(GunNews.com) — When the U.S. Department of Justice ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of George Zimmerman’s personal property — including his firearm — after he was found not guilty, Buckeye Firearms Foundation started a fund to replace Zim’s gun.

“We find this action outrageous,” said Jim Irvine, President of Buckeye Firearms Foundation. “Whatever you think about the case, Mr. Zimmerman was tried in a court of law and found not guilty. And now all evidence should be returned to the rightful owners, including Mr. Zimmerman’s firearm.

“He is a free man and, as a citizen of the United States, he should be able to exercise all his rights, including his Second Amendment rights, which includes owning and carrying a firearm. This phoney ‘hold’ on evidence is just an underhanded ploy by the Department of Justice to punish Zimmerman because some people don’t like the verdict.”

The Foundation announced the Zimmerman Second Amendment Fund on Friday, July 19, 2013, expecting to bring in one or two thousand dollars.

“We didn’t need that much,” said Irvine, “just enough to buy a quality firearm, holster, flashlight, ammo, and any accessories Mr. Zimmerman may need. But the story went national and we raised far more than we expected.”

Buckeye Firearms Foundation closed the fund to donations on Tuesday morning, July 23, 2013, with a total of $12,657.48 (after Paypal transaction fees, net $12,150.37).

Dean Rieck, communications director for the Buckeye Firearms Foundation, said he was overwhelmed with the outpouring of support. He said, “We received 774 donations from 48 states, plus Australia, Lithuania, New South Wales, and Switzerland. Donations ranged from $1 to $100, with the average being $16.35.”

Good deal!

I hope Mr. Zimmerman gets a very, very nice replacement.

He could almost buy a brick of 22lr with that much money.
