TMZ Flashback: O.J.'s Gun Moves

9/17/2007 12:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Back in 1979, O.J. Simpson was about to move into the infamous Rockingham mansion -- which has since been completely torn down -- and didn't want a moving company handling his trophies. So he asked his neighbor for a little help, and then took the time to pose for these curious photos.

The neighbor helped O.J. load his trophies, including his Heisman, into a 1978 Chevy pickup, and Simpson posed with this Belgian machine gun that he also didn't trust to the moving company.

When asked why he had the gun, O.J. said, "Because Muhammad Ali and I have received death threats."

He was about as non controversial and All-American as anybody could ever be perceived in 1979. It is strange that he would be receiving death threats - back then.

Imagine what it is like now?!

OJ is a piece of human debris that should've never been allowed to walk the streets after he slaughtered Nicole and Ron. This lunatic is actually smirking in his LVPD mug shots. Someone should've done to him what he did to Nicole and Ron years ago. Perhaps he'll finally get put in prison where he belongs and then who cares what happens to him by the other inmate mongrals.

"Strange that he was getting death threats back then"???? What color is the sky in your world miss universe. Hes a succesfull black man who has always had an affinity for white women. Thats reason alone for any of the good ole' boys south of the mason dixon line, or some of your more "devout" Christians to want to put his lights out.
