On the heels of news that Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ will not give George Zimmerman his gun back anytime soon, the Buckeye Firearms Foundation is raising funds to buy Zimmerman a new one.
The Foundation posted the following on their website:
Regardless of what you think of the Zimmerman verdict, we are a nation of laws, not mob justice.
George Zimmerman was tried in a court of law and found NOT GUILTY. And that entitles him to continue exercising all his rights, including his Second Amendment right to own a firearm.
They then explained how “outrageous” it is that Holder refuses to give Zimmerman back his gun, adding:
If Eric Holder chooses to deny Mr. Zimmerman [the right to own a gun], Buckeye Firearms Foundation will remedy the matter by purchasing a new firearm for him, including a holster, flashlight, and any other gear he wants.
This is about more than mere principle–Zimmerman and his family now face daily threats against their lives. More than ever he has a right to defend himself against those who would seek to do him harm.
Buckeye Firearms Foundation is accepting donations for Zimmerman’s new gun on their website. You can access it by clicking HERE.
