As nation wars over gun control, Jon Jones posts video of assault rifle skills

I think “gun control” means steady aim in the “Bones” camp.

Widespread but they all were a hit. #Hobbies #20Yards #NeedATrainer

A post shared by Jon Bones Jones (@jonnybones) on

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, knows how to push a few buttons when it comes to controversial headlines. Remember that whole eye-poke fiasco?

Exhibit A.

Busted for using performance-enhancing drugs?

Exhibit B.

So it should come as no surprise to learn that Jones — an avid firearms collector — would post a video of his assault rifle skills while the rest of the nation is warring over gun control, including last week’s March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C.

Hey, at least we know who to call when the zombie apocalypse breaks out.

Jones (22-1, 1 NC) lost his license to practice mixed martial arts (MMA) after last summer’s failed drug test and while he settled his “dumb” business with California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), he must still answer to United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Until then, the only action “Bones” will see is at the local firing range.
