ORLANDO, Fla. (WFTV) -- George Zimmerman may be shopping for a shotgun, WFTV found out Friday.

A picture was posted Thursday night on TMZ's website.

In the he photo, he was all smiles after he allegedly went gun shopping at Keltec, a gun manufacturing company in Cocoa.

Zimmerman was reportedly asking about the legality of buying a Keltec GSC shotgun.

Early this week, Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said Zimmerman has been concerned for his safety since a jury found him not guilty of murder charges for killing Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman went into hiding after he was cleared in that trial.

Protests have popped up all around the country since then calling for changes to stand your ground laws in dozens of states, including Florida.

A video ad was posted online earlier this week telling voters to ask legislators to change things.

O'Mara said that's just one more example of why Zimmerman may be in fear.

I don't think he could buy enough guns, after loud mouth lying thugs put a dead or alive poster out on him. But if I was still working and he and his wife wanted to 'hire' a personal body guard until the news hounds and thugs leave him alone, I would love it, absolutely love it.

Good for him, with all the riots that broke out over him being declared a guilt free man id be loading up in guns too. Only difference is i wouldnt have waited this long.

Keep saying this was about race and trigger race war lets see how the thugs like Trayvon Martin fare then. He was criminal and now apparently the news wants to see Zimmerman dead for defending himself from a drug using thief. These are facts. Obama and Martin both should be in jail for defending that human garbage. This include Beyoncé as well and the Miami heat player that wants his kids to be just like Trayvon Martin the innocent good school kid. The boy's personal files disgust me that they try make him into personal sainthood folk hero when he was nothing but a wanna be gangsta in his own words.

So what? Leave this man alone. He has been tried by a jury of his peers. If I were him, I would have every source of self-defense/protection that I could lay my hands on. The media is fueling the effort to destroy this way or the other. Move on.
