Aaron Hernandez

Have Gun, Will Travel

6/28/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-tmz-gun-aaron-hernandezAaron Hernandez was locked and loaded 4 years before his current alleged murder predicament ... and he made sure to capture the gun-toting moment on camera.

TMZ has obtained this photo ... showing a 19-year-old Aaron brandishing a Glock handgun for a selfie iPhone pic.  You can see a magazine inserted into the gun, but it's unclear if it was loaded.

We've learned the pic was taken in Gainesville, Florida in 2009 ... the same time Hernandez was playing football for the University of Florida.

Aaron is wearing what appears to be a Livestrong bracelet -- which is pretty ironic, because spokesperson Lance Armstrong also left his sport in disgrace.

How many times will we see the social media :ie Facebook, Instagram used to destroy someone's credibity ? When will these stupid people learn? " What? I never used a gun before. No man, not me. Never Never. Never"" Oh, right, I forgot about that picture of me dressed up in camo while holding an AK-47"

What a dumbass...anybody that is familiar with and knows how to use a handgun responsibly knows that you NEVER put your finger on the trigger unless you are going to fire the weapon.

FIRST thing I learned about guns, "THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN UNLOADED GUN" they are safer that way!
