Raiders Star in Shotgun Purchasing Formation

1/11/2010 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a photo of Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden purchasing multiple firearms at a gun shop in Arkansas this week -- but fear not, his agent says it's all 100% legit.

Raiders Star in Shotgun Purchasing Formation
McFadden, who played ball at the University of Arkansas, rolled into a Little Rock gun shop on Wednesday and purchased at least two firearms -- one of which is a shotgun -- along with camouflage gear and hunting supplies.

We spoke with McFadden's agent, who told us Darren is an "avid hunter and responsible gun collector." The agent added, "Darren holds a gun license and is legally permitted to buy guns in the state of Arkansas. Darren has also taken gun safety classes."

As far as we know, he doesn't play Bourré.

McFadden is no law abiding super hero poor black man football hero! He lucked into playing pro football but anyone that's from the hood knows what he's about. He should thank the U of A and Coach Nutt for getting him out of and covering all of his crap that he should be in jail for. Hey TMZ.. any footage of the bar fight in L.R. with is convicted felon brother? This article probably slowed down a drive by until everyone forgets that he bought guns.

What a story! A man walks into a gun store and buys a gun. OH MY GOD CAN YOU BELIVE IT? What's next, he's going to a fastfood joint and buys a hamburger? CALL THE PRESS!

SO WHAT! Millions of people have bought guns. Here in Amerika we're able to buy guns to protect outselves, go hunting, target practice for fun, etc.

This is so not a story!

I suspect his agent would not make a comment stating anything other than something in this thugs favor. Hurry up and have him pose w/his hunting license, slain deer and other hunting photos, or just photoshop him into some hunting pics. A thug is a thug is a thug. Being a pro athelete does not make you a role model and there is nothing racist about this.

So he is pretending to be a hunter from Arkansas just so he can get a gun and kill people huh?
Nope there's nothing racist about thinking that. LMAO!!!!!!!
Nope thats a perfectly logical assumption.
As a matter of fact all blacks are sneaky and just pretending they arent thugged out criminals.
Even black babies and grandmothers are either future thugs or did some thugging in the past.

Why would he be considered a thug? Because he is black and plays for the Oakland Raiders? Big deal. I am one of the biggest "Raider Haters" around. Believe me, I'd love a chance to jump on the Bash-A-Raider wagon but I don't see that this guy did anything "thuggish". If he has a license and has participated in all the required classes, he is allowed to exercise his 2nd amendment right.

Im a lil upset with the guy who seems to think mcfadden is some thug from the hood. He must never have seen where he is from. Its Called oak grove and is far from the hood. We all own guns here and are all hunters. Leave him alone he has his hunters safty and is goin about obtainin his guns the legal way. I dont give a crap if he owns 100 guns. 1)its his right 2) it part of growin up where we did 3) i no he will not hurt any one

Okay, its not like he just went and bought two hunting rifles. He bought a freakin oozie (sp?) and a shotgun. Yes you do have to have a permit to buy a semi-automatic weapon in arkansas and at least one gun purchased was a semi-automatic. Who cares if he's white or black or green for that matter. The fact is that he cannot stay out of trouble. Its a strange coincidence though that he buys two guns soon after his brother gets in trouble for drugs.

The reason this is news is because he didnt buy a shotgun or hunting supplies.....he purchased a Mac 11 and a 45cal pistol totaling $8,500.00......the store he made the purchase at dont even sell hunting gear, its a straight guns and ammo store next to West End.....trust me....I was there Jan.6th 2010 @ 4:23pm....three days after his last game in L.A. and just a few days after his bro got poped
