Only a few handfuls of people showed up Saturday to meet a Florida gun show’s special guest of dishonor — George Zimmerman.For those of you scoring at home, yes, this man received an appearance fee to sign autographs. His sole claim to fame is shooting a killing an unarmed black minor. But 20-some people found him enough of a hero to show up.
Over the course of six hours, fewer than 20 people at the New Orlando Gun Show asked for a free autograph or photo with Trayvon Martin’s reclusive killer, who was hanging out in a rear office of The Arms Room gun store in Orlando.
Zimmerman, who has complained of receiving a steady stream of death threats and is overwhelmed by debt since he killed unarmed teen Martin in 2012, said he was enjoying himself.
“Everything’s good. We’re having fun,” said the 30-year-old, who was signing pictures of himself with his dog. “I’m just here to meet supporters.”
He was joined at the event by his on-again-off-again gal pal Samantha Scheibe, who last year accused him of pointing a gun at her.
The meet-and-greet almost didn’t happen after the original venue for the gun show backed out because of the controversy surrounding Zimmerman, according to organizer Mike Piwowarski.
“Come on out and meet George Z! He’s here a few more hours. And no matter what you read, there are no protesters, lunatics or other varieties of a-- clowns,” the store posted on Facebook.
This ought to make you very nauseous.
