Why does he feel the need to pose for a picture of him purchasing a gun after the big trial that everyone talked about all across America?? couldnt he just buy a gun and just move on like everyone else does?

Hes just a killer and attention whore. Feeling like an hero because he shot down a 17 year old kid

The photo seems to be in poor taste. Becoming a public spokesman for guns themselves would obviously be an egregious, needless move on Zimmerman's part.

But, it does seem like a "employee takes pic with [insert well known person] to put on their facebook page" kind of thing, and it was discovered/leaked and being made out into something else (like "Zimmerman is gloating to the cameras").

Assuming he is gloating, though, to me it's obvious Zimmerman and his family (based on comments) are spiteful over the public and media's witch hunt against him, as the law essentially found him not guilty right after the incident (detained, brought him to the police station, questioned him, but no evidence to arrest him) and then not guilty again months later in a huge trial.

This is why you need to learn how to read.

I quoted him because he's acting like It's no big deal that GZ is taking pictures at gun shops following a high profile case in which he murdered a kid. Read all the previous comments he's made on this matter.

Now, if your talking about the "bolded" parts of dude77's post that I quoted, then you should know that I didn't bold those words, they were already bolded in his original comment. I just quoted his whole statement concerning him trying to defend these tasteless pictures that even GZ's own attorney wasn't too fond of.

Ya understand?

ahem. zimmerman is --not-- in the news because he had his pic taken at a gunshop.

- he is in the news because his attorneys are calling him out publicly, and for the event in question.
- the event in question is... he had his pic taken during a tour of a gun FACTORY, and the pic was passed on to TMZ news.
- it was a private tour conducted by the son of the company founder.
- the factory is the very same one that made the gun zimmerman used on trayvon martin.

For all intents and purposes, it's pretty much the same.

Wouldn't be much different if he went to his local gun store, picked up the same Kel-Tec gun he showed interest in, and posed with it with the guy who runs the store.... Basically the same thing, in the public's eye.

His attorneys called him out after the fact, after it was leaked. His attorneys are pretty much doing damage control for him, I don't even see it as calling him out necessarily as much as they're stating the obvious. They're saying what Zimmerman's PR people would likely say ("we don't agree with it, it's not what we planned, we're going to try and change it blah blah blah")
