Buckeye Firearms to buy Zimmerman a new gun, left goes crazy.

Everyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows that George Zimmerman was found not guilty. As such, he should have all of his possessions seized by the state returned to him, including his firearm.

But crooked Attorney General and mexican drug-lord arms supplier Eric Holder decided to order that the Sanford Police actually keep possession of Zimmerman’s gun.

The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial – including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer’s gun.

Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month’s end.

The Obama administration has no evidence to bring any more charges against Zimmerman. But they are above the law and have decided to play to their extreme base and deny Zimmerman his property back.

So, the Buckeye Firearms Association has decided to do something about it. They want to replace his gun for him.

Whatever you might think about the Zimmerman verdict, the fact remains that we are a nation of laws, not mob justice.

George Zimmerman was tried in a court of law and found NOT GUILTY. And that entitles him to continue exercising all his rights, including his Second Amendment right to own a firearm.

But now Eric Holder and the U.S. Justice department have stepped in to stop Zimmerman from taking possession of his property.

This is outrageous. Mr. Holder is this nation’s chief law enforcement officer. It is his job to uphold the laws, to support and defend our system of justice.

This move to prevent Mr. Zimmerman from claiming his property is an unacceptable abuse of power. And the threats of federal charges on civil rights grounds is little more than blatant pandering for political gain.

Moreover, based on statements he and others have made recently, Holder hopes to use this as the first step toward renewing this administration’s attack on gun rights.

To be fair to all concerned, we have remained silent during the Zimmerman trial. We allowed the evidence to unfold and the justice system to run its course. Now the jury has spoken and that should be the end of the matter.

George Zimmerman has every right to get his property back.

And if Eric Holder chooses to deny Mr. Zimmerman that right, Buckeye Firearms Foundation will remedy the matter by purchasing a NEW FIREARM for him, including a holster, flashlight, and any other gear he wants.

This is about more than mere principle. Zimmerman and his family now face daily threats on their lives. More than ever, he has a right to defend himself against those who would seek to do him harm.

Gun owners must stand together and refuse to allow an injustice like this to go unanswered. If we choose to sit idly by while the full force and weight of the federal government descends upon a free man, it will embolden others to take liberties with our rights.

We know what some will say about this. We know we will be reviled for taking this stand. Our motives will be impugned and our words will be twisted. But that happens already. Those who work against our rights will always do this. It hasn’t stopped us before and it won’t stop us now.

They’re right on. It’s when we stand together when we are the strongest defenders of our rights. The NRA is as strong as it is because it consists of millions of members who voluntarily pay dues to protect the 2nd Amendment rights they cherish.

Of course, BFA’s prediction is correct. Liberal groups are already attacking them for standing up for someone whose constitutional rights are being abused by the Obama administration.

  1. As for my personal take on the Zimmerman case, I believe that the verdict was correct. The entire story is tragic for both parties.

    I also believe Zimmerman shouldn’t have followed Martin in the first place. However, following someone so that you can report his whereabouts to the police is not a crime. It also does not warrant being assaulted.

    The moment that Martin assaulted Zimmerman, knocked him to the ground and began pounding his head into concrete, is when the entire episode changed. There was no evidence presented that shows that Zimmerman started a physical confrontation. Obama can complain about “stand your ground” all he wants, but that statute doesn’t apply. Zimmerman had no opportunity to flee or retreat when a much stronger man was sitting on him. His only recourse to defend himself from the beating he was receiving was to use his firearm.

  2. There was no evidence that Martin started anything other than Zimmerman’s unsworn statements, which are full of contradictions, and were not subject to cross examination. In fact, the only evidence of who started anything is that Zimmerman started it all, including the testimony of Rachel Jenteel who testified that Martin said “get off get off” before his phone went dead. You cannot know, nor can the jury, nor can anyone, that Martin “assaulted Zimmerman, knocked him to the ground and began pounding his head into concrete.” There is no evidence for that, and such evidence only could have come from Zimmerman’s testimony, which he refused to give (which is his right), which is very odd for someone claiming self defense.

    As for SYG, the jury instructions themselves are directly from the SYG statute, and self-defense more broadly in Florida has changed because of SYG to remove any need for retreat, this is also reflected in the jury instructions. In fact, the only juror to speak after the verdict said unsolicited that SYG played a key role in the deliberations, unsolicited, twice in the same interview. Just because the defense didn’t argue SYG (likely to keep Zimmerman from needing to testify), doesn’t mean the law didn’t apply. It plainly did.

    The contortions you are putting yourselves through to defend the stalked murder of an unarmed kid on the way home are very telling.

    1. It is true that NOBODY knows exactly what happened. But from the evidence provided, that’s the way it looks to me. The police actually testified that Zimmerman’s story was very consistent. One witness said Martin was on top of Zimmerman. Zimmerman’s injuries are consistent with that. Martin didn’t have any injuries that would indicate that Zimmerman was “on” him and Rachel Jeantel’s testimony was so incredible that it hurt their own case.

      If he really stalked Martin with the intent to murder him, as you imply, he certainly wouldn’t have called the police first and he certainly wouldnt have let himself get beat up either. If he’s the murderer you claim him to be, he would have just shot him.

      That’s how I came to my conclusions. Its common sense. Not contortions.

      I don’t really need to defend anybody anyway, especially from someone who seeks out sexual encounters with underage boys. He was found not guilty. The state had a ridiculously weak case and the verdict reflected that.

    2. Tim Russo: “The contortions you are putting yourselves through to defend the stalked murder of an unarmed kid on the way home are very telling”

      Perhaps you have been out of touch for the last few weeks Tim?. Or maybe you have just been watching MSNBC?. Either way it seems you have missed the fact that George Zimmerman was found innocent in a trial by jury?

      Therefore, if follows that Taryvon Martin could not have been murdered. He was sadly and unfortunately killed in a justifiable act of self-defense. You can’t change that no matter how often you say otherwise. OK?

      Bottom line is you have no evidence at all, likewise you weren’t there, so you have only opinions. Everyone’s opinions, yours included, count for nothing. The only opinions that mattered were those of the jury.

      So if anyone is a contortionist here it is you — twisting unsupportable phantasies in an attempt to turn an INNOCENT man guilty. But you can’t because he isn’t.

      The trial is over the decision has been made, look up the meaning of double jeopardy.

      Of course George Zimmerman should have his gun back his record is clean.
