George Zimmerman Is ‘Guest Of Honor’ At Florida Gun Show

ORLANDO, Fla., (UPI) — Some attendees at a Florida gun show took the time to get an autograph from George Zimmerman — just not very many.

The organizers of the New Orlando Gun Show had to move their event after announcing that Zimmerman would be the guest of honor, but he still showed up to shake hands and help boost gun sales.

The show was held at the Arms Room store in Orlando instead of at the Majestic. “They told us they canceled for community pressure,” show organizer told Mike Piwowarski told WESH. “They were getting phone calls and backlash, and didn’t want that kind of person there.”

The New York Daily News reported that fewer than 20 people got an autograph from Zimmerman during the six hours that he was at the show.

“He seemed nervous and actually a little scared to be there. He also appeared emotional, like he was really thankful and touched that people would come out to see him,” said a woman who only wanted to be identified as Melissa. “It was pretty weird to meet him in person — and wow, he has gained a lot of weight!”

Samantha Scheibe joined Zimmerman, 30, at the event.

“Come on out and meet George Z! He’s here a few more hours. And no matter what you read, there are no protestors, lunatics or other varieties of ass clowns,” the store wrote on Facebook. “And don’t forget we have free burgers and dogs!”
