INVERNESS, Florida -

A gun store declared "Muslim-free" in July is selling signed prints of the Confederate flag painted by George Zimmerman, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, was recently sued by the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida after he posted a video to YouTube in which he said that Muslims could not shop at his store. Hallinan was standing in front of a Confederate flag in the video.

In a 10-minute long video posted on the store's website, Hallinan discusses the sale with Zimmerman, who said he decided to donate the paintings after hearing about the lawsuit against Hallinan. Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 after shooting and killing Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in a case that sparked protests and a national debate about race relations.

According to the website, the painting was originally an American flag, but Zimmerman decided to repaint it as a Confederate flag when he heard about the lawsuit.

The duo said they will split the proceeds to support their legal funds, living expenses and "advancing their mission to change the country."
