Elvis Presley: Were the Memphis Mafia always armed with guns? King’s cousin shares truth

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.”
