At one point, LeBron James was arguably one of the most popular athletes in America – if not the world.
But he has squandered his platform by pushing a woke agenda on basketball fans – leaving many sports fans saying, “Shut up and play.”
And now, the NBA legend is leaving his lane once again, demanding law-abiding citizens give up their guns.
Democrats are always pushing their propaganda
Former Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama and former Democrat Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel is infamous for admitting, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
The Obama/Biden White House took those words to heart and used them to shape how they governed.
And for nearly three years now, the Biden Administration has also lived by that dubious motto.
But it seems LeBron James is also following Emanuel’s advice.
Instead of taking Michael Jordan’s, “Republicans buy sneakers too,” approach, King James is ignoring the facts and using a recent tragedy to call for the full court press to steal your right to bear arms.
LeBron James spreads lies in attempt to disarm you
James’ time on the basketball court may be winding down – with retirement talk surrounding his every move on the court.
However, the four-time NBA MVP’s forays into politics are getting started.
And with statements like this, there’s no question which party he’s playing for.
Just days after a crazed criminal crept onto the University of Nevada Las Vegas campus to carry out a killing spree, James is offering up the exact failed solutions the Democrat Party has been championing for decades now.
“It just goes back to what I said before about guns in America — I think it’s such a longer conversation, but we keep dealing with the same story, this same conversation every single time it happens, and it just continues to happen,” James said foreshadowing his tired answer. “The ability to get a gun, the ability to do these things over and over and over, and there’s been no change, is literally ridiculous. It makes no sense that we continue to lose innocent lives, on campuses, schools, at shopping markets and movie theaters and all type of stuff. It’s ridiculous.”
The 19-time NBA All-Star is calling for gun control laws violating every American’s Second Amendment rights.
However, the UNLV campus already has 100% gun control – and it didn’t stop the shooting.
UNLV, and all college campuses in the state of Nevada, is already a “gun-free zone.”
If laws against murder won’t stop someone from killing people, why do Leftists believe a law against owning a gun will make the criminal think twice?
But James’ wasn’t finished passing on his inaccurate information.
“The fact that we haven’t changed anything — it’s actually been easier to be able to own a firearm,” James claimed. “It’s stupid.”
What’s stupid is asserting that politicians have made it easier to own a firearm.
The mandated point-of-sale background check system–the National Instant Criminal Background Checks System (NICS) is still in place.
Several blue states have passed regulations making it either more difficult or more expensive to own a gun.
And last year, 15 RINO U.S. Senators caved to President Biden’s demands and compromised away gun rights by passing a so-called “Red Flag” law, adding a waiting period of between 3 and 10 days, and additional background investigations for people under 21 to purchase a firearm and expanding the definition of a “relationship” for the purposes of the enforcement of the laws to include, basically, anyone one who has had a fling in the past.
Murder on the UNLV campus
The criminal killing spree that promoted James’ foolish comments happened last week on the UNLV campus.

The killer senselessly took the lives of three people and critically injured a fourth.
Las Vegas police later found the shooter already deceased.
As expected, instead of looking into new policies that may protect students – like arming trained teachers and removing supposed “gun-free zone” restrictions – Leftists, like President Biden and Democrats in Congress, immediately used the tragedy to once again call for laws taking your guns away.
LeBron Has State of Art Security and Private Police Force
The NBA fan blog, Bashabear Basketball page, LeBron James, keeps a state-of-the-art private security system for him and his family and his own private police force to keep him safe.
