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.

Regardless of the community there are a certain percentage of people who have got criminal minds .... even in the NFL. Here is one.

@ Goldrush: If YOU could see the bigger picture, you'd see that if no round were chambered, finger on or off the trigger wouldn't matter - just like your brain-less response.

Those earrings will make him more appealing to Bubba and his crew at the state penitentiary.

Damn, this article is poorly written. First you say he's locked and loaded, then you openly wonder if the gun is loaded. Hernandez wearing a Livestrong bracelet isn't ironic, either. It's a coincidence. Opposite of what you'd expect versus the difference of what you'd expect and all that, you know, TMZ ...

Well even if they don't find him guilty....he's proven himself to be a dummy.

That bracelet actually looks like it's from the "I'm With Coco" campaign.

He'll have an entire lifetime imprisoned in a cage to think about how he flushed tens of millions of dollars, his career, and his freedom down the toilet. It'll be a long, bitter life.
