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.”
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.
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.
