Zimmerman Selling Confederate Flag Painting To Help Florida Gun Shop Owner
George Zimmerman has picked up a paintbrush to help a Florida gun shop owner who has banned Muslims from his store. Zimmerman is helping by selling prints of his painting of the Confederate flag.
Last month gun shop owner Andy Hallinan posted a controversial video declaring his Inverness shope a quote “Muslim-free” store. Zimmerman reached out to help Hallinan pay legal bills by selling prints of his painting.
Zimmerman explains to Hallinan why, in a video posted on the gun shop’s website. “I was painting the American flag when I heard of you getting sued by CAIR,” said Zimmerman, “and I decided that I would do for you what the American people did for me.”
Zimmerman is the neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted of murder in the shooting death of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin.
