(KTVI) – George Zimmerman headlined a central Florida gun show this weekend. He shook hands, smiled and signed autographs for attendees.
Zimmerman appeared at a scaled-down version of the New Orlando Gun Show Saturday at “The Arms Room” store.
The show was originally set to be held at another location, but the venue cancelled late Thursday after getting negative feedback about Zimmerman’s planned appearance.
“They told us they canceled for community pressure..they were getting phone calls and backlash and didn’t want that kind of person there,” said gun show organizer Mike Piwowarski.
He says he supported Zimmerman during his trial for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and after he was acquitted.
Zimmerman offered to return the favor and support his gun business which lead to the gun show appearance.
