George Zimmerman headlines Central Florida gun show
George Zimmerman headlined a Central Florida gun show this weekend.
He shook hands, smiled and signing autographs for attendees.
Zimmerman appeared at a scaled-down version of the "New Orlando Gun Show" Saturday.
The show was originally set for a larger location, but organizers say the venue canceled late Thursday after getting negative feedback about Zimmerman's planned appearance.
"They told us they canceled for community pressure. They were getting phone calls and backlash and didn't want that kind of person there."
Organizers plan to sue the venue for kicking them out.
The man behind the gun show says he supported Zimmerman during his trial for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and after he was acquitted.
Zimmerman offered to return the favor and support his gun business which lead to the gun show appearance.
