George Zimmerman signs autographs at gun show for 20 people

George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted last summer of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, signed autographs at an Orlando gun show over the weekend. Reportedly only 20 people showed up in 6 hours.

The organizers of an Orlando, Fla. gun show had to find a new venue due to the controversy around their guest of honor, firearms aficionado George Zimmerman—best known for fatally shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.

The original site of the event, The Majestic, backed out due to “community pressure,” New Orlando Gun Show organizer Mike Piwowarski told local reporters.

But the show went on over the weekend, relocated to the Arms Room gun shop. Zimmerman reportedly sat for 6 hours and signed about 20 autographs.

Zimmerman was paid an undisclosed appearance fee to show up. The former neighborhood watchman is reportedly broke and living on sporadic donations from gun lovers.
