ith a smile on his face, George Zimmerman spent Saturday afternoon posing for photos, sharing hugs and shaking hands with gun enthusiasts at a firearms expo in Lake Mary..
"It's so odd to me," said Zimmerman, about the celebrity treatment he receives in public. "[But] it is appreciated."
In his first interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman described life after his acquittal last year in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The former Neighborhood Watch volunteer shot the unarmed black teen in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012.
Now life for the 30-year-old is completely different.
He's always moving.
He's in debt.
And he's constantly receiving death threats.
"I just try to be smart where I go," said Zimmerman, who described the gun show at Gander Mountain Academy as a "friendly" event that didn't warrant extra protection.
Zimmerman said he carries a semi-automatic handgun for added safety.
"It's part of life," said Zimmerman, whose Twitter feed is a constant barrage of death threats. "It's unfortunately necessary right now."(continued)

And he could do worse... he WAS a boxer by avocation I hear. It’s not like it’s a new sport to him.
It’s understandable, if not always wise, to send “I’m not skeered” messages.
Which is what we should all do to you. Yawn you off and go occupy ourselves elsewhere.
Or making money since no one, including you, will hire him for any job?
If I had enough redneck bucks I’d consider it
Trayvon was an "unarmed black teen."
Are you extending him a job offer?
had I read further, I would have pinged both of you to my post at #37..........
As for you 2nd Div., I'll leave the job offers to Zimmerman up to you.............
I wouldn’t have waited so long to shoot!
Rent a cop wannabe was perhaps a poor way of describing his mentality. I guess I have a different view of why anyone carries, myself included. He was emboldened by that bulge in his pants. Without that gun would he have followed our confronted Martin? No way.
Now you're starting to creep me out bro...........I thought we were discussing George Zimmerman?
Do me a favor, if you want to invoke satan in your arguments, please leave me out of your target posters........
You don’t know his thoughts, so you don’t know that. Read this:
Zimmerman Complained About Sanford Police in Defense of Homeless Black Man
He’s real and if you aren’t prepared, he’ll eat your soul.
And, to start blowing more stereotypes, he was a Democrat.
The “Following” was to stand there and look. He got sneaked up on. He was also disgusted at crime in the area.
If I could somehow contact him I would offer him a business opportunity. If anyone knows how much everyone needs reliable legal assistance and identity theft protection at a low monthly cost, it’s someone like George Zimmerman. If you or your people are reading this, George, contact me.
They’re all over.
What a strawman argument........but I'll go one better, WHY DON'T YOU OFFER HIM EMPLOYMENT? Since you appear to be his guardian angel and defender on this site, the very least YOU could do is hire him...........
You obviously did not watch the trial.
Did you miss post #54, addressed to you?
Stop it with that crap, George Zimmerman is not that evil............
