Buckeye Firearms Raising Funds For George Zimmerman’s New Gun

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation wants to make sure that George Zimmerman gets his gun back. If Florida doesn’t give it to him, they say they’ll buy him a new one.

The Ohio political action committee is currently taking donations to help buy George Zimmerman a new gun if the state of Florida delays in returning the weapon he used to kill Trayvon Martin last year to him.

“We’re buying ZIMMERMAN a NEW GUN – We need your help,” reads the masthead on an article at the Buckeye Firearms Foundation website.

George Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder charges in Florida over a week ago. The controversial decision has gained international attention, as has the report that Zimmerman could even attempt to reclaim the very gun used in the shooting.

It is currently being held by the Justice Department as evidence.

“We have created the Zimmerman Second Amendment Fund. We encourage you to donate whatever you can afford, $100 … $50 … $25 … even just $10. We will provide Mr. Zimmerman, who has no current source of income, with the funds he needs to replace his firearm, holster, and other gear.,” the statement’s release reads.

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation refers to themselves as “a grassroots political action committee dedicated to defending and advancing the right of Ohio citizens to own and use firearms for all legal activities.”

Since it was posted last Thursday, the PAC’s release has been read by over 4500 individuals. It is unclear how much money the organization has raised to buy George Zimmerman a new gun.
