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.

Dumbest goon ever. How he managed to stay out of trouble for 3 years is an accomplishment.

Why is his finger on the trigger? 1st rule of gun safety, never put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to shoot.

Wow ...    

Beyond sad. This guy could have had it all and blew it over ... pride? Trust? Seriously, what could have gone so wrong to take another man's life? Self defense is the only good reason in my mind, but that does not appear to be the case here.

Thugging & mugging now his butt hole will be wide enough to drive a freight train through. Money can;'t buy class or common sense that's for sure.

Wow ...    

Since when does taking a selfie with you holding a gun, make you a bad ass? You are nothing but a punk.

Another gun loving nut who ****ed up another person's life as well as his own. Unlike in South Africa's joke of a criminal justice system, Aaron won't get out on bail to enjoy his life while the man he allegedly killed is 6 feet under.
