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.

Federal law, no one under the age of 21 may buy or be in possession of a handgun. So he was in violation of law even then.

I am not a Hernandez fan but wanted to correct your error about the bracelet. That is not the yellow LiveStrong bracelet he is wearing in the pic. It is orange, and would most likely be either the TPS bracelet given to all the players by Mickey Marotti, UF’s director of strength and conditioning or the bracelet that has "Sunshine" on one side and "Never Let your Teammate Down" on the other - in memory of former walk-on QB Michael Guilford, who died in a motorcycle accident.

He is a complete idiot, you have to be over 21 to purchase or own a handgun. So he either bought the Gun on the streets or he got a proxy to buy it for him, both of which are illegal. He will never be able to legally own another firearm for the rest of his life.

Just wanted to add that Hernandez is being investigated for a double homicide in 2012. Seems Lloyd might have had some info on that, hence the comment "you just don't know who to trust". I notice he did get some more tats since this photo. Tatted up PUNK.
