After the outcry from protestors in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict, the man who was declared “not guilty” has received many death threats. And now that the Department of Justice plans on putting a “hold” on Zimmerman’s Kel-Tec PF-9 along with all the other evidence as they pursue their investigation for a civil suit, it looks like Zimmerman will have to go without his gun for a while.
Seeing this is about the worst time for Zimmerman to not be able to defend himself against these death threats becoming reality, a Florida gun company has decided to help him out.
Saying it was a completely non-political decision the gun company has offered Zimmerman a free handgun. He can either choose the same model, a Kel-Tec PF-9 or another handgun suitable for concealed carry if he wishes.
The letter said, “We have read numerous reports of death threats against your client and believe no good would come from harming him.”
Looks like a very generous offer, and while some of the Trayvon Martin protestors will twist this into something else, it’s probably a very good idea for a man who has been so hated and vilified to be able to defend himself once again against what truly may be an attack on his own civil rights. When thousands of people are wearing t-shirts with your face in a target and demanding for revenge on your life it’s not the time to pretend that no one really means what they are saying.
