Look at it from his point of view, blacks all over the USA, maybe even the WORLD are pissed off at you. It's only a matter of time before someone tries to move in on him. Making it publicly known you're on the market for a shotgun or two might cause some people to think twice about paying him a visit in the middle of the night. It's a smart move in my opinion, he's passive aggressively telling every dude who's thinking about getting some revenge that he's prepared.
Hey fuck-tard, I'm guessing the fact that he already murdered an unarmed black kid is enough of a deterrent for would be thugs to attack him. The shotgun is overkill.
But seriously, dude probably has faced ridiculous threats since the day after the trial finished.
It Says Here On Your Résumé, Mr. Zimmerman, That You Shot A Boy?
Well, George, it looks here like you’ve got a lot of good work experience. Strong references. Proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite. And you’re bilingual, which is a huge plus. I’d say on paper you’re certainly qualified for this position. But before we move any further, Mr. Zimmerman, I just have a quick question about one of these items from February 2012. It says here that you shot a boy?
Sorry, I’m just looking here and it says you shot and killed a child?
Hmm, I’d definitely like to delve into that a tad more. Just to make sure that we cover all of our bases before I go and have a chat with the higher-ups. Standard interview procedure.
So, George, I see the shooting occurred during an altercation near a house the boy was visiting, and if I’m correct, the boy would have been 17 at the time? That would make him a minor then, wouldn’t it. Well, I have to say, George, you’re the first applicant we’ve ever received who’s taken the life of a teenager before.
Let me just jot that down in the margin here.
I do appreciate that you’ve listed all of your prior experience, though. I see here you once applied to be a police officer in Virginia, and you took a class that discussed self-defense training. You also recently did a stint as a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Florida, where you monitored a gated community called The Retreat at Twin Lakes.
That sounds like a nice place to live.
You know what, let’s circle back to you shooting a boy. Let’s see, it says here that the young man was African-American? There wasn’t a racial element to this shooting, was there, George? Because I could definitely see that being a bit of a problem.
I’m not going to lie to you, HR will probably need to take a second look at this after lunch today.
George, forgive me, I’m just asking—and keep in mind this won’t be the only thing that influences the outcome of the interview one way or the other—but I guess my number-one question would be why you shot a boy.
I mean, because even if he made the first move, it says here in your cover letter...wait, let me find it...ah, here it is. It says that he was unarmed? Is that true? So, not only did you shoot a boy, but you shot an unarmed boy? I’m just going to note that, too.
I’ve got to say, hiring you is shaping up to be a pretty tough sell to the higher-ups, George. If I’m trying to convince my boss that we should bring you on, I guess I could make the argument that, on one hand, it’s admirable you showed some initiative to protect the community. But, on the other hand, you shot a child. And my boss is a pretty perceptive guy, so he’ll probably ask if you were fearing for your life so much so that it was absolutely necessary to shoot an unarmed teenage boy at point-blank range.
George, I’m not an expert or anything, but I have to say it kind of sounds like you murdered someone.
Actually, from the looks of it, it definitely was murder. So am I reading this right? You’re a murderer? You’re a murderer applying for a job?
I don’t know if I can hire a murderer, George.
Wait, no, now I get it. That year-and-a-half gap we discussed earlier makes sense. I just had to connect the dots on your résumé for a second. You murdered someone and you were on trial for the killing. But you were found innocent, so, technically, you’re not a murderer. Otherwise you wouldn’t be sitting here, of course. You weren’t deemed a murderer by the state. So, on the record, you’re not a murderer. But off the record, you are. Okay, got it. Well, that makes everything a lot easier on my end.
Whew. In that case, I guess everything checks out for me. Thank you so much for coming in; we’ll get back to you in a couple of days.
Plus he just killed someone and got off. The last thing he should be doing is shopping for guns.
And the trial was basically his word against a dead kid's
There was physical evidence supporting his story his defense team laid out at trial.

There is no evidence he hit trayvon with a punch or a kick or any offensive move other than the single gunshot wound. Unless you believe trayvon managed to break Zim's nose, give him black eyes and cut up the back of his head after being shot, it is somewhat unlikely that Zim initiated the physical portion of the fight.
Clearly Zim initiated the verbal confrontation, but its not at all clear that he initiated the physical portion. There is a chance that he swung on and missed trayvon or that he tried to grab trayvon rather than hit him, but these two claims are unprovable either way.
Obviously Zim is not tough at all. A large part of his defense was establishing his softness and inability to physically defend himself without shooting trayvon.
Anyways Zim's life has an expiration date on it. I said it a while ago and i'm sticking to it. He will be killed in the next 2 years. Anybody can be killed with a gun. Lots of people want to kill zimmerman.
There is no evidence he hit trayvon with a punch or a kick or any offensive move other than the single gunshot wound.
So his first form of defense was lethal force?
Anyways, this is one of those stories you know isn't going to end well. Either Zimm will end up killing someone else, or someone will kill him. As someone else said, wouldn't be surprised if it happened sooner rather than later.
so zimmerman is merely protecting himself. that seems perfectly reasonable. now, contestants, for ten million dollars, can anyone here answer our next question--
why are george zimmerman's lawyers calling him out publicly?
The answer you're looking for is because it's a public relations nightmare after a high octane, race sensitive court battle. Peoples feelings are hurt. There is such a thing as a dignified winner, nobody likes a sore winner. The lawyers are afraid this is the proverbial poke in the eye to the black community, they would be right. Having said that, it doesn't really matter what the lawyers say now, he's already found not guilty, he is a free man, he can do whatever he wants, stupid or not. The lawyers are just trying to keep him alive, in my opinion.
