George Zimmerman Is Painting Confederate Flags To Raise Money
George Zimmerman is selling prints of the Confederate Flag for $50 each to help raise money for legal fees for himself and the owner of a “Muslim-Free” gun store in Florida, according to reports.
The former neighborhood watchman and the owner of Florida Gun Supply, Andy Hallinan, partnered up when Hallinan came under fire for a video he made last month in which he said he wouldn’t sell firearms to Muslims.
“I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots,” Hallinan said.
After learning of Hallinan’s policy, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) contacted the Department of Justice to investigate the store for discrimination and violating Federal law. Once Zimmerman heard of the lawsuit, he offered his support to Hallinan.
“Labeling everyone and anyone that has a Confederate flag as a racist is just not right,” Zimmerman said to Hallinan. “That’s one of the reasons I chose to reach out to you and see what I can do to help.”
The money raised from the selling of prints will go to support their legal funds, living expenses and advancing their mission to change the country,” according to the store’s website.
Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin in 2012, was later acquitted of all charges.
