Florida Gun Supply is now selling prints of a Confederate flag painting by Trayvon Martin's killer George Zimmerman, the Washington Times reports.

According to the store's website, the prints are selling for the low, low price of $50, and if you order online in the next four days, you'll even get free shipping. But wait, there's more: Anyone who buys a print is automatically entered into a contest to win the original, because who doesn't want the mediocre painting of a racist symbol handcrafted by a guy who became famous for shooting an unarmed black kid?

You might remember Florida Gun Supply from stories last month about owner Andy Hallinan dubbing his store a "Muslim-free zone" in response to the shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He even took to CNN to discuss the ban, where he said the kinds of stuff you would expect from someone teaming up with George Zimmerman. Islam is "evil at its core," Hallinan said, adding that he wants to "offend as many people as possible."

Some of the people Hallinan offended were members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which quickly filed a lawsuit against Hallinan. That's when Zimmerman stepped in to do his pal a solid.

The proceeds from the Confederate flag print sales will go towards the various legal fees the two face, as well as their "mission for change," whatever that is. The duo is also going to kick a bit of cash to the Boys and Girls Club of America to "help support the next generation!"
