This past Saturday, The Arms Room, a gun store in Orlando, Florida, hosted the New Orlando Gun Show with a very special guest — none other than killer of dangerous Skittle toting youths, George Zimmerman.
For the duration of the show, Zimmerman — wearing a bulletproof vest — was located in a back office signing autographs and thanking people for supporting him and his right to shoot unarmed black teenagers.
According to The New York Daily News, only 20 people sought his autograph during the 6-hour period he was there. (Fox 35 reported that it was closer to 200 people.) Among the small group were couple Melissa and Matt (they did not give a last name) who received a signed photo of Zimmerman, which they will likely display proudly on some wall in their piece of shit, racist home.
"He seemed nervous and actually a little scared to be there," Melissa told the NYDN. "He also appeared emotional, like he was really thankful and touched that people would come out to see him...It was pretty weird to meet him in person — and wow, he has gained a lot of weight!"
In an interview with Fox 35's Valerie Boey, Zimmerman said he is always worried about his safety when in public, but couldn't miss the opportunity to mingle with his supporters face-to-face:
Fox 35's Valerie Boey: "You have said you still walk around armed, why is that?"
George Zimmerman: "I walk around armed; I walk around with a bullet proof vest; it's not so much for my safety as it is so much for those around me. I can be around my family and something might happen to them. There's children around me, etc. Those threats… I have to be able to defend myself like any American.
Fox 35's Valerie Boey: "Do you think it's appropriate to be here, some may say it's antagonistic?"
George Zimmerman: "I don't worry about people that say it's antagonistic. To be honest with you, like I said, the importance was support the people that supported me."
The event was moved to The Arms Room at the last minute when the original venue cancelled after receiving too much negative feedback about Zimmerman's appearance. Not to be deterred, the New Orlando Gun Show quickly found a new location and is now suing the original location $300, ooo. (Way to stand your ground, dirtbags.)
