Ohio firearms group sends George Zimmerman $12K to buy guns, security system

The Buckeye Firearms Foundation said its members have raised more than $12,000 to help defend George Zimmerman, who’s been the subject of widespread threats after his acquittal of murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The Ohio group said the money can be used to buy guns or a security system for Mr. Zimmerman, a Florida resident, The Associated Press reported.

A spokesman for the group said its members were concerned that Mr. Zimmerman’s rights were being violated. Ken Hanson, on the group’s behalf, said they’ve sent him a check for $12,150.37, AP reported.
