'Makes no sense,' says LeBron James of the United States' 'ridiculous' gun laws in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting.

Basketball legend LeBron James called for stronger gun rules in the United States on Wednesday, after a shooting at a Las Vegas college campus killed three people just days before the NBA's mid-season tournament conclusion.

Over the years, the 38-year-old celebrity has been a vocal supporter of stricter gun control laws. 

His newest comments came after he landed in town for the Los Angeles Lakers' semi-final matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday. 

Jame talked to reporters barely hours after a gunman killed three people and badly injured another in an earlier Wednesday shooting at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

"First of all, my condolences go to the families that lost loved ones, families and friends and everything," he stated. 

"It just goes back to what I said about guns in America before." I believe it's a lengthier discourse, but we keep dealing with the same story, this same conversation, every time it happens, and it just keeps happening.

"It's literally insane that you can buy a gun and do these things over and over again and nothing changes.It defies logic to continue losing innocent lives on college campuses, high schools, 

retail malls, and movie theaters.It's ludicrous. The truth that nothing has changed — it's actually become easier to purchase a rifle. It's ridiculous."
