A firearms website created by some Tampa gun enthusiasts announced today it is collecting money to help pay for George Zimmerman’s legal defense.

Christopher Kossmann, 23, and three friends founded Legal Boom: Gun law for the Gunshine State last year to explain Florida’s self-defense laws, he said.

Describing as a “hobbyist website,” Kossman said none of the members are lawyers and they pay expenses out of their pockets.

He has not met Zimmerman, 28, but is trying to reach his attorney, Craig Sonner of Altamonte Springs to discuss the fundraising effort.
