Story by 89 WLS Web Writer Kim Rasmussen
(CHICAGO) Best-selling author Brad Thor offered to buy George Zimmerman a gun while filling in for Dan Proft on the 89 WLS "Bruce and Dan" show Friday morning.
Thor had originally tweeted Thursday evening:
RT If you want to see me buy George #Zimmerman a new handgun in Chicago + all the ammunition he wants, & deliver it on national TV.— Brad Thor (@BradThor) July 19, 2013
Bruce Wolf asked Thor about his offer and Thor said he would make good since the Department of Justice is witholding all evidence related to Trayvon Martin, including Zimmerman's gun.
Thor joked that people would be waiting for him in the lobby. However, it may have been no joking matter. Thor has received threats on Twitter since his offer gained publicity.
