Speaking on the Memphis Mafia Kid YouTube, Danny Smith, the son of Elvis’ cousin Billy Smith, shared his memories.
Just a child living at Graceland at the time, he said: “Yes a lot of them carried guns.
“I know when Elvis would rent out the Whitehaven Plaza and Lisa [Marie] and Rory and Laura and me and Joey and Amber or just all the other kids, would go.
“I know Dick [Grob] carried a gun, I think Al [Strada] did. I know Daddy did sometimes. Pretty much probably over the years, I would say at one time or another they probably all carried guns.”
