George Zimmerman

Gun Group Fronting Him $$$

'We Regret Nothing'

The Ohio gun group that cut George Zimmerman a $12K check to protect him after the Trayvon Martin verdict  tells TMZ ... they’d do it all over again, despite this week's domestic violence arrest.

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation
was indignant the FBI took George's guns away during the trial, especially because Zimmerman was getting a slew of death threats.  So it held a fundraiser and raked in $12,150.37.

As for how Buckeye feels now that Zimmerman can't go a month without screwing up ... they simply say he hasn't been convicted of anything and he's presumed innocent.  So, no regrets.

No word on whether the group will be raising money for Zimmerman this time around.

There are certain rights we are lucky enough to have in this country. One of them is the right to bear arms. However, if you misuse that sh!t then you no longer should have that right. This guy should be lucky to use a watergun. Fool.

George Zimmerman has not been convicted of a felony. It is his Constitutional right to own guns. Leave him alone.

The Buckeye Firearms Association is an excellent organization. They presume correctly that he is innocent unless proven guilty. Zimmerman was put on trial to test Stand Your Ground laws and was made iconic by the media. BFA did the right thing and gave him the funds they raised so he could purchase a new firearm and pay some legal costs. This $12k was a small percentage of the total amount Zimmerman was able to raise from other organizations.

"trolling a neighborhood for his victim, pushing her when confronted, attacking her character, and arguing that she was the aggressor when charges were filed against him.

That sound familiar? That was Georges modus operandi in 2005 when he assaulted his ex fiance. Same exact **** to the letter that he did to Trayvon, only he killed him."

Right on!

Find it ironic that I actually live in Ohio and that would be a life changing amount of cash for me, but this dip sh*t lived in Florida and it paid for about three seconds of his legal team..

GZ is a HERO for protecting our streets from filth like Thugvon. He was setup by this weird chick. Google a picture of her and you can see she is way out of his league. This is for money.
