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.

Just another fake ass thug who was the product of poor/lazy parenting thinking he can do whatever he want. Now he is going to be spending his time as the new fish on the cell block with real thugs.

Practically handed the evidence to the authorities. He is going to kick himself when he watches all the CSI shows and Law and Order series from over the last 20 years. How do you have 45 million dollars and still manage to deliberately throw it away. He has three gun episodes that we know of. One case investigated while in school, one pending shooting lawsuit in Florida, and this one. It has Hollywood written all over it.
