However you feel about how George Zimmerman’s trial, he had his day in court, he was acquitted and now the trial is over. However, the death threats against Zimmerman and his family have not ended. So, the Buckeye Firearms Foundation has decided to do something about that.
The $12,150.37 check that the group wrote to Zimmerman is the result of a fundraising effort that was launched because the group believes Zimmerman’s gun rights are being violated by the U.S. Department of Justice. The department has taken all the evidence from the trial, including the gun that killed Martin, as part of a civil rights investigation.
…The Buckeye Firearms Foundation’s check is meant to be spent on guns, ammunition, protective gear or a security system, said Ken Hanson, the group’s legal chairman.
“The Department of Justice refused to return him his gun, and he’s in need of protection,” Hanson said. “The money is intended to be used for anything he needs to defend himself or his family. He has complete discretion on how to use the money.”
Everyone should applaud this move by the Buckeye Firearms Foundation because undeniably George Zimmerman needs protection, the DOJ is deliberately withholding the weapon he needs to defend himself and no decent person should want any harm to come to George Zimmerman.
