George Zimmerman has joined forces with patriotic firearms shop owner, Andy Hallinan of Florida Gun Supply, to sell Confederate flag art…proceeds of which will go toward Andy’s legal costs for fighting designated terrorist group CAIR’s lawsuit against him.
Newsweek Hallinan made headlines last month after he posted a video in which he described his store, Florida Gun Supply, as a “Muslim-free zone.” The video was in response to the killing of four Marines and a Navy petty officer in Chattanooga, Tennessee, days earlier. Hallinan stands in front of a Confederate flag in the video, which has more than 177,000 views.
Designated Terrorist Group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has filed a lawsuit against Hallinan, claiming discrimination based on religion.
Zimmerman’s flag painting prints, signed and numbered, cost around $50. “The painting was painted in honor of Andy Hallinan for being a true patriot and leading the country into a better, safer America,” says the shop website, which also features a video of Zimmerman and Hallinan, and says the paintings are in response to the Counsel on American-Islamic Relations lawsuit. Florida Gun Supply is in Iverness, Florida.
Zimmerman, whom a jury ruled not guilty of killing Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in 2012, has previously sold original artwork. One of his paintings sold on eBay for more than $100,000.
