George Zimmerman is all smiles and shotguns

August 23, 2013

Zimmy TMZ


George Zimmerman, a month after his acquittal in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin and last seen evading a speeding ticket somewhere in Texas, decided a trip to Kel-Tec—the company that manufactured the PF-9 he used to shoot Trayvon—was in order, and the Cocoa company apparently rolled out the red carpet, according to TMZ (and there’s a phrase—“according to TMZ”—I heretofore have managed to go my entire professional career without using; thanks, George):

Zimmerman went to Kel-Tec in Cocoa, Florida … a gun manufacturing company.  We’re told he was asking questions about the legality of buying a shotgun—specifically, the Kel-Tec KSG.The gun in question is a tactical shotgun, often used for home defense. It holds 12 rounds of 12 gauge shells.

This is the gun Zimmerman either bought or wants to buy.


According to TMZ—there it is again—“the owner’s son took Zimmerman on a tour of the grounds, including the area where the firearms are assembled.”

A hero’s welcome, then.

    For once in my life. I love watching somebody else’s pain and maddening frustrations drawing them nearer, and nearer to apoplexy and a massive stroke. …Yes, die slowly and painfully Orlando Weekly. Your disoriented obsessions with George Zimmerman smiling like an opossum eating a sweet potato is the best part of an inert hoodie.

    He had his day in court and was acquitted. He is only exercising his 2nd amendment right at this time. Leave the poor guy alone.

    Great there should be more Zimmerman’s buying guns to kill the gangsters & thugs who think they can rob, beat, rape & commit other crimes against innocent people just because they feel like bad ass dudes

    It’s nice to see a smile on Zimmerman’s face.
    And I like his taste in guns! I may have to get one of those Kel-Tec KSG shotguns, too!

    so if OJ goes free you wouldn’t have a problem with him getting a gun right?

    OJ was convicted of a felony, therefore that would be a violation of the Lautenburg agreement. Zimmerman was convicted of nothing.
