An Ohio gun rights group has sent George Zimmerman more than $12,000.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder earlier this month. The Buckeye Firearms Foundation says the money was raised for Zimmerman’s defense or any other expenses he or his family might have.

The organization says one of its main objectives is to defend gun rights around the nation.

Zimmerman admitted to shooting and killing Trayvon Martin in February of 2012, but he says it was self defense.
