As we’ve reported, the Buckeye Firearms Foundation has raised $12,000 for George Zimmerman which the group intended to be used for the purchase of guns and other types of security to help Zimmerman insure his safety.
The group has obviously taken some heat over the decision to hold the fundraiser, and even had their website attacked by hackers. Ken Hanson, legal counsel for the organization went on, Piers Morgan of all shows, to defend the group’s actions. Despite Morgan’s extremely anti gun stance, Mr. Hanson handled the questions very well.
Here are some of the highlights from the interview.
“What if Trayvon Martin’s older brother is walking in the same area in a few months time, George Zimmerman happens to be passing, finds him suspicious as he did Trayvon…and decides to shoot him as well?” Morgan asked. “Where does that leave you, if you’re the one who supplied the gun?”
“Well, if we’re the ones that supplied the gun, and again remember, we provided money, not a gun,” Hanson replied. “But if someone is on top of Mr. Zimmerman, again repeatedly bashing his head into the concrete, and he acts in self defense, that’s incredible bad luck he found himself in that situation twice. But we’ll sleep soundly.”
“Two different levels of government review have found no fault with Mr. Zimmerman’s actions. We can go through all the hypotheticals you’d like to go through, what it comes down to is that he’s gone through a government review,” Hanson lectured.
Hanson summed it up pretty succinctly, “This isn’t an issue of race, it’s an issue of self defense law.”
Zimmerman was found not guilty of both second degree murder and manslaughter in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin. The all female Florida jury found that Zimmerman acted in self defense during the incident.
