and the Yankees. He was signed to a multi million year contract. To do what??? Something up till then a guy like Willy Mays got what $50K from the Mets!!!!!!!!!!!! Same with Mantle etc. Maybe 50K was alot even then but millions for a kids game……No way.

          Mantle made a top salary of $100,000 in his prime. I don’t know what Mays or any of the others back then made, but it’s ridiculous that today’s players make millions and most are nowhere near as good as Mantle, Mays, etc. I know times and salaries change, but they have priced the “average” fan out of the sport.

    Shut up and dribble? Sounds to me as if he is already “dribbling” (down his chin). Moreover, he hired armed guards to protect his PROPERTY from burglars–not one word that they were ARMED burglars or that these were home invasion robberies.Most burglars break in when you are not there. I guess he doesn’t want to lose his championship rings, though why a safety deposit box or a really good safe won’t do escapes me.

  13. avatar Defens says:

    I’ve been contemplating how to craft some state legislation in Washington that would either ban armed security for individuals or their families outright, or make it so onerous to jump through the hoops that it would be nearly impossible to do. Our state constitution guarantees the right to bear arms in defense of oneself (the WA constitution is far less vague and much stronger than 2A in this respect) but goes on to state that this right in no way guarantees a right for people or corporations to employ private armies.

  14. avatar JR Pollock says:

    I stopped watching NBA thugs about 20 years before I stopped watching NFL thugs..

    I’d love to see a law passed that if you publicly advocate for gun control, and hire private security, you have to pay a “hypocrisy tax” of one million dollars, per armed guard, per eight hour shift.

    I know it would never pass, and possibly wouldn’t survive survive constitutional scrutiny, but one can wish.

      They can live in their self absorbed fantasy land but when their day of reckoning comes, which it will, it comes down to simple numbers of people and firearms, which is what they fear most. All the armed guards in the world will be useless at that point.

      1. avatar pod says:

        If the shit hits the fan, I doubt the armed guards are going to be hanging around the James estate. Those guys have families, or at the least, personal property that they would need to attend to. It’s the same idea with police. The other shoe drops, the cops are staying home protecting theirs…

    But it’s the black unelected leadership and black government Bureau Rats and are the biggest block to Liberty in the black community. Malcolm X called Blacks like James “traitors to your Race”. And I say the same thing about these hypocrite race traitors.

        If the shoe fits wear it. If it doesn’t fit, then don’t worry about it.

        It’s very easy to criticize black people when they’re wrong. But for some reason when you try to criticize a white homosexual when they are wrong, all of a sudden it becomes wrong to criticize them.

      so he thinks that he deserves protection than you and I. just like Obama thought so etc.

      The data show that celebrities, sports figures, the wealty left who almost always have armed guards yet oppose your right ot have a firearm, and politicians are LESS not more likely to be victimized, so don;t say he is a bigger target, He is not.

      Only about 18% of criminal violence is with guns.
      Civilians with guns prevent about 8 times as many crimes as committed with guns.

      What LeBron james doesn’t care about in his selfishness and hypocrisy is for example a 5’1″ woman attacked by two guys, or the average person attacked by a knife wielding criminal. Why does he want the victims to be disarmed??

      1. avatar LazrBeam says:

        OK, stay with me, Frank. It’s because he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the 5’1″ woman being attacked by two guys or someone being attacked by a knife wielding criminal. You see, IT’S ALL ABOUT HIM. Class dismissed.

          In his eyes, because we can’t afford such things, we should just die, I guess.

          Similar situation in Japan actually. Firearms are de facto illegal over there. However, it’s no secret that the big industrialists have armed security.

    A year or two ago, Kim K answered the whole armed guards bit that we push. She claimed her bullyboys supported gun control and were “highly trained”.

    Now yeah, grant it, there’s definitely some ex-military or ex-SWAT guys making a great living doing private security, but the realistic thing is that private armed security personnel are no more well-trained than law enforcement for the most part. Basically their role is to be mass with a gun.

    Also, consider this, some of these guys choose to forgo the hassle of hiring trained professionals and just outsource the work to their “boys”.

    LeBron and the like are jokes though. They act as if their own lives are more valuable than ours. Hey LeBron – when you die, you’ll look just like I will when I die. In the end, we’re all worm food.

    ILake County Examiner: Lakeview, Oregon for Wednesday, February 18h, 2018

    In Agreement

    I’m in 100 percent solidarity and agreement with Sharon Fitzgerald’s Wednesday, Jan. 31 Lake County Examiner letter: “Boycott Super Bowl.” Lets call it for what it really is, “The Stupor Bowl!” If the football fanatics of America who maintain a meth type addiction to football, sports, and athletics would instead divert the same time, effort, and money (citizen activism) in holding our elected state legislators in Salem (Bolshevik legislators?) and our treasonous repeat offenders in Congress in Washington, D.C. accountable, we collectively could “take back” our state and republic!”

    Perhaps this addiction to sports is best confronted by Charlotte Iserbyt’s YouTube video: “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America.” No, football, sports, and athletics have absolutely no link to freedom, liberty, personal autonomy, safety and protection of community, and being an armed deterrent to criminal and outlaw activity. Historically what does though is the Second Amendment and private gun ownership. This is deliberately ignored, censored and concealed from the masses via our government controlled socialist public schools, colleges, universities, and academia who walk in lockstep with the establishment news media. Perhaps Thomas Jefferson stated it best:

    “A strong body makes a strong mind. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks.”
