George Zimmerman Signs Autographs At Florida Gun Show

George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer who gained international notoriety for shooting and killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, spent part of his weekend signing autographs at a gun show in Florida.

Zimmerman, who has had a number of run-ins with the law in recent years, attended the New Orlando Gun Show at the Arms Room gun store in Orlando, a replacement venue after the original larger venue cancelled over his the controversial appearance.

According to the Daily News only a handful of people turned up to get an autograph during the six-hour session. Speaking to the newspaper, Zimmerman said he was there to meet his “supporters”.

One woman who attended the show told the Daily News: “It was pretty weird to meet him in person — and wow, he has gained a lot of weight!”
