INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — LeBron James was at home with his three kids when news broke that a 5-month-old girl had been killed in a drive-by shooting - the third fatal shooting of a child in Cleveland in the past month.

Aavielle Wakefield's death moved James to speak out on social media, where he used the platform to make an immediate plea for calm and change in the wake of more senseless violence.

On Friday, the NBA star went further, stating his support for stricter gun laws.

"There's no room for guns." James said.

James, who has never shied away from stating his opinion on political issues, spoke after practice, a day after another tragedy in Cleveland as well as the mass shooting at an Oregon community college, where a gunman killed at least nine people and wounded others when he opened fire on campus.

James decried both situations and took a strong stance on gun control, a divisive issue in the U.S.

"Four kids under the age of five or six years old have been shot and killed or very badly injured," James said. "There's no room for that. There's no room for guns, first of all, but then for violence toward kids or anybody. I see the news go across my phone and I'm sitting there in front of my three kids, so it automatically just hit me.

"It's not just in Cleveland, it's the whole nation that goes through this as well. We all hurt from it."

Let OUR generations remember this:

WE didn't change overnight either!!

LeBron is a good man and an excellent role model. Unfortunately, we need more like him vice the typical thug knuckle head type that so many young black males seek to emulate. The shooting deaths of these children speaks for itself about the depraved violent environments so many black youths are being exposed to. There is no justification nor excuse making that can exonerate the criminal thug terrorists who are driving the body bag statistics in black America....

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
