LeBron James Pleads For Tougher Gun Control Following Cleveland Baby Shooting

Lebron James is tired of the bullsh*t! We all are for that matter! There is too much senseless, idiotic violence that is plaguing our country regardless of where you live.

After the news yesterday of a mass murder at a community college in Oregon, there was another tragic story in the Cleveland area, where a baby was shot in the chest during a drive by.

Lebron could not contain his anger and emotions and took to twitter to express himself.

“Like seriously man!!!! A baby shot in the chest in Cleveland.

It’s been out of control but it’s really OOC. Ya’ll need to chill the F out”.

“C’mon man let’s do and be better!  Don’t fall into the trap.

This can’t be only way. Accept more from yourselves. #TheLand #TheNation”

Most athletes in Lebron’s position have tended to ignore social issues over the years but not him.

Bron has realized the voice he has and doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind about things that affect this country.

He expanded on those sentiments on Friday when reporters asked him about his thoughts on gun control.

“Obviously you’re not going to be able to take every gun out, I don’t know how you can do that,” James said.

“There’s so many around now, today.

But if there’s some stipulations behind it or some penalties, some big time penalties or rules or regulations about carrying firearms, legal or illegal, people will second-guess themselves.”

A 6-month-old baby was shot in the chest during a drive-by shooting on Cleveland’s east side Thursday.

Police say the baby’s mother was in a car with two other males when gunshots struck her car near East 145th Street and Spear Avenue.

The infant died at a local hospital.

The shooting happened near East 143rd Street and Kinsman Road when someone opened fire into a car.

The mother of the child was driving and also had two other males in the car with her, according to police. Officers said only the child was struck.

She was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she died.

According to 911 calls obtained by newsnet5.com, a woman claimed,

“someone was shooting at our car and they shot the baby.”

SWAT members surrounded a home near East 145th Street and Spear Avenue, several blocks over, but there was no indication anyone was taken into custody.

Police said they do not have a shooter(s) description at this point in their investigation.

James posted an Instagram photo of his daughter, Zhuri, in front of his IMAX TV late Thursday. He captioned the image,

“Guess lil mama like football just like poppa! #ZhuriPrincess #JamesGang”
