Author Brad Thor offers to buy George Zimmerman gun of his choice (Video)
examiner.com ^ | 20 July, 2013 | Joe Newby

Posted on 07/20/2013 7:11:20 PM PDT by marktwain

On Friday, bestselling author Brad Thor offered to buy a new gun for George Zimmerman and all the ammunition he wants after learning the Department of Justice put a hold on the evidence in the case, delaying the return of Zimmerman's weapon.

“Read this carefully, as I don’t want 2 be misunderstood: SCREW the #DOJ. If they won’t give #Zimmerman his gun back, I’ll buy him a new one,” he tweeted.

“Whatever gun he wants + however much ammo, consider it done. I’m buying. Done deal,” he said in a tweet to Zimmerman's brother.

Thor addressed the issue earlier in the day on Chicago's "Windy City Live."

“At what point do we let an American citizen get done with the justice process?” he asked. “I mean this is a big deal, this could happen to anybody. If the government can keep hounding you, this guy’s life is ruined at this point. I know we have a dead child here but he was found not guilty by a jury of his peers. Trayvon Martin wasn’t on trial, George Zimmerman was, and he’s not guilty…at what point does he get to recommence his life?”

Never, if the leftist extremists have anything to say about it.

I went to one of his book signing events yesterday, bought his latest book, and finished reading it today.

"A panelist on the program asked whether “it’s really a good idea to give George Zimmerman a gun back?”"

Encapsulates everything that is wrong with this country in 2013 and why Obama and his minions are running roughshod over us.

a plane ticket to Taiwan might be more useful than a gun at this point. Zimmerman’s life as he knew it is now over. He’s a posterboy for the left’s rage. he can come out of this prosperously but he’s going to have to fight for it and he risks losing everything-life included.

Agreed. Time to buy more of his books - anyone who stands up against evil gets my financial support, and the alleged “Justice” Department definitely qualifies as an organization to stand up against.

Brad Thor is really truly on of the good guys. His books are top notch. I’m about halfway through his latest one. Lots of Colonial History mixed in with mystery and spy thriller. Very good so far.

Interesting point about Zimmerman being the posterboy for the left’s rage. It’s ironic yet amusing that he is a minority and a registered DemocRAT who voted for Obama. The left and the RATS are “godless” and they devour their own. Obama and Holder in their “godless and lawless pursuit” of Zimmerman are savage-like in their quest. The jury has spoken and so has the Great OZ........

Make it a KelTec PMR30 for those “target rich environments” like “Justice for Trayvon” rallies, riots, and such. 30 rds of 22 Mag without reloading.

I am going to have to look at Brad Thor's books.

Very well written. Great stories that move at a good pace. Combination of Tom Clancy without the technospeak, and Clive Cussler with out the formulaic writing.

I met Brad Thor at a fund raiser for the congressional candidate that beat the 28 year incumbent in my district in 2010.

I will, based just on this.

Can’t help thinking that Vince Flynn would have done the same.

And, not just “Screw the DOJ” but SCREW ERIC HOLDER, the Communist Racist behind this whole illegal and immoral persecution of GZ.

Me too! Will take a look at Brad Thor's books.

Loved a remark I saw on Twitchy re: George Zimmerman's gun:

The Department of Justice, which is weighing civil rights charges against Zimmerman, put a hold on all evidence in the case, including his firearm. Attorney General Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder isn’t about to lose track of this gun.

George might need a little extra stopping power for when the black panthers come after him. He should give him one of those double barreled 45s... only gold plated to show he really cares!

I finished his latest book today, “Hidden Order.” Very good and very educational about the fed reserve system.

I will have to check out his books. I really liked Vince Flynn and have all his books, but alas he has departed too young and there will be no more to follow.

Buy George a Springfield XD(M) in .40 S&W. Reliable and 11+1 rounds of life insurance in the flush fitting magazine or 16+1 in the extended. It certainly beats a Kahr PM-9.

Never heard of him, and in fact I do not GENERALLY read modern “pop” fiction.

Nevertheless, I’ll put one of his books on my Kindle.

Rock and roll...

Maybe the BACKLASH against the left’s RACISM has begun!?

I'm not sure what you call 'pop fiction' but Brad Thor is the real deal.....and his 'spy novels' mirror current Machiavellian maneuvers of our government and also foreign governments...

...also his books are just a good read.
If you have a conservative, rule of law, soul....you will get hooked on his books.

I am.....I've read all....except the latest.

fwiw, I thought it amusing that at the Spy Museum in DC (which is fascinating) Thors (and Flynns & Silvas) books are front and center on display in the gift/book shop.

I listened to Thor and was stunned - he has the facts of the case exactly right from the very beginning when they were shopping around for a district attorney who would charge Z. and then bringing in a special prosecutor to get the job done. He had all that correct. I will surely buy his new book which involves the Federal Reserve. He mentioned the book before this one was about the NSA. This writer knows his business - PLUS HE IS ONE GOOD LOOKING DUDE.

Kudos to Brad Thor for his gesture

The Black Racists will boycott his books....but he just added a few million readers in the process. Buy a Thor book for Zimmerman

Got one. Great little gun but a 2 year wait on backorder.

Since Thor is buying I’d go with a Sig Extreme in 9MM.
